Nope. Too busy with work, other projects, work, friends projects, work, and riding the KTM.

Only about 80 miles on the freshly rebuilt forks too. :( brand new chain and sprockets never even out of the package too.

Hey man I saw you need filters. I JUST got a set of brand new never used pods for I THINK, 38mm carbs. I can send one to you to check fitment or whatever. May just give you the whole set to use if youre running pods. they were given to me on the forum and the flatslides Im getting should already have pods. Might need them for the GSX1100G but I'm hoping to run an airbox on that one instead. PM me if you're interested.

Thanks for the offer! What's the length of the pods? Figure it's easier to measure then it is to ship parts and test fit.

I have plans to do that but this frame wouldn't make that a easy task. For another build.

That's how it's going to look but everything will be raised up about 8" and there will be some usd forks.

I have plans drawn up for a forkless front and sssa rear but its based around a inline twin. There are still some kinks I need to work out before I get started though.

Chrome wouldn't fit with the bike because the frame won't stay polished but I kinda want to keep it chrome so I can make the pipes turn blue. It would drive me nuts though with that being the only chrome part.

I like the extra ground clearance I would have with the sidewinder when it comes to going over curbs and loading/unloading with trailers and trucks. I also like the wow factor from people but I was looking at it more and I think the oil pan issue would be a really simple fix to make the 4-1 work and the sidewinder might affect corning because the one outside tube goes so far forward before it curves back. Not sure.

Sidewinder is the sexiest exhaust i've ever seen! For real for real...

And damn dude you make that thing look like a pit bike in you last round of pics! :)

Bike is looking great though!

Sure with dirt bars I'll be more upright and probably a little more comfortable but the problem is I'll be more upright. I wasn't planning on putting a fairing on this bike so it's gonna suck riding it out to IN for another MWFF. My body and helmet is going to be like a huge parachute. Even on the Triumph when I would be doing ~120 and sit up to slow down faster it was like throwing out a anchor. And the Triumph has the full fairing. I also worry dirt bars might awkward when I lay on the tank. Then again it's annoying when my knees and elbows hit when I lay on the tank with clipons.

I need to stop building little bikes. :doh:

I couldn't full tuck on the kat with out hitting my knees until i put on the dirt bars. A super bike low bar or a low CR bend would be perfect. I prefer them wide with mid controls few inches narrower with rear sets. Drag bars are for cruisers. To me they almost feel like clipons
