The paint job on your engine looks spectacular and everything else you've done so far looks equally as nice. I've been known to be a "little" anal at times, so I can really appreciate your attention to details. Keep the pictures coming!

Finished her up, with the new neutral switch, then installed the baggage and the "wife arrestor". Been riding her alot this weekend, feels great! I noticed a bit of afterburn and popping at idle, changed idle air jets back to #105 (instead of #98), this cleared this up, and still have decent off idle response. Everything functions flawlessly now. Away we go!

BTW. the spot on the driveway is from the original neutral switch leak. No leaks now!

Thanks everyone. Roger, I just looked at your frame photos, you've got quite a job ahead of you, God bless and good luck! I was quite fornunate as the rust on my frame was very superficial.

Wow awesome -- can you share the color code of the tank paint job?

Again -- looks real sweet.

Ultra fancy, extra clean, quite nice. Someone should build a showroom floor just for it.

Hey folks, just checked back, noticed I got BOTM. thank you so much for all your great comments on my work, and for selecting my bike for BOTM.

tallnwise: I kept the original paint, just had my auto body guy lightly sand and spot touch up some areas, then clear coat. He had the color matched thru a scan process, so sorry, I do not have a code. But I have seen them listed somewhere....
