    not sure what im messing up, sometimes the images emebed, sometimes they link

    anyways lets try those 4 again






    Honestly it kept me awake last night trying to figure out how to make the rear end look less bad.
    i was looking for universal plastic rear fenders, and cheap ones off wrecked bikes i could go and measure up.

    then i realised, ehh i already have a partly chopped up one, no loss in chopping it up more.
    After sitting on a crate and looking at it while drinking my coffee, and looking up other bikes. i came to the realisation that the fender just looks wrong. Its for a much wider tyre. So i measured my front fender (both wheels and tyres are now the same size) and it came out at 100mm wide. I think it looks pretty decent. So i measured the rear fender - 160mm wide.
    no bueno

    I figure a rear fender should be a little bigger than a front one, to give the bike some form of directional presence. So i decided to lop off 35mm from the middle of it (just happens to be 2 strips of masking tape). This gives 125mm width, and will be good if i want to go up a tyre width in the future.




    Honestly much better. Now the light isnt lost in the wide expanse

    Will weld it up today and figure out a underseat shield, as i already cut some out of this one to make an under seat storage area which was ok for a mk1 but needs more work, might make something out of the spare plastic engine shield i have left over from it

    Attachments not opening -- that's a nice tail light should be easy for other drivers to see it -- regular or LED bulbs ?

    The chopped fender width looks much better -- motorcycle license plates are big in NZ compared to those in Hawaii --

    Cool, this thing will go off the clock now. Very fun haha.

    Going to change the rear sprocket to a gn250 one (not that sprockets are hard to get, but it just happens to be cheap). So that will take it from 14-43 to 14-41.

    Would be good for a bit extra top speed, but mainly it will drop the bikes revs nicely to where it's on cam at 100kph. Should sit there comfortably now, will see how the lower speed stuff goes but I don't think it will bother the acceleration much. 1st gear is very low
