Progress but now I'm held up by parts. Throttle's not in and I can't order cables until then.

Lower radiator hose from a Ford panel van. I'll end up cutting off half the hose but I think this is going work.

It kinda shocks me because the stock wires are ten times better than most aftermarket wires I see on airheads. The bike seems to be yearning for some yellow graphite wires that will look the part.

I'd have to tie new plug wires to a rope and drag them through a few hundred miles of trail to make them match the rest of the bike. It's just too much work to switch plug wires considering that so I stuck with the stockers. It was a simple cost-benefit analysis.
