Thinking about using this same kit on my 73 sl350. Is it a universal set-up? Im really liking the look of it.

your bike looks good. That gt550 is pretty sweet. Lots of fun to ride a 2 stroke on the street. I've got a gt500 and it's a blast.

Are those drilled fence post caps? I'm using header reducer flanges as velocity stacks with sink crumb catchers mounted in the bases of them to keep shit out. Really dig your bike so far! Keep it up!

Bikes lookin pretty sick man. Is it ever low! How much ground clearance you think you have? Whats your plans with the exhaust or are you just running straight headers?

Ya it's almost too low! Haha o well I was going to build exhaust but money is pushing that back so headers will do!!

Have you opened up your forks yet? if not, you could lower them forks, so much so, you could even go rigid up front! or are you going to rake out the front? I am curious, as you did change the whole thing to the better side as it is already! {rigid rear} sections I favor ,,,very highly!!! I still refuse to even have springs or any type of suspension in the back of any of my chops! Hers are the only ones with suspension in the rear of the bikes!!!

I layered them about 4 inches...of I go any lower the front part of the frame will just drag!
