Yeah ok, small report
got this thing fired up, hooked up all the cables, and ran it for awhile wishing i had a chain for it, d'oh!
starts good, runs good on choke but its real lean without the airbox. Mine has a 100 jet. Kinda torn between just slapping an air filter on there and rocking it with a bigger jet or holding out to find the proper airbox git.
so yeah, all the lights work with no battery. headlight, high/low beams, brake, tail.
I don't have any turn signals, not sure if i'm gonna put tiny china crotch rocket ones on it (LED's might not work on 6v) or just leave them off.
uh what else. slight water leak at the head gasket. i got it real clean and torqued to spec so it might be warped or the Athena gasket is a piece of crap or both.
since its a composite gasket you cant re-use it, so i'm stuck with it leaking unless i buy a new one.
the oem is MLS, so i might invest in one of those and use the copper spray shit on it. Maybe i'll port the cylinder depending on how she runs out, maybe i'll fall in love and go crazy with a TM24, malossi reeds, and a hack-and-welded kx65 pipe.
