Default Re: Point Beach gets an EZM kit.

My clearance problem was mostly because of the SBP jackshaft mount. It cut into a lot of the space the airbox needs to hinge open. I cursed that thing many times when the carb I had at the time started acting up. It was impossible to get my wrench in there and remove the carb, and I was getting pretty mad by the 8th or 9th time I had to do it! I ended up replacing the carb and the airbox.

GearNut, notice on Scotto's bike his carrier rests on the seattube. My brother's does as well. Is your seattube too wide to let you do that?

Edit: also GearNut, don't be afraid to run an idler. With the Q-matic, the idler is not under anywhere near as much pressure as it is with a HT build.
It's never really stressed and will wear a very long time. My brother has never had an issue with his. He still runs a kit idler and it's 2 years old, still looks great.
