Got it. Thank you. Where did you get the part that screws into the head? it sounds like it has the same OD as the Mikuni carb. That's where my problem was. I randomly found an old NOS aftermarket part on eBay.
Dad commented in an email that we'll need to keep an eye on this plumbing coupling to make sure the fuel doesn't break it down. I think I'm going to take one and soak it in fuel for a week to see how it holds up.
Things are moving forward, the fairing is at the painter so we should have some nice body work soon. The bike is a clearly hybrid of the old and the new.
Last year I pryed the fork reflectors off because they didn't go with the theme. Dad recently made some nice plates to fill the void left. I think they look nice. If you look on right side of pic you can see the blue bean can of the wedgetail system.
Here's a view from above showing the light weight starter installed. We're too old to be trying to bump start the bike!

Bodywork is back from the painter, we're very happy with the results. Unfortunately the wrong plexiglass was sent when we bought fairing last year so working with supplier to remedy. Main thing left to do is mount oil cooler. Bike should be ready to start soon.
Not sure if this is of interest, but for completeness I thought I would include the schematic I came up with for wiring harness. I grabbed some of the images from the parts diagrams even though oil lamp is an LED, starter is EME lighter one, and ignition is from Wedgetail. Pretty simple.

Interesting build. Thanks for posting. In the pics last posted, I'm curious who makes the foam velocity stack covers you are using. I need some for a project and haven't found any quite as "clean" as those. Appreciated.
Stacks and filters from Speed Moto in Oregon. Filters can be ordered in red, black or green. It's been fun scouring the internet looking for various bits. Everything I purchased was really high quality. We've kept a journal of everything we purchased.
We received the correct plexiglass which is now installed. Bike is just a few weeks away from being started. Motoforza was the company that supplied fairing and plexi. Soon as I notified the incorrect plexiglass had shipped they sent over the correct one.
