    OK so I'm getting ready to assemble my first HT build. I want to do the clutch roller mod,better tensioner mod, better head nuts mod,better sprocket bolts mod,locktite on everything,fuel filter add,better plug,rubber frame isolation mod,plumbers strap on the exhaust mod,RTV on the intake and exhaust gaskets,dual pull brake lever mod....etc...etc... How much do I really want/need to polish this POS?:jester: At some point you just gotta slap the motor on the bike and ride it till it blows up right?:grin5:

    There definately is a point of diminishing returns on an HT setup...

    Isn't there?

    None of the mods you mention are that expensive and most are essential to
    making these kits run properly and reliably

    Slap it together and you will regret it.

    Half the fun is doing those kind of mods....

    That was meant to be a joke! Just got back from the hardware store $45 but that includes a $9 gas can and $5.95 for blue locktight...so it's not too bad. It's going to be fun! Those door rollers for the clutch cable are pricey though!
