1st start went great

Found out the carb is sitting at a bit off angle resulting in the bellow and air filter not having enough space when panel is fitted.... Landon says that can be modified no problem. Going to take scoot to him in 2 weeks to fab up a custom reed block to carb adapter. I'll use car radiator hose like I use on other scoots. Last way longer than the rubber the shops try to sell us.

after thats done....
- EGT probe welded on
- leg shield glove box mounted and then removed to be powder coated
- 100/90x10's race tires mounted up
- send Casa flywheel to HotrodAl to be lightened up to about 1500 grams
- double check ignition timing
- change location where junction box is mounted to allow rear shock to be mounted in correct orientation

then carb setting up before Mayday 2016

summer 2016...
- front fork rebuild / paint / upgrade to disk brakes full hydraulic anti dive with the help of my go fast guru Guido W


onwards
some times sideways
mostly forwards
