    Having a shocking run lately. 

    Had another order come with my chain stuff and my new Mikuni HSR45 kit.

    The mikuni manifold is fucked out of the box, where the intake seals sit has been machined through to the inside, its paper thin. Need a new one.

    Did some work with a laser to figure out what size sprocket spacer I need for this setup, got it all setup, and the chain 1 link too short.. Thought it mightve been because of my decently big rear sprocket. No, its because its 110 links instead of 120 links like it should be.

    Next on the list is brake lines I think.

    I'm starting to think your Dyna build is made to have strippers ride around on the back. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Hey, where are getting that foam from?  Trying to foam out my king queen seat but it’s a bloody struggle to find the right grades.  It’s a bit of a dogs breakfast of OEM rubber and foam floor mats atm.

    FXR*, but that was old mates first crack at shaping. He came round and we sat it on the bike and scoped it out, decided where to take material etc off, so that pillion section will be slimmed down and angled a bit. 

    Will def have a pillion seat though, the single seat pans look a  bit wack to me.

    More picture dumps!

    Seat came out mint, could not have asked for a better job especially for the price.
    Next up is how the manifold arrived in my brand new Mikuni kit.... Pretty fuckin shit if you ask me. Makes me wonder how thin that area is even when its machined properly..
    Last up is the latest issue encountered with the twin cam swap last night. As you can, the lower oil line and the brake pedal (not my handy work on the grinding btw, was already like that haha) want to be in the same spot... Which I kind of expected, so currently working on an elegant solution, which I think I've sorted out in my mind.
