It looks like I may have to find a new way to mount my rear brake switch, I know the spring needed to be moved but the switch was a surprise.

I dealt with the same issues when I built mine. I posted a build thread on TT (too late to help you now)

After thinking about this for the past three days... I'm left with no choice.
I had a family problem in the beginning of the year that drained me emotionally and financially that I'm having trouble recovering from...

Sad, but I must.

The "L" updated with F.I., water cool, bigger tank, stronger subframe, 6th gear, cush hub and a 60lb. weight loss would fit the bill. I know it could be done, why don't they? Fokkers
I'm almost with you on this, but for a multi-day adventure bike air cooling is sooo appealing. Every time I read that someone's trip was ended from a radiator issue I love the L more. Modern FI is INCREDIBLY reliable, though, so how about an air-cooled FI bike with a perimeter ali frame, 700cc, maybe 45 horses, large torque, six speed tranny in a 270 pound package. A bike for the ages. Oh well, when I get my new CW motor with the NX gears, small lithium battery, CRF frond ended machine put together, it'll be close

I had the same issues, but the switch just needed a little massaging into position and the triangle only is an issue if you use the kickstarter. When I kick mine, the lever gets caught on the return stroke so I just reach down and pop it back up past that guard. I figure the kickstart is only there for emergencies so I am not going to worry about it.

You could always hammer that triangle in a little bit or cut it off.

Hand-pump huh? that's one way to get a work-out!

Enjoy the new motor my friend!
Right on, I'll mess with it a little more, I really don't want to cut the frame... the kickstart knob I might cut off of though .

The hand pump actually works great for pushing oil into the motor, I cut the stem off of a bad tube then push it into the oil line from the head to the tank (with the tank side still attached) before I start it. As soon as I started it I had oil squirting out of the banjo bolt .

That's a great thread! Thanks for the reassurance with the brake pedal/switch issue, I'll work it out. I might have to put the original crankcase cover back on and figure it out later due to time constraints though .

Sorry to hear this but remember, you can always get another bike. Family stuff is always more important than bikes IMO. Hang in there.
