    Default Harddrv1 bobber build

    Yeah Hello all been awhile since I was here, winters are long and harsh here in Alberta so havenít done much on my bike since last here. I hate to double post but my last thread was more about an idea to restore my bike via 3D printing here https://www.venturerider.org/forum/s...82#post1045382. Anyway that idea hasnít panned out well and now I canít even get my printer going so I decided to go another route. Itís been a slow process as I am still learning a lot but I hope to be up and running soon, I decided to come in here and share with you guys in stead of raging out after snapping my clutch level off in a poor attempt to straighten it sigh...Click image for larger version.

    Not sure what happened I answered but it didn't post,,, So if it is what I mentioned there will be a hose attached to the bottom from the crankcase! Then yes if you wish you can delete it and perhaps sell or offer it up...
    It prevents oil from entering the air box is all.

    So 1 more stupid question but does anyone know if I can replace current clutch with something like this https://www.ebay.ca/itm/22mm-lever-H...cAAOSwoBlaep7Z it says only up to 500cc but looks similar not sure though if it holds enough fluid and weather or not the banjo bolt is the same, thanks again Gould be the last stupid question for awhile.

    OP,
    The plastic box in the above picture looks to be the YICS chamber to me. It will have four hoses that go to vacuum ports on the heads. It can be removed and the ports capped.

    Steven,
    It looks like the missing post is in the Carb Rebuild Parts thread.
