    Hey Jacob, great write up and pictures thank you for sharing,
    Had a question about the Lepera seat;
    Can the back be lowered a bit or does it have to be up like that,
    Is it a fiberglass or metal pan?
    Thanks

    Looks awesome, I absolutely love that seat.
    The tank is a little far back for my tastes but thats just my opinion. Looks killer man!

    Maybe I misunderstood the question. Lost in translation)))
    The seat could be a bit of a stretch-straighten.
    Metal.

    Help.
    The difference between the photos is only half of the turnover of the clutch basket. Stretch the same.
    Why so can be?

    Tank fits the style your afte . The Japanese style bikes typically mount the tanks far back on the backbone like he has it. Looks spot on ,to me.this isn't the Frisco style everyone is building on this site .

    I'd say the Transmission is not aligned properly, you might have to shim it.

    I would shim the bracket between your engine and tranny...with it being over top of your bearing support it is probably putting stress on your alignment. On mine I shaved the bearing support a bit and shimmed the front mount

    Do you know what shock studs you have on the round swing arm that you can fit 1/2" shock bushings?
