I.D.W.P. by Edwin
I think I just found my new favorite song…
I don’t wanna pickel
Just ride on my motor-cycle
And I don’t want a tickle
I’d rather ride on my motor-cycle
And I don’t wanna die
I just wanna ride on my motor-cy-cle
Confession: Most days I just want to pack a small duffle bag with a change of clothes and hit the open road.
The rest of my project parts have finally arrived today. I have an upgraded stator and regulator/rectifier unit from my friends over at Rick’s Motorsports, an Antigravity Battery, and a pair of K&N pod air filters.
This weekend I’ll be mocking up the platform that will hold the battery and electronics under neath the seat pan, and then after a nice powder coating, it will be all ready for final assembly.
I received a new battery from my friends over at Antigravity Batteries and it’s amazingly light. I was unsure whether to order the 4-cell or the 8-cell, so I called and they were incredibly friendly and helpful. Since I’m toying with the option of running an electric starter, they recommended going with the 8-cell…saying that while I’d probably be okay with the smaller unit, if it were him, he’d step to the next size up. It’s always better to have a little extra juice than not enough juice.
Here are the specs if you’re interested:
- 300 Pulse CA 240 CCA
- 9.7 Amp Hours (PbEq)
- 4.25” Long x 2.25” Wide x 3.75” Tall
- 1.7 lbs
- For street motorcycles up to 800cc
I’ll post an update on performance once I have it installed, though from the reviews I’ve read elsewhere, I don’t expect any problems.
My little brother snapped these while I stopped by Star City Motor Madness a few weeks ago.
I bought another pair of pipes and they arrived yesterday, but it doesn’t seem like these are going to work either. I’m being pretty picky because I have a certain vision in my head and this just doesn’t fit the bill…so it looks like I’m going to have Sean, down at Roc City, build up a new custom stainless steel exhaust system. Ton up son!
