That's Great that the FI error was just a sensor connection Great Work- looks like it did when the factory put it out

If you give a Moose a Muff..ler...
Its a Kid thing

Next time I'll put some effort into my username. This one sounds like a toilet Bowl cleaner or Treadmill, or..

Great thread and congrats on the nice ending! How much was your total cost to get this Vee running? I know you put in a lot of labor, just curious what the total "out of pocket" was considering you knew it was a project. My guess is you did pretty well and now have the piece of mind that the engine should be good for some time.

$1,800 on the bike.
$200 on the donor engine.
$70 on head gaskets.
$20 on gasket compounds.
About $300 on very cool tools that I needed

Lots and lots of happy hours of labor, listening to cool music in my garage.

Thanx peeps. I still find it hard to believe that I was able to actually pull this one off flawlessly. I keep expecting the engine to blow up like TNT between my legs every time I ride. Ha!
