Looking good Craig. What are you running for a 12 volt battery?

CraigArizona85248

I run a generic brand AGM battery that cross references with YUASA YTZ-14S.

I'm getting really close to finishing up. Rear fender, rear wheel, sissy bar, primary cover, ignition wiring, top motor mount, headlight, and passenger pegs have all been installed.

Just need to install the gas tank and add fluids and it should be a wrap.

Wrapped it up over the weekend. Added fluids. Need a good day so I can take it for a quick shakedown ride.

One more change today. I have a repop j-slot air cleaner baking plate that I cut up and mounted to a CV40 backing plate. The j-slot air cleaner is what came on a 1949 Panhead and is a lot smaller than the S&S air cleaner I've been running. It doesn't cover up the motor as much.

I like the look of those air breathers.

I had an antique plate in Arizona. It was made of solid copper. I'm not sure if Nevada has a antique plate for motorcycles. Even if they do, the DMV here is such a pain in the ass it's not worth the trouble.

After the 23 day tear down, inspection, and reassembly process, I started my old chopper this morning. It was a little stubborn since the temperature was 19F (-8C). It took 6 kicks to light. The flywheels felt like they were stuck in molasses. 60W oil is pretty thick when it's this cold. After it starts I closed the enricher and blip the throttle a couple times. You can see the motor expel unburned fuel and then it settles into a nice clean idle. It was a cold shakedown ride, but so worth it! This cheered me up today 😁

No sound during the portion of the video that I sped up. I didn't think you'd want to watch a 3+ minute long video.
