progress

Once I got the shifter pin in the correct position I went to work. I finished wiring the battery, rear light and grounds. I added the seat, the tank and I finished the rear brake arm. I ended up inserting the bolt from the inside going out. I hope that works...... All I really have left to do is ......

Thanks

Thanks Dave. The rear brake arm pivot bolt was my next issue. I'll readdress that as soon as I get the shifter pin turned around. Tommy, thanks for your input. Since the drive shaft is not connected yet it may be a lot easier tilting the engine. I'm out of town until Tuesday. I will have plenty of t...

Shifter

Well ..... Im going to listen to you. It's the reason I'm here, correct? The engine is bolted in but the drive shaft is not connected yet and the swing arm is still loose.

shift lever

Your engine may be in, but the tranny is going to have to come back out. The shift lever has to go on before the transmission is installed. You can't get the bolt up through, and it HAS to come up through. No real biggie, but it has to be done. Dave Hey Dave, Take a look at the 4th photo. The shift ...

LED

Thanks Jambo ....... I lost him after the first email but from what I found everything you listed is correct. I wasn't going to get the parking light or the license plate bulb but why not. The prices are very reasonable. Im sold on the LED technology. I have LED bulbs in my R1200GS and Honda XR650L....

Progress

I had a little bit of progress today. The front swing arm was done so I will able to pick it up and install the front end of the bike. While I was there the pin striper was painting the tank and fenders. I didn't get to see it all but I caught a glimpse of the tank and front fender. I pick up everyt...
