Channellocks. Big assed ones.

Man, wait until 3-4 months down the road when the bike runs great, you did your awesome trip and now you just get to tinker with it. Some guy will come into the forum with a crazy build, hard deadline and will be ripping his hair out, no sleep racing to get the bike done. Remember that.

You can dooooo eeeeeeeeet

Not on this thing, the filter is flush with the bottom of the sump.

I still have to rebuild the final drive this weekend.

Everything was a struggle today, needed somebody to hold stuff, but fought the bars flopping around instead.

It was pretty tough to get the throttle cables routed good, but they're in there now. Motion "Pro" completely ignored my request for an extra splitter to be included in my order and I think I should have one, these are cheap and crappy. There are spreader pins up at the throttle to keep the cables apart and one was too long...cracked the housing, F Motion "Pro", I've had it with them. Not that big of a deal, it still works and another one is $16...I'm partly to blame for not fixing it before I cracked the housing.

Random pics...












Changing the engine running goal to Saturday, just too much to do yet.

I think I'm going to need a longer Adventure model rear shock at some point.

Four quarts, got it. Get used to calling me Rob since we might meet in meatspace.


One more pic from earlier.




mike54 is super awesome!!!



Thanks mike, I was gonna run the old filter and worry about it later. The 1348 Wix doesn't fit that tool for your info.


Got the oil and filter changed just now. Started putting the back fender on. Co-workers are begging me to get some sleep.

Started wiring today. Heard Poolside in my head, "Solder, you will.".




Welded a bracket in for my ignition switch.




Done:




Going pretty good, got the ignition box fully wired.




Put the back of the bike together and got the wiring started.




It only takes a couple of minutes for a quick put together to see where things are at.






Somehow I got the right side box about an inch closer to the bike than the other side...time allowing I'll fix it.




Had this waiting for me when I got home.




I did more than that, but I'm too tired to type about it.

That is very cool. These are the little details that make a bike unique and you seems to have a never ending supply of them going on in this project...you suck.

I want to do some little things like that on the TY 250. Small little things that would make someone else go...WTF...did you see that...

Thanks guys.


Put my diagrams up for easy viewing and now I won't keep misplacing them.




Plumbed the fuel lines.






Installed and wired the blinkers.






Getting really close. Got the alternator and starter hooked up today too.




Dear Santa, please bring me a heat gun I'm sick of this propane torch.
