    Yes that is a bought add on sump that bolts up to the bottom of the case.

    I have been looking at cutting it down in size/depth.

    I seem to remember somewhere in your build thread that you were addressing some undercarriage speed bump road rash due to low clearance. How are you going to address the additional thickness of an underslung deep sump?

    Yep.

    That is the problem. No real place for it to be.

    I do have it up a touch higher this time around and have not had any clearance problems at all this time.

    This sump would have to be cut down a lot.....if it would even work at all.

    This is just an idea out of my junk pile......thinking of something else in the wind cooling oil.

    I am gonna hafta get back interested in working on the thing.

    I had gotten serious about tuning and was doing some hard cranking on the throttle. I found a couple small problems and was making it somewhere. Then the first cooler started leaking. Once I got it back together from that.....I have done nothing but ride. It is reasonable close on basic tuning. I really need to do some colder weather tuning.

    Just have not been interested in a while.

    Sounds like you need a little inspiration:

    This is one of my favorites.

    Still have not worked on it any. Well I think I finished making that oil cooler a while back, but still not on there.

    Rode a little yesterday.

    The weatherman said that winter is scheduled for a day this upcoming week.

    Making a few small adjustments to the syncronization of the throats and the idle air valve.

    Then next is to get the billet oil cooler on there and the oil changed.

    Then more tuning......

    On a side note.....maybe this should be added into the tech thread.....but anyway....

    About the front end. By using the chopper builders handbook for a knowledge reference, plus some experience. This skinny tire works just fine. No head shake. Easy stearing, one hand driving. All this with less than an inch of trail. It even steered well in the rain. I have enough power I can push the front end around and the back end is crazy loose in the rain

    So bottom line.....you can make it work....just takes some geometry and a bit of math.

    Some pics I found on the internet......
