Looks awesome!  Really like the 400 tank on it.  Congrats on finally getting it buttoned up!

Now, wheelie shots :armscrossed: :clint:.

Thanks, I still need to find a way to hold the rear of the tank down, zip ties. then wheelies  :rock:

What kind of headlight and bucket are you running on that awesome bike?

Thanks Killer, the set up on the tail light is easy. No speical tools or skills needed. Be careful bending the light bar to extremes though, I bent mine too much and the stop light flickers on and off. I fixed it by putting a shunt between the lightbar and seat to space it out and give it some room. I used clear automotive gasket/epoxy and some C clamps to press the lightbar into the seat.

As for the headlight bucket, it came off an rd400 I think, I'll get the part number off the bucket when I get home later. The lightbulb is a Sealed Beam Light from....  :umm: I'll have to look as well. Sorry :/

That's enough headlight info for me, it looks bigger in the picture.  I really like the overall look of your bike!
