Electrical is not really my forte, but it is something that I understand.
55watt hid kit... Just make sure it's going in a glass housing

i am probably going to wire in a thermostatic switch at 195*F and a radiator fan as well to help keep this thing cool. After all this, I will probably attempt to get a plate for it...I already have sumo wheels for it and enough parts to build another 250f.

, sounds like you're set. You probably already know then, that the plating process is extremely easy in Texas!

I'm going to be in Louisiana at the kart track this weekend. This thing is leaking gear oil from somewhere so I need to get that taken care of first.

got a little more stuff done

Cleaned up all the goop from the graphics, also supermoto fender courtesy of Shawn at moto-extremes.com
and it starts...

Also the 150 is on there now, don't know what made me think I could run a 160...
and it starts...

Rode it around the neighborhood, still on the stock gearing so it tops out at 60-65 and pulls the front up every chance it gets. Ordering up chain/sprocket kit, and I'm mailing the paperwork out on tuesday to get my bonded title process started. Hope to order the stator and lighting stuff in the next few weeks here.

I can't wait to ride that thing. We may have to swap bikes for a night. I'll still swap you for the bemer but when you get that done I definitely would like to ride it.

might be sooner than I thought, I went to the DMV today to start the process and I thought you had to wait around a bunch for paperwork to come back, but I've got everything already. Going to purchase the bond at lunch, then probably hit the tax office at the end of the day, or in the morning for my title

ya, the bonded title process isn't as crazy as everyone makes it out to be. have you figured out what you are going to do for lighting?

most of my lighting components have arrived. i am running a 12v system that gets power from the stator fed through a regulator and rectifier. I don't think my stator will put out enough, but should extend the time it takes to deplete my battery.

hit a bit of a snag at the tax office. For some reason the lady wants me to go get a 68-a form, which is an application for "assigned or reassigned number" I think she's retarded, and I don't want to do it, but I don't know if it's because the name of the seller, and the name of the person on the most recently issued title is different, or she just made a mistake or misunderstood something. It seems 68-a is used when importing a vehicle from another country, and I've never heard of it being a part of the process for having an off-highway vehicle titled for road use.. As I have always understood all you need to do is pass inspection. So she's adding a completely un-necessary process to the list... I need to get all the done and pass inspection anyway, so I'm just going to do that, get the green slip and take magicman's advice and go to another tax office.

oh, and the only other time 68-a is mentioned is for titling homemade trailers... I don't see the relevance to my situation in either of those scenarios.

as far as lighting, I had to hunt down a stator, but I've got one on the way. I'll just run an ac regulator, and headlights/taillights.

sweet. yep, i'd simply wait for the next lane to open up and deal with another lady.

what stator? electrosport? ricky stator? do you know the power output? are you worried about the light dimming at idle? i'm unsure of the local laws concerning this.

Well, I got on the phone with them again and they're saying it's required because it's out of state and it has not been titled in the last ten years. So looks like the 68-a IS required. Oh well, no biggie, at least I have an answer as to WHY now.

No idea on the brand but it's a 50 watt, and I bought it from steahlyoffroad.com. I actually called ricky's stator on procycle's recommendation and the lady on the phone said "we sure don't, that flywheel is made to spin, and spin fast, and during the day" uhhh... okay... cece ugh thumb

Trail tech ended up pointing me in the right direction.
