    I like it, does it add a bit of an air ride suspension as well or is the position pretty static?

    I have the same seat cover, it helps a lot in the summer :)

    If that were mine and I had to pay for repairs myself (no insurance to pick up the bill) I would get the fork legs and steering stem fixed/replaced and leave the exhaust as is.

    I bought one this summer and it is a pretty solid piece of kit. I had to modify the left rear mounting hole with a file but other than that it was just what I was looking for.

    I love these projects, and am one of the people that find the fuel range on these bikes to be frustratingly short (probably true of nearly all bikes ;) )

    It seems a bit odd to me that you are spilling on your seat when you have to tip up your pillion seat to get to the fuel tank. All the drips should be under the seat shouldn't they?

    Depends on your definition of "winterize" :p

    I got it into the tarp shed a couple days after that photo. It is absolutely shocking how poor the traction is with the Shinko 805 on packed snow.

    Yah it doesn't straiten out under it's own weight as some of the links are a bit sticky, but not frozen. If you give it a tug they straiten out, I figure it's probably OK for a sealed chain. I try to...

    If it were a car I would be giving the starter a smack with a 2x4 after ruling out the battery or leads. You've checked for corrosion on the terminals right?
