    Default Iginition Relocation

    i ordered a DK customs Ignition Relocation kit since all there other kits worked so well. Yeah they do not work on my year bike at all. I ended up Relocating my ignition to the right side of the battery, its hidden and loos different. I'll post up pics tomorrow. Along with that I snapped my belt so Lowbrow Chain conversion kit is on the way. Hopefully I'll be good to go soon.

    You'll need 1-7/8" socket and it's opposite thread so roll the bikes front tire up against a wall and use a breaker bar. If you're not stretching the frame tho, why not put a belt on and be done, they're great as long as you leave the belt guard on.

    I just trust chains more than anything, Belts are too weak weak with my belt guard.

    I wasn't saying a belt guard makes a belt stronger lol, I just see a lot of guys take them off to get a stripped down look and pick up rocks and stuff. You seem to be doing a lot of cosmetic stuff and I thought the chain was something that you felt looked more old school cool to you. I won't post in your "build"thread anymore, I've done a lot of stuff with Sporties and maybe I shouldn't put my two cents in anymore, sory, have fun

    Default Chain Conversion Day

    Well i purchased a chain conversion kit from Lowbrow customs and here we go, mind my belt snapped already so it made it a bit harder.
    First i ditched the old belt drive and put on the sproket wasn't too hard but you have to have some muscle to get it off.

    Next came the next sproket, since my belt was snapped i couldn't put the bike against a wall so I had to impervised and it worked out.
    then after that i put it all together and just need to break the chain and set the tire all the way to the front and adjust. Not a bad day, i took her inside since its so windy out here in NY and lots of sand blowing around still. Working on the rear fender now, have a scorpion king and queen on the way. And oh yeah i painted my exhaust flat black which turned out great. Very productive day!

    You have to of spent about $220.00 on the chain conversion and a chain. You can get sport belts for $75.00 free ship on ebay. Just sayin', if you just kept it belt you would have at least $150.00 to buy a cool little gas tank.

    chain conversion was $160, and chain was $40. A good decent kevlar belt, that wont snap after a rock hits it is $180 for this bike. I like the look of the chain and the feel, I've sold almost a $700 of parts I have taken off this bike. So I have some room left left for a tank, not sure which one to go with just yet still deciding what guys think. I was thinking maybe a Frisco tank?

    Starting to look good. Shame you cut your rails tho. With the fender you ended up with you could of left them. A swingarm mounted fender set up can get that fender real close to the tire.
    Your passenger will never forgive you tho.
    It's taking shape, keep up the good work

    Default Back in Black

    Well I've been away now for the past month for training, but I am back and finally evened out that paint. Seems everyone is doing the flat black thing but there is a reason behind mine. Doing a memorial for my bud TJ who was KIA last year, and it requires a black tank. Then i got caught in the rain one day and never again without a front fender. So i threw that back on. Ended up cleaning up the bike since its all apart, Here is the process of it. Enjoy.

    not trying to be a wiseguy--but it looks like you ended up with pretty much the same bike as you started

    its all good, its changed completly for me. Chain conversion, tank lift, lowered it, first time painting my own bike. This is my first crack at everything so its been great for me. This winter coming I'm hardtailing it. I'm having fun with it

    It's always good to see someone dive right in and get their hands dirty. It is very satisfying to change things up
    and then ride away on the results. So until stage 2 (hardtail) ride the wheels off of it !

    i would save ching and get it painted. i like the look and the stance, but i have always hated flat black jobs on most bikes, looks like a cop out. the chain conversion looks great. i also think the lack of fender struts looks a little weird since your running a full fender on the back (or most of one) have you mocked up a short ducktail fender to try? anyways this is just my opinion not that you asked for it. oh and how are you jetted for those drag pipes?

    Yeah i'm actually not in love with the paint looking to do something a bi tmore radical. And i'm gonna add my rear turn signals soon to the rear fender struts. My lady rides with me so I need the long fender now, But still running the stock jet size. I cleane dthe carbs all up and not a problem so far with backfire.

    Little update. Put a new 2 Gal tank on it, turn signals, found some old AMF HD stickers at a local garage I picked up for $5. Rebuilt the carbs and upgraded the jets and pilots. Made a huge difference, bikes mid-range power is a lot better now.

    Having issues with the bike, The bike bogged down when in 5th and then shut down completly. Battery is all good, plugs/wires all good. What could this be? Strator possibly?
