    Thanks. I'll get some pics of the brake stay I mounted. The wiring harness is going to be a while more than likely. Still waiting on parts to finish it.

    Time for a new update. This project went a lot faster than I anticipated. Thanks to everyone here for the help with my questions. I can't believe its the beginning of Nov and I'm finishing with my "winter project". The bike is complete except for hooking up the blinkers. I'm just waiting on a controller to do that with, also have some wires to hide. Like I said this is just an update as I am waiting until it's complete and I can grab some pics before I finish up my thread. Should be shortly so be patient. Here is a teaser to the finished bike. Ask away with any questions and feel free to compliment or criticize my thread thus far. Will check back in soon. Ta Ta. Oh I almost forgot, the 2 ports on top of my valve covers for the pollution crap can just be blocked off correct? It just had a hose with a t in it routed to the back of the motor when I got it. I was going to find some caps to block it off? As you can see in the picture I have them taped off for the time being.

    Yeah, you can just block them off, APE sells some covers for like $50 that bolt right on. Just emissions bullshit.

    Cool. we actually have factory here in town that makes vynal vacum caps. Back in my hot rod days I would dumpster dive to get what I needed. Just tried the other day and only found trash. LOL I guess they re cycle now. Ill check autozone or Oreilys and see what they have.

    I have a kz750 twin. it has the same ports on the valve cover. I used rubber stops with some hose clamps to block it off. just wanted to know if I need to change these to some metal bolts like you were talking about doing for performance issues or if I can keep my setup?

    You are fine with what you have. I ended up finding a pack of vacumecaps at Autozone for a couple bucks. If you want to clean up the hose clamp look, any rubber cap that is 1/2" will work. Anymore questions just let me know. Was thinking sometime down the road of just making whole new block off plates.

    Well the original seat I built ended up being a little small. It was nice fit on the bike but I tend to slide backward a little while riding. Instead of making a new pan again I found one at Voodoo Vintage for 15 bucks. Can't beat that and I had a great experience with the hard tail that David built. So it came in last night. Another great product from David. Just waiting on the tool to put the rivets in.

    The whole project looks great.

    I have to seriously thank you!

    Your pics answered about 40k questions for me. Now I see that brake stay set up, like it very clean and functional.

    Some other ques:

    Any reason why your not running some type of chain tensioner, no need etc?
    Lowering the forks internally, any specific springs or other parts changed?
    Have you bottom out with the change?

    Appreciate the info.

    Must also put a plug in for David, quality in work and in general great guy to deal with.

    I am very happy with my 750 hard tail from voodoo. Hopefully be going up to see him on a few odd and ends next month or so. From there I hope finish it out before spring.

    That is bad ass man. I just love those big inline 4's. Way cooler looking in my opinion than the V-twin.

    Man! Im LOVING how this bike turned out! It looks really great. The length of it is great. I'm actually building a VooDoo CB750 right now and yours looks a lot longer to me. Is there any chance you can measure from the center of the front axle to the end of the rear axle slot in the drop out? I'd greatly appreciate it brotha!

    Thank you for the comments. I have not installed a chain tensioner simply cause I don't have the money yet. Lol. I actually didn't end up lowering the forks because I liked the way it set without it. If you mean bottoming out on the bike I only scrape going over speed bumps and such, and occasionally on some turns. Not bad at all. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Thanks a lot. I love it myself. Can't hardly stand to not ride it in this stupid weather.

    And here is some updated pics from last weekend. Rode about 100 miles but it sure didn't seem like it. The red one is my nephews XS650. It's a pretty sweet ride.

    I still have some wiring to hide, exhaust wrap, and blinkers to wire. I guess there never really done though.

    Came out nice and that didn't take long at all! Where'd you mount the battery? And you plan on putting a fender on it?

    I thought it looked longer. Is actually 2" longer than my cb750. Thanks for measuring that and keep up the good work!
