    Update, cleaned carbs and fitted them to modded airbox. Added fuel lines also.

    Removed that pin and welded it. Now it is same as sxviper cover.

    And what do you guys think about modding that water rail? I want to make it fit straight to viper coolant system. I think that if i cut everything marked on red and then i weld connector straight to side. I may have to use new L-shaped cooland hose, but then i can use just one hose. Hope u understand what i mean

    Yea. It looks like Permatex RTV grey. Nothing wrong w/ that procedure. I use removable silicone sealant on most all "joints" between the carbs and fresh air.

    that what I thought especially after this week when I removed my air box in my viper and noticed that it was not really sealed compared to my vmax that have clamps with screws.

    I thought about asking a question about that but I have my answer now!!!! will do the same when putting it back.

    On the thermostat "cover", you could cut the outlet, rotate it to your desired position and then re-weld.

    Just clean the surfaces w/ Naptha. I even put a bead around my boost bottle ports before they get pressed into position and pressure clamped.

    That grey stuff is just normal silicone sealant, maybe i should clean it little.

    Weather started to get cold so i have to start my triple, it is pretty low when shocks out of air seasonfirststart.jpg

    Made new brackets for bigbore motor, also changed rear bracket because it was broken.

    Changed new cylinder and piston for hauck 780 and modded water rail. Water rail looks awful, it was really hard to weld. Especially it was my second time to try aluminium welding

    I also started to mod those ruined bigbore pipes, but i flanges won't fit stock cylinders... Have to assemble bb motor and then i can mod those pipes.
