Hey all
Is this still on ? I would love to make it if it is. I will be coming from the Lakes Region and would love to meet up with others on the way. Cheers, Tony
I plan to head up on Friday (maybe Thursday) Will be a long day as the plan is all secondary roads.

Build your own. More fun.

Try 1/8" NPT plastic fittings. Yeah.... it's a cross thread but it works and holds well.
I like it :)

Re: Adding an Electric Starter to MT-16

I think it would be possible to fabricate a lever, possibly using 3/4” pipe, with a hook or fixture of sorts one end that would engage with the kickstart lever and allow you to start it by hand. I like the way you think Jay. Might even be able to fabricate something out of wood? My Ural engine kick...

Nice, the van will be long rusted away but the hitch will live forever. :)

Re: A couple of possibly stupid questios from a newcomer

First off, welcome from Maine. :beerchug:
Few pictures of your fig would be nice.
My two cents, set the idle once the bikes warmed up and the FD should be warm.
