Impressive.
Are you going for a 2into1 for further weight savings?

What was your wet weight target and how close are you to that?

It looks great! Where does the battery move to, or is the SE location different than the ADV?Also trying to find some real feedback on the Teraflex. Good, bad or indifferent for 10-15% hardpack/pavement and the rest, goat track?

mounting system

very effective design and beautiful welding! do you use 3 mounts? including the bottom stock motor mount? and how do you feel about adding outer case protection to prevent side impacts or siliding grinding ones?

Well, the skid plate goes with the underseat oil tank... and I doubt there would be many willing to pay for what the entire kit would cost. But thanks for the compliment...
