Nah, I put a windshield on my motorized bike. I cut the handlebar clamps off of two brake levers. Then I used the clamps to bolt on the windshield. The bolt was long enough, so I attached my tach bracket to it.
When I used large exhaust tubing to seal the Tanaka pipe's flanges, it REALLY quieted down the engine. It also stopped the oil leak at the resonator-to-OEM muffler. Installing the tubing also shifted the engine, so I'm having a swell time installing the engine drive chain. No 8mm half-links, so it's either too short or too long. One engine mounting bolt snapped, and the stores are closed.
Hopefully, I can ride to work tomorrow, so I'll be up tonight fighting this MB.
