Do you run the wideband off the scoot battery or a battery pack in the backpack?

My wideband has a bunch of wires you can wire up to a serial port and use with a laptop or other device. I also have no intention of using that so I just zip them out of the way.

Its an obscene tangle of wires. For power I took apart a booster pack for jumpstarting cars, removedthose big clamps and tied in a batterytender conector.

RatsAss! I couldnt source the brake caliper so after better troubleshooting found the mounting bracket was bent. Straightened it out, a d functioning brakes! The other issue with the brake is the hole for the bolts are are a size to big, so if the bolt isnt tight enough it can lose position and drag on the sproket. If I cant figure a wee sized spacer thing ill just locktite the hell of it. Cut out these pegs and will hunt for something more RatSassy

I'm going to use the smallest tire I got for the Rat and looked all over for spacer material. Scored! And I was just about to give up.

Lots of sanding done and more to do. Got some nuts welded on for the wheelie bar.

And boy am I glad I practiced bending bars before buying new ones. Mounting bars are going to be a bitch! I do love the piston head look on the clamps though.

I hate painting! Im just terrible at it. But im not one to let disappointment slow me down, it rolls. The steering is now solid. Even though the bars are to be replaced I'll use them for now so I can move on.

My next bikes going to be black, I cant seem to GET these colors right.
My rear tube popped but i think ace has them. I got a 20mm carb coming from wisconson :banger: . I was cleaning the brake caliper and noticed a crack, have to order a new one.
Ive got a few little things coming from china like throttle cable and header wrap.
