    I made a little progress. I picked up 6 b8es plugs, installed one and gave this beauty a leak test. 7lbs, 5 minutes, zero loss. Perfect!

    I modified a new stator cover w/ ss hw to accept the KOR case saver. Installed the front sprocket, tossed the chain around it just to take a peek. 13 tooth Sunstar sprocket, DID 520 x-ring chain

    Installed a new pump cover with stainless hardware. Installed the kick starter.

    I also received my new front calipers so I threw the front wheel assemblies together. New OEM guards and brakes, DP rotors. 21" Razer 2s.

    Unfortunately, we had an emergency come up and have to go out of state for a couple weeks. It may be a few weeks before I can make some progress. Once I do I will make an update.

    Unfortunately not. It's been hard times and we just haven't had the money to keep going on it yet.

    I'm glad you popped your head in here though, I had a question for you. That wire harness you purchased. Where did it come from? I'd like to commission them to make me one as well.

    I have another carb question for you experts.

    It was recommended to order a 34 pj or a 35 pwk with a #6 slide. I am looking at the tech specs on the Keihin website, http://www.keihin-na.com/aftermarket/pwk/, and it seems the standard 35pwk comes with a #6 slide.

    I was looking to buy the Air Stryker version, which shows it comes with a #4.5 slide.

    Would I still want to ask for a #6 slide, or did they change to a #4.5 due to other variances in this carb?

    You still want a #6 slide. It's the one that's proven to work with our blaster.

    The only difference that I know of between the PWK's and the Air Strykers is the pwk has 2 vents, the air Stryker has 4. Might be something else, but I'm not aware of it.

    I ran a PJ on my for awhile, it wasn't a bad carb, I just never cared for it.
