no my friends, it don't live yet.. I gotta make up 2 battery cables , build a starter rear support & get a new ignition module/coil set .. I had cannibalized the ignition system when the one in the evo. fried .. new one is on the way & damned if I didn't fry another one .. seems a domed iggy cover is a must , even with the spacing I used its shorting out on the iggy cover.. even after fire up , i'll need to get the kick stand & starter support powdered .. & the exhaust ceramic coated.. still needs one more tig weld pass on the pipes.. the welded took it upon himself to have the brilliant idea of migging the filler pass on the pipes & then hit that trash with a regular grinder blade instead of a tiger disk.. last time i'll trustingly leave a set of pipes for a welder to do a sinple task on .. it aint like he isn't capable , he rides a late model softy, but is a non-knower in building a bike.. still the instructions as well as the task was simple.. without being rude , people need to learn to listen .. I do things a certain way for a reason.. now a simple thing has become complicated .. needless to say I'm a lil' pissed about the pipes.. but I will overcome.. for now repairing the evo. takes priority.. & i'll order another iggy/coil set.. like I'm made out of money for this shit.. BUT .. ONWARD THRU THE FOG ..

I was actually thinking about to Preacher when I posted that. 'Hadn't seen him on here in a month!  :o

thank you guys .. your words carry much weight with me..

I been taking short rides off & on all day.. in between my other chores.. the WOW factor I'm getting from both young & old is too cool .. been trying to do cycle runs, letting it heat up & cool down.. it starts so very easily , purrs like a big cat , handles great , & the bdl drive & ball bearing lock up clutch is ssoooo smooth .. eases off from a dead stop so easily , the shift pattern is so tight & close .. hitting neutral from a dead stop or rolling either one is a breeze.. nothing like a stock shovel clutch set up , even one that's heavily modified to be smoother.. its more like shifting a new twinkie.. maybe even better..

the drives pulley tooth count is set up to help with the searching for an extra gear we all do with 4 speed trannies.. I was wondering how it would jive with the 5 in a 4 tranny I'm running.. at the last moment I swithed from a 24 tooth tranny sprocket to a 23 tooth , due to the tooth count on the pulley's .. with a 49 tooth rear sprocket , the 23 seems the best choice .. I think the 24 woulda been too tall .. the final drive ratio in 5 th. gear feels really good..
