Thank you for comments

Changed the primary gasket today.
The old gasket was really bad, and it leaked alot



New gasket on


Filled with this oil after tightening.
No more leaks from primary now

Is it possible to mount forward controls with the Supertrapp exhaust?
Read that it would be trouble

Some changes since last time.

Tried on another seat,


But I didnt like it, so I put the old one back on


Then I found a LePera seat, and it looked much better

Looking good! I have a LePera Silhouette on my 95 and love the look.

Nice find. If you check the spark plug side of the heads and you see that they are designated "Super Stock" heads, then you probably have had the S&S "74XLSS" kit installed. If so , that package included a specific manifold, 10.5/1 pistons matched to the heads, the Super E carb/air cleaner, adjustable pushrods, travel limiters, and an Andrews N6 cam (S&S 500). If you find out that's the heads you have, I can post a link that will give you more info on them. (They should dyno into the high 80's HP with a good exhaust like you have. Mine is running high 90's with a Woods cam).
