    Right now the carb has stock jetting. The exhaust is aftermarket. I was thinking that without the air filter it will pop and bang.
    I would not be able to adjust it.

            Today Monday June17th, 2019 I started the motorcycle up! It took some fiddling around before it started to run right.
            At first it sounded like it was running on one cylinder. I turned the pilot air screw out more and then it straightened up and started to run better. I added two more Qts. of oil to the oil tank.
            I am letting it cool down now. I will start it again with the air filter on and make final adjustments to the idle.
            I am waiting for the air filter bottom bracket and bolts which are supposed to arrive today in the mail.
            So the whole build took one year and 15 days approximately.

              Very nice. Like to know how it runs/drives without the under drive. Oh, you probably corrected with the rear sprocket I imagine.

                So, the belt turns slower than the engine RPM? Hmmm, I am having trouble wrapping my brain around this. Input is 1500rpm out put is 1000rpm?

              Great Build off

              really like that you gave your Seat a little Makeover.
              Also the chaindrive makes it really thin.

                    Electrical issue solved.
                    I am waiting for some 10" baffles from KromeWX (England) that they say have no back pressure but lower the noise level.

                  I am putting a trailer together to take the bike to the MVD which is miles away from here.
                  It is a kit trailer from Northern tool.
                  You have to make an appointment so I do not want anything to go wrong.
                  With a trailer I can avoid going to the MVD in this 100 degree plus weather.
                  I will be in a air-conditioned van and arrive on time in comfort.

                    Not only does your bike look cool, but it looks like a fun ride as well. Good job Lucky.
                    Your inspiring me to get out the tools!

                    I had planned to take my black diamond build the the DMV tomorrow (August 16th) to get it registered but the trailer that I got for it would not work. When the bike is on the trailer and strapped down it would lean left or right about 30 degrees!
                    It tilted the hitch on the the ball too. It would be too dangerous to go on the road!!! Not kidding. The rating was for 750lbs.
                    and my bike is only about 500lbs. The trailer will have to be re constructed completely! Do NOT Buy ONE of these trailers!! The name was Ultra-Tow Single rail Folding motorcycle trailer 700lb. Capacity.

                    I have rescheduled the DMV registration for Sept. 10th. I think I will just get a permit to ride it there.

                      Maybe by September it'll cool down a little.

                    Yes that would be helpful.

                    I am writing a email to the Consumer Products Safety Commission so that the trailer cannot be sold anymore.

                      I have purchased a new utility trailer to use for the motorcycle and other things.
