VOES connected





Green lite says "Much VOES, Very Success"



Still need to adjust the timing, but the bike fired right up, no choke, and its in the high 50's here...

on a side note, i now have Tach, and warning lights...
all in all much progress.

I would grind that down flush inside of the intake to eliminate turbulence, or just pull it out and shorten it until it sits below flush. Loosing some of the other sharp edges in there wouldn't hurt either.

Ultimately, that is the plan.

I left it as is for now, because i needed to verify it sealed up ok with the white thread sealer...

if i need to add an oring, or something along those lines, the orientation will change, which would be no bueno, if it's already filed down to match the internal angles.
