Yup. Works great. Just wish it was that easy to seat the bead.

Relocated the Mikuni to the back of the airbox and pulled a new vacuum source from the rear cylinder. Ran new fuel lines and buttoned it all back up. Also worked on my trailer.

Wise man, he has the centre stand strapped in place. If it rolls forward off the stand with no rear wheel in place its a pain.

What did you use to mount the driving lights? I have a set mounted to my crash bars and would like to mount them similar to yours.

I have similar lights, mounted on a straight length of 1" x 1" x 1/8" angle. There are threaded holes on the aluminium front subframe that I used. Factory use the holes for the horn mount.

Mine had adjustable L brackets that I bolted to the holes that held the screen/grill assembly.
