You know, I think that's all they are. Once they get here I'll confirm that.

Sure but I've already paid for the others, I didn't even think about the cv boots until you posted about it.

Nice bike. I'm building a bike using the Weapon frame also. Where did you run the wiring, fuses, and terminals?

I ran all of the wiring through the frame, it exits at the rear motor mount for battery and tail lights, at the top motor mount for ignition switch and headlight switch at the neck cups for the headlight and at the axle adjuster for the taillight. The only wiring not ran in the frame is for the brake light switch. I used 2 inline fuses one for the charging system and one for the ign/acc. I've only got a headlight, tail light and ignition on the bike so it's a pretty simple setup.

I rode it today!! It's my first time riding a ridgid and I have to say it's not all that bad, with my big ass I bottom the springs on the seat really easy but still I love it!

The engine seems to make a lot of noise, whirling and ticking which may be normal. The primary is a little clunky but typical Harley, the hand shift/foot clutch will take getting used to, theres also a little bit of chain slap on the fender so I guess I need to trim it some more but other then that I'm happy... no fires, and nothing fell of it so it's all good! Can't wait to ride it again tomorrow...

Done! for now at least...

DONE!!, for now at least. This winter I plan to take it all back down and get nice paint and powder coat on it. Not sure what colors yet but there will lots of big metal flake. I've also got some nicer rocker boxes for it.

It's nice to ride, very different then anything else I've rode. It runs like hell, a little rough on the kidneys and the foot clutch need to be a better design but I love it and we only live once so what the hell?...I've been putting some miles on it, so it's a little dirty in these pictures.

I think it's a little over 15" including threads.
