So I got the lights fixed! Turns out the motor was not grounding to the frame. Fixed it for now with an alligator clip lol
I rode it home from the garage (it's like 6 or 7 blocks) and it did pretty well; didn't go over 260*. Top end is a little noisy as I expected but I think it'll bee ok.
The pipe provides nothing to the motor and it just acts like the stock top end with more torque and power. I think it still a bit rich and I'll tinker with the jetting a bit. I think I put a 72 in it. I'm excited to have this bike be reasonable to ride in rush hour traffic.
