Gotta watch how close they get to the heads, but I agree about the Aerostitch looking better.

the head is a concern to me as is the air flow to the rear cyclinder. I can't run a set that blocks that air in the slow pace riding. I may have to get some built the same pattern as the side of the tank

I don't know what it would be like trying to fit one in, but remember Buells use a fan for the rear cylinder.

yea that fan was LOUD you could use it as a horn I'm weird about that stuff, like the BMW servo brakes I hated them because of the noise they made. At a stop light all that buzzing drove me nuts. The buell had to use the fan because of the body,frame and rider position limited air to the rear cylinder. On a stock sporty the riders legs work as a spoiler to direct air to the back cylinder.

Yeah, what he said.

I found this, looking for Jimmy the Hogs build, both are really cool.
Thanks for sharing your build.

this is to be the last update for a while, work has demanded 3 solid weeks of my time.

I have the tachometer issue fixed, I put in a resistor of 575k. That is a relief



Here are a few shots to give the ergonomics of the set up. I am 5'9" and 190lbs









just to compare his is the klr riding position

I didn't think anyone would mind.

I haven't joined a local chapter yet. When I first joined the CMA, there wasn't a local chapter. Then I was on a forced break for a while.

Now, the Cross Spoke Riders #930 in Tyler, TX has started, so I'll probably meet up with them.

I'm also president of Chapter #73 of the Freedom Cruisers Riding Club, so it looks like I may be a little busy soon.

I really like what you're doing with the Sporty. I'm going to be modifying mine soon, but probably not as much as you guys are. Mine will be for street and mild off road use.

Looking forward to seeing yours finished!

One concern that was brought up in this post is the steering stops being too weak. Just so you know I do listen to the suggestions it just takes awhile to get back to them. Anyway here is the new steering stop it should hold up



I like to use tank panniers as they are a very convenient storage place and help to keep the weight balanced front to back. The issue is trying to figure it out with such a small tank . the two set I have are the aerostich and the wolfman bags. Here is how they look on the bike.

wolfman


aerostich



I think the aerostich bags look and work better whats your thoughts
'stich ones all the way.
