thanks for the comments guys...

They say a build is never finished… in some ways true! I am still finding little jobs to do like making some frame bungs as none came with the bike…

on another note...  what should I set my rev limiter too on my ignitech unit?

I've heard 20 ga shotgun shells make good frame plugs.

9000 RPM is standard rev limit.
But you can choose lower, doesn't happen much after 7500 with those inlets and carbs.

Agreed. Bruce Meyers always said after 8K on a big valve 900 all you were doing was making noise.

I was looking at the picture of the bike the other day and thought” those silencers are too long”… and its too quiet… Well I had the original silencers which were quite marked, So I looked at shortening them and removing part of the baffle… not a bad job… by removing the bracket I was able to slide the sleeve down enough to remove the end with a cutting disc. I then cut 100mm off the inner and sleeve (both ends to preserve the stampings) , and welded it all back up again. One thing I learned many years ago when welding exhausts is to clean the carbon off the inside… or it leaches through the weld and the joint cracks! They polish up really well…you just have to remove the original finish with a DA sander with some 120 grit, followed by some 400, then polish…

well my builds have come to an end for this year...  and one bike must go to make way for a new project which I will hopefully  start next winter.  Not sure what it will be yet... time to think, and find something suitable...
