Thanks for the photos...

On another note I received my Race Tech front springs and I have a couple of questions. I assumed they would be the same length as the stock springs, but they are shorter and require a spacer. Well the last time I had the stock springs out they seemed to be longer than what these are.

1) I am not sure what size I should cut this pvc down to? I know the longer it is the more preload it will have. There is a formula somewhere, but I cannot seem to find it.

2) Does the pvc spacer go on top or below the spring?

Been a while since I've updated this and I am almost done with this project. Not the best photos in the world. Once it's complete my buddy is going to do a little photo shoot.

As far as engine mods really none yet. I did cut the stock pipes shorter leaving a single baffle.

* 34mm Mikuni's
* Clip Ons
* Toaster Tan fork brace
* Racetech front springs
* Raask Rearsets
* Ohlins BM141 shocks
* Dual ATE front disc setup (still haven't done the plumbing for the right caliper yet)
* Complete Motorrad charging system (and it still does not charge)
* Airtech rear cowl and front fender
* Custom stitched seat
* Odyssey Gel and battery relocation
* Powder coated frame
* Polished hand controls







To do till complete: (for now)
* I still need to construct a catch can and a airbox cover. It's in the works and I've got some good ideas.

* Figure out why it's still nto charging

* Plumb the right front caliper


Then I believe I am done. Time for the next project...

That thing does look good - it's amazing how long and sleek they can look with that tail.

I recently finished my own catch can/airbox cover and so far, so good if you need any ideas. (I did end up using individual choke pulls though - the mess of cables created by this was just too much)

Where did you route your negative battery cable?

Otherwise the bike looks great!

Looks good, where did you get the rear-sets? I'm looking for rear sets for my monolever RS.

I bringing this one back from the grave. I've been riding the crap out of this bike and I am embarrassed to say it still does not charge. Good thing is I can ride it all day long before it finally craps out. Yeah not good for the battery, but the Odyssey is still going strong.

I'll answer these questions a year and half later. LOL...

Bike rides fine. A bit stiff though as I have pretty heavy Racetech springs in and heavier fork oil. I forget the weight, but I thought about lowering it.

Battery cable routes down along the frame and into the air inlet on top of the starter cover. It is grounded in the stock location.

The rear sets are Rassk from Omar's. http://www.rearsets.info/

I think I'm going to start a new thread about the charging system it has been an absolute puzzle. I've got Rick's book and have been picking his brain.
