    Not sure if you need them all- but I like em and all the lights and indicators work. You may need the odometer for registration purposes but who knows.

    I just used 1/2 flat stock and a vice and bent it down into a "z" shape. About a 3" drop overall. If you cut 5.5" and bend at 1" and 4" you're set. I did weld a brace between the two drop pieces.

    It's running again! I got her fired up this weekend and it's running pretty well. More tuning coming once the exhaust and filters are on.

    Updates: Finished dropping the gauges, painting frame and swingarm, primed the tank and added petcock fuel lines, new battery and a new taillight.

    For those of you doubting my clearance issues- here is a shot with the springs out and it bottomed out (using stock shocks). Upgraded shocks hopefully coming soon.





    The current state-





    I'm out of school next week and plan to fab up the intake, exhaust, seat and finish the tail section.

    Then all that's left is biting the bullet for $200 rearsets, or working up something custom.

    Lots of work has been done, the head has been rebuilt and reinstalled, tank is primed, and I fabbed a seat+ tail section and custom exhaust.
