Can't wait to see how that turns out I hope you have a slip joint in the exhaust to allow for packers

i made the exhaust spring mounted at the stub, but didnt put a slip joint as its not going to need the barrel moving up or down as ive already machined my packer plate to the required thickness to get the port timings where they need to be. i made a small bettery tray the other day, plus a bracket for the fuel tank, got my external pick up, thats my next job.

yes the kickstart seems fine, but i wont know for sure until i can jump on the kickstart and try to start it, its got some serious compression , its holding oil ok with no leaks.
