    I've never been one to leave anything stock, no fun in that. Great job on your carb setup. Among other things, I stripped the chopper down and repainted it in my garage. After that I got hit on the head and went off the deep end. I fabricated and painted an entire rear clip with bags for it so I have easy, lockable storage when I need it. It comes off with 3 bolts on each side and a stock type plug, I can switch back to my chopper fender in about 15-20 mins. Not for everyone but if fits my needs until I eventually get a second bike. I know how much Dent loves baggers!

    Also ground down the raised areas of a stock air cleaner and painted it to match the bike, but wasn't a fan so it's on the shelf for now.

    Thanks :oldthumbsup:, I know your stance on bags :oldbang:, I was always the same way till I realized how convenient they are. Some times you need function over form, not often, but sometimes.

    Finally I installed my oil pressure gauge and figured I’d get some polishing done. Engine polishing sucks, wish it was chrome. 3B84BA55-1759-4D8E-961D-45600AAF9D74.jpeg

    Thanks, I may need to move it forward or fabricate a different set up. Hate to remove it but not liking how it feels when I sit on the bike, really won’t know until after the next ride.

    Does your leg hit it?
    Can you move it up into the front and middle holes?

    One thing always lead's to another, Bite the bullet ride it the way it is for now and save up for a new Intake, move it forward all good you know it's inevitable. You will end up getting a intake. Start doing all the honey do's now. lol
