Default Re: This Looks Like Fun

Thanks for the welcome! I want to get this thing on the road as soon as possible, (let the tweaking begin!) so do you all have any suggestions on things I can get/prepare for when the motor shows up weds? Any "ground zero" standard mods that I can include in the initial bolt-together stage to save time?

Of particular interest are muffler quieting procedures... I want to be as quiet as I can. I've heard that wrapping the muffler with heat tape, then winding wire on it to retain the tape will stop the metal from 'ringing...' anybody tried that before?

Also, should I plan on fabricating some motor mounts myself? (vibration reduction) or do the stock ones typically do the job... how solidly do I want the motor attached to the frame?
