    LDNCLR are you going to weld the rod straight to the pipe or use some sort of rubber mount? I am now going to steal your version of a horizontal bar instead of the vertical style i have used before that always breaks. I think I'm just going to weld the rod to the pipe though, that will keep very stout and in harmony with the motor vibrations. Mine is just 2.5" SST with a turnout at the rear pegs, couple small baffles, really lightweight.

    @ercle69, I worked on it a bit today. I'm definitely making the mount and pipe bolt together, as having them per mantle welded would make installing/removing the pipe a total pain in the ass.
    I ll snap a few pics next time I'm out in the shop....

    Yeah I've been thinking about that quite a bit too, that would make installation awkward. let me see what you come up with!

    Ive' gotta ask this because its the one thing I majorly hate when I need to quickly take the tank off. I bought a set of http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/...-LWxoCEmzw_wcB and they don't really work well because of the angle of the barbs coming off the tank. They fit under the backbone but the line is really short and they are hard to pull apart and put together without spilling gas anyways. I want to try and make this bike as easy to service at anytime and things like having to drain the gas tank is stupid, especially if you're out of the road for some reason and something happens. What does everyone do for their tank cross over? Anyone else have an effective system they use to quick disconnect?

    i used them by a brand named Tusk on my rd350 2-stroke, had a crossover tube connecting the tank halves... worked fucking great.they might have a 90 degree barb? not sure I would look into it if i were you, a lot cheaper through them also.

    I see you have relocated your oil tank behind the transmission did you reuse the stock tank or use something else ? I have heard rumors of using a modified bagger trans to avoid cutting the frame

    I bought a 1997 bagger trans and primary setup to replace my tired '88 stocker while ditching that silly oil bag, and am fine with cutting the frame and making the new brace removable as some have done. It's a fairly common mod and the fab is minimal.

    I'll still run an Evo but there's no reason to be bothered about such a simple mod if it's done properly. Another bonus is the ability to use plentiful TC drivetrains in the future if wanted. Lots of customer takeouts floating around that can be had cheaper than an Evo rebuild, and if you get another Evo you can swap back if that's your thing.

    LDNCLRs exhaust work is sweet.

    Oh yeah, I'll be using a Twinkie when me Evo gets tired. Is 1997 roughly the better age range I should be looking for? Does the swingarm from that year work as well?

    This is an evo.... Not a twink. I used a evo era bagger trans and modified the oil pan to fir without cutting the frame.
    Thanks guys for the exhaust compliments. It came out better than I had hoped.

    Farmal, you might weigh the options of cutting the oil pan verses modding the frame. Modding the frame will require a new solution for the right side foot peg mount as well as a new kick stand.

    I felt the oil pan mod was much less work.

    Well done. The rocker box covers threw me off. S&S ? How long did it take you to cut and fab up the notch in the oil pan?

    and of course it all comes apart again for final assembly







    and finished up after i upgraded all of the shift mechanism to the later twin cam 5 speed internals



    and a filler panel for under the seat to cover the old oil tank location. now my tool bag can go under the seat.



    if any one wants to see more of this build process, let me know, and Ill start my own thread. this one can get back to normal FXR stuff.

    Here's mine. 14k miles, was bone stock when I got it, which was about 1 month ago. Mocking the thunderheader up in this pic so I don't have the mids attached. Have since removed the sissy back rest. Am replacing the butterfly carb with a cv. I managed to find a TH cone and will be welding that back on. Click image for larger version.
