I got the wiring about 70 percent finished, which was enough to start it for the first time.

 

 

Had to cut the bottom off of the air box to clear the new shock mount.

I also finished up some other odds and ends including the braided steel brake lines. Also did another body work fit up.

When I ran it with the modified airbox it ran very rich, so Ill need to do some rework there.  I did not think I reduced the volume that much, but I must have.

Its Been a While, Its tough to get motivated to work in the winter in an unheated shop, so all that gets done are emergency repairs.  

One of my winter projects was to build the 3D printer I won and learn to use it.  This lead me to buying a second bigger printer. I can now print 12 x 12 x 14 :-)

Anyway...  I needed new gauges for Problem Child since I was not using the fairings.

I really liked this inexpensive eBay unit:

Its compact and looked like it would be at home on the bike.  but I needed a way to mount it.  I was could make a steel bracket..  but why not design and print something.

So this was my first attempt at a dash/fairing:

It was too long, but I was on the right track.  

Round 2, the dog turned off the printer 27 hours into a 35 hour print...  Oh well, I had enough to at least check fit up of the mounting base and fairing to the headlight.

Thats Better!

For the Final, I moved the dash from the fairing to the base plate.  This lets me wire everything up and mount the gauge and the fairing becomes just a cover.

I still need to fill, sand and paint everything to finish it.

I only came here because you tagged this thread with the word "naked", and I HAD to see...
