Rob,

I took it to St. Helen this past weekend to do a small shakedown run. Everything went great! Having locked axles is awesome, such a huge difference! It even drove 60mph down the road as straight as could be. I didn't really push it very hard since we have the Silver Lake trip coming up.

I am going to take some more pics tonight of the final setup since this thread is really lacking some pictures.

Just for the record I didn't make it I popped a bead about halfway up. Gonna have to look into some beadlocks. The tube shot is just a poser shot.

The only thing I can think of is maybe yours had a bigger reservoir? Like I said mine just touches but does not interfere with the hood closing. Here are some more build pictures including the MC.


Front shaft by Tom Woods it is their long travel shaft the slip is built into the shaft it self. It also reversed from stock.

I feel your pain! Right now I am wishing I would have taken steps to run a 15" wheel vs. the 16.5".
