You pick a paint scheme yet?
I've been thinking silver on black rims maybe. I've changed my mind on it a dozen times, I really cant decide.
As far as tuning, I changed out the 38mm carb in exhange for a 26mm, Which seemed to match the intake better, and was slightly larger than the stock carb. The 38 was just too big I think.
It runs tons better, It actually idles down, it will idle down to almost nothing and I can actually adjust this one, and see results.
Adjusting the bigger one seemed to have no effect on it, it either ran or it didn't.
The smaller carb also allowed me to mount it back up under the tank, which also allowed me to use a much shorter intake adapter, 2-3" long instead of 6-7"
Overall the new carb just works out better, it even has a stiffer throttle spring in it.
I have bought some different sized sprockets for my jackshaft, to experiment with my acceleration\top speed ratio.
I have been making progress, just slow lately, No time during the week, then I usually have stuff to do over the weekend and it keeps getting pushed off.
Also Progress has slowed since it has been ridable.
Got some switches and such ordered to get started on the wiring, but still unsure what to do about hand controls. I know what I want to do but its somewhat expensive. 12$ per push button and 4-5$ for every latching relay, and I have 4 or 5 things I want to use those switches and relays with.
