Thanks you Steve! I'm happy with the way it turned out. I would like to change the outlets but for now I would like to ride the old girl for a while. The project took way too long... but I finally got a 6 into 6 for my X!

You really did a beautiful job - including that flyscreen.

New outlets will take it to another level.

Do you mean you removed the carbs, or does the exhaust have to come off for this procedure?

Either way, very glad to hear that you're happy with how it's running!

Yes Phil, I had to remove the exhaust, tip the motor forward so the tops of the carb caps would clear the frame. Thanks Wyly!!-Mike

You didn't have to do all that - the carb tops will come off with the carbs and engine intact.
