Custom RD build
« on: February 08, 2022, 02:17:02 AM »
Hi all, I’ve never posted before but would like to post pictures of my RD I just finished.  This site was very helpful during the process so thanks guys for sharing your knowledge.

i love the look, any chance you can give a description part list like tail/tank/tire/bar price and site? and howd youd wire LED's into the system? this is exactly how i wanna build mine, oh yeah pipes and jetting would be great to as a head start on mine

What a beautiful bike! Like that colour. What size tires did you use?

Tires are Kenda Challangers 180/90~18s rear and 100/90~18 front.  Tail section is a custom piece made of steel. LED lights wired up directly with no need for resisters to work perfectly. Tank is stock. Handle bars are from an old mountain bike I had kicking around and are thicker walled and stronger then a stock Motorcyle bar. Pipes are JLomas stainless. Put in 130 main jets and raised the jet needles one clip position. Put in 10 mm reed spacers from economy cycle to increase bottom end. Using uni foam pods.

Cheers

Must say is stunning codition. Is that 350 or 250? Did you tried id allready on the road? Was always curious how this pipes performs.
Was the jetting hard?
