      Yeah, he was that crazy German sergeant famous for killing Nazi officers.

          Thanks man!
          Not much to post right now. Been working on the wiring lately. Trying to thin it down to only basic necessities.

            Eliminating the kill switch, have a question. I'm thinking that to eliminate the kill switch I would leave the circuit open (NOT connect the two wires running to the kill switch). Is that correct? I believe that the kill switch acts as a ground if I'm not mistaken when the wires are connected. Can anyone confirm?

                I found a diagram for it. According to the diagram it looks like the two wires for the kill switch need to be connected (close the circuit). I will attempt that and see if it fires when I get to that point.

                  For the record, that worked.

                Just a quick mockup while I work on the wheel and try to finish up the wiring.

                  Fresh powder on the rear wheel. New bearings installed and the tire mounted. I managed to snap off the rear brakestay bolt inside the swingarm. That should be fun to get out.

                  I bought this motor on ebay, so I've never heard it run, this has kept me nervous awaiting the first fire. Additionally, I was in the zone when I was wrapping up the wiring. I already had all the wiring soldered, taped, wrapped, and tucked before I attempted to start it. Considering the amount of stuff I cut out and all the unknowns this could have been a disaster trying to figure out where I went wrong. Thankfully the engine turned over. It will run for a few seconds at a time, but it is starving for fuel - no surprise without an aircleaner and the pipes cut short.

                  Time to tinker with the jetting. Has anyone had any luck with jetting for minimal air cleaner and open pipes?

                      Thanks! I ordered it from ThrottleAddiction.com . It's not a simple bolt on job. I had to have a machinist do some work, also had to find different bearings to help with the conversion. Will also have to do a little notching on the frame. But it's worth it if you want a vintage style springer.
