    Eventually, yes. I have other things in store that will eliminate it.

    Got the new subframe mounted.





    It looks amazing. It sits taller. I'm gonna do rear-sets similar to Mik.

    You can see I re-used the upper mount holes for the stock peg arms, as the lower mounts for the XB subframe, perfect spacing.

    My buddy had a broken hammock at his place, we took one of the tubes and brought it back to my place. Cut it to length, welded a nut in each end, then welded it to the top of the shock mount. Bolts in nicely.

    I never drained the oil from the backbone, lol.

    All the bolts came from my collection of bolts from disassembling my rotary engines.

    That'll work really well with your higher seat. If you were around the corner I'd give you the steel I have left over from my rearsets.

    Looks badass btw.

    I say custom cause even though I have an XB intake cam, I'm running a pre-XB 4E on the exhaust side. It increases my lobe seperation angle by a couple/few degrees.

    I swap my cams every week it seems.
