Default Re: engine hardware question-first build

I had problems with my gas tank cracking at the welds so I put kreem tank liner in it and jb welded around the mounts. I just got a new one and did this to the new one before using it. I also have rubber gaskets between the tank and my mounts. Buy as many upgrades as possible from sick bike parts. Spark plug and wire. Head gasket. Fuel filter petcock ect. I needed to tighten all of my spokes after just a few miles so you may want to keep a close eye on those. Thread lock your bolts and nuts. Use anti sease on your plug and I use thorn resistant tubes. They are 3 times thicker and get road tires for a smooth ride. Get a good light if riding at night. Regular ones are hard to see far with. Especially if you are going fast. I just mounted a wheel generator light kit and have not tested it at night yet but it seems bright. Good luck with your build and keep the questions coming.
