That's actually a great idea! I'm going to wire that up now and get rid of the lamp That's there!

Im thinking I don't have to buy a engine kill/start assembly when I get the new bars... Either make the left on/off switch do engine kill, or short them out so they're always on...

Thanks!

Glad I was able to make a contribution to your machine :highfive:
Your seat install is clean! 20 minutes you say? I might have to pull the trigger and give it a shot.

After having someone turn left RIGHT in front of me last night, I decided to hold off on my purchase of the Yoshimura carbon exhaust for some brighter lights and a front end with disc brakes...
Luckily she stopped 3/4 of the way into three leave, but I realize that if she didn't I'd have gone right into the driver's door... The drum brakes just aren't very great.
I put a polini variator with 6g sliders and a gates belt in, so that doesn't help ;)

So here is the first result... An 18W Cree LED light bar I picked up on Craigslist for $52. Wired it to my other on/off switch in the BB, and as per TRUSTMEDOOD's suggestion, I wired the turn signal indicator to the LED in the switch. They're REALLY bright... I might have to make a bit of a visor for them so they don't point up as much...

Today I decided to lower my front fender as much as I could so that I could lower the angle of my LED bar... It was pointing way too high for my liking, plus the lower fender looks better!

Great looking seat. Can you post an overall side view of the ruck with the lowered front fender? TIA

It's been a while since my last post. It's rain season here on the north-left-coast so my ruckus is officially off the road. That being said, my carbon fibre Jiang Wayne exhaust is in and installed.
This exhaust is meant to work with the stock 75 jet, therefore, no rejecting or tuning is required! It's a direct bolt-on dealy and took about 15 minutes!
I have to say, it looks awesome, and sounds amazing. It's definitely louder, but also deeper and throatier than stock. Not to mention lighter!

No bracket for rear fender support? That's too bad. Looks like a good pipe for those who don't run rear fenders.

Yea, I was thinking of making one, but I'll probably just end up cutting it way back...probably at the half way mark.

In the next 6 months I'll be getting my MOJO GET Fatty kit, so I won't be using that fender anyways...

Phase II of the Mojo-Customs GET Fatty kit.
I ordered the 12" douglas rim, kimco hub, and Viper Stryke tire. I'll be using the full 12.5" stretch from the kit.

got rid of the stock airbox and replaced it with three K&N filters. I have the crankcase vacuum coming off the air intake, and I've also capped off the pair check valve.
I also cleaned and rejetted my carb with a 38 pilot (slow) jet. Because I have the Jiang Wayne exhaust, which works with the stock 75 main jet, I'm going to leave that...but I did pick up a 78 and 80 Main jet too, just in case ^_^

Over the next week I will build a bracket to hold the air intake hose a bit better (and see if I can find a replacement that's a bit stiffer)
I also need to put a 3" long extension and some spacers in the exhaust to bring it out a bit.

With that intake tube you will probably have to upjet.

the main jet as well? I have a 78 and 80 on standby, but I'm going to try just the pilot for now, as that is what the locals are using.

I would be shocked if a 75 main works with that intake. Not that it couldn't though.

The moment I've long been waiting for: my Mojo custom 12x8 Douglas rim and Viper Stryke tire stretch kit...of course I went big and installed the 12.5" stretch

I'm replacing the air intake hose tomorrow, and need to find a kickstand, and I'll be ready for the summer...enjoy some before and after shots!:
