Default Re: First build in progress!

Ok, let's see...

About the black finish... So far so good. (probably only gone about 12 miles) I think they used like 3 different kinds of paint. The case and covers have one kind, the cylinder had maybe more high temp matte kind of finish, and the head was totally painted on both sides with more of a gloss.

The muffler has a couple spots where it's starting to bake a little, but that could be Fromm the fuel leak dripping on it. ( drained the tank tonight, and refit the fuel valve with gasket sealer )

I'm a little bit annoyed that my new speedometer is apparently metric, eventhough it says MPH on it. Not that I don't like the metric system, Im just not a big fan of kilometer
