Some might say a tailored adventure bike is a contradiction in terms...

Question about the break pedal; With the "tab" up is the pedal at the same level as the Stock one or above/below the level? reason I ask is I am looking for an easy way to lower the pedal.

Enjoying watching the transformations.

won't lower the lever for you if you're looking for lower stand over.... in the up (outta the way position) the level is the same as stock... in the down (in the way position) the level is raised to make braking while standing easier...

Awsome job! So if I were to leave my bike at your house would this start happening to mine. I am under the house rules of "Ride it to it breaks".(Wife) and pretty much you just posted my wishlist.

So, Any one interested in buying one of my kids!

My bike was the opposite of yours, I need my rear wheel back from Woody.

It's looking really good now.

Yeah it takes some getting used to. The first couples times I filled it, I did it on the center stand then it pissed fuel on the side stand. The petcocks are f%^king annoying being that when they're closed, one is forward and one is backward. The vent hitting the triple tree sucks too. I'm going to re-route the vent toward the center of the bike then between the bar clamps then up behind the guages and back down.

I really think the option of using main take vent line to suck the fuel TT tank is the best option

How close to the triple did you mount the T? Do you have any pics?
