Man that looks like an absolute horrendous job. 2 Allen head screws, & one 12 or 14 bolt I can have my tank off in 5 min or less. And the Allen head screws can be optional depending how far "off" I need the tank lol......prepping mine for this riding season so far, new battery, plugs (4), drain & replace gas, lube & tighten chain all only took me 45 minutes....I bet you had that just in running/chasing the electrical wires. Oil is low miles, but I still change it for age, so I got that, make new plug wires, and intimating of all fork seals left to do......That brings her all the way back to highway condition, not that I'm not riding it anyways. My right pant leg just gets a little tube oil for good measure
lol......Still all the tastey mods, and want to's too, but keeping priorities real atm.....I need to add a longer distance bike to my stable, but watching you I think I'm gonna stay away from the venture :p
It's looking great tho, and I'm sure the progress feels awesome.......BUT, & I'm sure this goes for you too, we're all dying for d-day, when you stick that key in, turn it over, & fire it up.
