The SBP hose material is what I'm using now, but it's on the thin side. Fine for a temp fix. What I'm getting is a 10' length of 1/2" round solid silicone so I can get it thick enough to clear the clutch ring.

It's got grip and held up on a 20 minute ride in 90+ temps. Squeaks a bit when pedaling with the clutch in though - but that's going to be fine tuning in height.

I let a friend ride it so I could hear how loud/ quiet it is now after making the crossover exhaust and modding an air compressor's air filter to fit. I wanted to hear it from a spectator's point of view as the bike went by.
He crashed. The bike slid out from underneath him as he was taking a corner that had a bit of sand in the road. I must say that he did a great job trying to save the bike. Both his knees took a beating though. He was wearing cut off pants and got some good raspberries on both knees. I could care less about the bike, I was concerned about him. He could care less about his bloody knees, he was apologetic and worried about the bike. My wife nursed his knees while I drained the fuel tank which was leaking pretty fast. I thanked him for trying to save the bike, but told him to save himself next time, no matter what he was riding.

The muffler got a teeny patch of scratches, the right grip got a bit of road rash, and the petcock got spun around (how on earth that happened, I don't know) and stripped the threads off of it.

I found out that a spare original Hodaka Ace100 valve that I had lying around was a perfect match, so on it went.
I'll re-install the tank tomorrow.
