    thanks for the links. while there is some useful info, i'm looking for a technical forum, preferrably one where i'm not one of only 7 members. anybody else got any links? i want the CK5 of the motorcycle world.

    you rebuilding the engine?
    with all the race engines you have done, a little motorcycle engine should be no problem

    actually, i think it needs some trans work, or a new trans altogether. i'd also like to modify it a little. ie drag bars, a round headlight, and some round gauges. just dont like the stock look, its too boxy, but i've been told it will be a great beginner/commuter bike.
