First time out today. Very short testride at local slow speed roads. Everything seems to work properly. Front fender bracets are under painting, so no fender.
I put larger main jets (105/108) because of larger header pipes, and also I advance ignition by 2 degrees. Don't know for sure, but I think it's better.
Pipe is getting yellow like some of you mentioned that stainless do that.

Shocks are in my country, so I should get them any day now.
I also purchased innovate afr meter, but this will take longer to install.
Decided to add some E-marked turnsignals, just in case.
Pics later when shocks also in place.

Shocks arrived today, also weather was great , so I went for test ride. Steering head bearing is loose and need to tighten. Everything else felt good. Now only afr gauge installation, and then it's done for this season.

Little turn signals are located side of the licence plate and head lamp, hard to see if not zoomed.
They are significantly brighter than led strip.

Big problems with front brakes, I was trying to make those chinese discs to work, there was too much thickness variation and I didn't know was that the problem or was it my adapter plates. I clocked adapters to 0.02mm and still shakes when braking. I also made "sanding" brake pads from plywood and sand paper, and I got then little better. Eventually I had to order new rotors, and that was right move. Now immediately all shakes are gone.

Also got afr gauge installed and working.

Next thing is mikuni rs38 flatslides, that I already have.

Brakes are working brilliantly and afr meter also seems to give correct readings. Now it's time to start flatslides project.
There was good unit in ebay auction starting from 500€. I was only bitter so they came to me.
Previous owner was painted top covers red, but it was totally wrong red, so I need to paint them.
Ordered DNA pods, and 2 new idle screws, because of tapering was damaged. Later i wil order different jets when i know witch way to go.

Carb sync.

Gauges are dampperd with liquid and controlled with hand valves, still very difficult because of mikuni's adjustment screws are hard to adjust, little movement makes big result and then you have to tighten stop screws, what obviously make some changes to result.

Test ride is next week, cos tomorrow I'm going to see legendary imatranajot, (street race where Agostini and other legendary fellas was used to race back at 70's)
