Jerry's Warrior Project
Wrapped the exhaust with some header wrap to keep
the heat away from the air box. Tank installed to test fire and tune
Exhaust spaced away from air box as far as
possible. Test fired and adjusted the carb and it worked great. Now
ready for assembly.
Fenders and frame were pretty dirty so they got a
thorough hand scrubbing before reassembly.
Silencer re-packed and header wrap painted with
the recommended silicone coating to help hold it in place and
protect it.. RH photo shows the bent steering stem.
Another view from further back. RH photo shows a
frame a guy gave me for parts to replace my bent steering stem.
Bottom mount on the stems were different so had to
machine a bushing to make it work. After installing the bushing,
everything bolted up and was straight again.
Moving the exhaust over gained clearance for the
air box but then it hit the fender. Trimmed the fender for clearance
then got the new battery installed.
