hours and hours and hours have i spend on the manifolds for the XR883 evo build... the front one had been giving me headaches and clearance issues each and every time..
now the front one is actually how i didn't really want it.. but i have enough leg clearance and that was paramount to me.. so.. now i have one carb pointing forward and one sticking backward.. but like this it will stay!
on a lighter note.. i tried another tank... i really like the lines and flow.. but if i want it to work i have to make a new tunnel and make a new side panel to make room for the carb..
at first i thought.. fuck it.. i will just go with the sportster tank.. but more and more the tank is pulling on me, and i guess i have some tank cutting and welding in the near future for me..
ow.. some of you might have guessed where the tank is from.. it's the gas tank of one of the XS Bro's (the yammy XS400's i got my hands on recently) and if i nick the tank of one bro, i guess i can steel the big round headlight of the other!
also i made up my mind about the oiltank and exhaust route.
the oiltank will stay stock at the stock location and the exhaust will not be in the tail section. the tail will house the battery and some storage room.
there... mind made up!
......but my mind chances almost as often as the weather out here....
