How much did those motor mount bolts cost you? 10 or 12mm?

Thanks Joe .

When installing the Nichols motor mount bolts, I was a bit surprised to see the amount of gap between the motor and frame when the I loosened the OEM bolt. I had expected a fairly tight interference fit between motor and frame. Instead, there was about a 1/16" gap. Not a big deal, in fact when considering manufacturing processes, I probably should be surprised that it wasn't bigger .

Following the Nichols instructions, the install went easily. I'm looking forward to see if I can feel any difference. Doubtful, but who knows?

Well, I finally turned the lights out at 12:01am, so I guess it still qualifies as "today". I put the spaghetti pipes and carbon cans on the SS. They look and sound pretty sporty.




And here's an absolutely terrible video clip;

Bastaad! I was so bummed when I saw that ad after the system sold.

Congrats! That is an awesome set-up. Sounds really, really cool!

Thanks, man. The seller was a great guy to meet. He's got more mind blowing projects going on right now than I think I've ever had a hand in. After I put them on, the wife came out to take a look. She said she could hear the bike from all the way inside the house (my workspaces in the shop away from the house). She approved

What brand of switch is that? Curious about those ones I've seen on eBay, but from your pic the quality looks real good.

I got that bar switch from Bike Sport Developments in the UK. They offer it in both 4 or 5 button style. They also offer a matching 2 button run/kill start switch.

The buttons come in your choice of colors and you can have the bar switch configured any way you like using either momentary or latching type switches.
You can also have the top of the switch housing custom engraved if you like.

The quality is exceptional but as everyone knows quality ain't cheap.

Here's the link. Click me.>>>Generic race bike
