99vn750 ct

Blacking out the frame and painting fenders and tank flat army greenish color. Earshave, and new mufflers. Removing heat shields on headers and wrapping. Contemplating changing the rear end fender/light situation. Also new seat from a newer sportster

Right now trying find a good matte green color for the tins. Ordered some stuff online mtn94, but the color chart is a little off or my monitors color is a little off. The army greenish color i chose came out almost kawasaki green. It's a little silly.\

thats the stock seat off a xl883 sportster. Doesn't really fit between the tank and back part of frame that starts to curve up, need to rig something up.

Anyone cut the rear section of the frame off? It has a large solid piece welded along the bottom of the curve for reinforcement. I am assuming this is just to support the weight of passenger.

Talking Go Ahead and cut

Yes you can cut that off. I actually just today added some bar stock and modified the back plastic to clear the barstock and bent it to make a nice back rack. it looks great.(my bike is now a bagger, I put on hard plastic bags last month with built in turn signals, removed the rear signals. I welded the rack to those protruding tubes off the top of the fender.

MODS: AGM/MF battery.Rect.Black Mirrors,Smoked windshield H D brakes,Voltmeter,Backrest pack,Chrome brake cover, Chrome res. cover, Hard saddlebags red turn signal lights built in.Custom back rack.Chrome mirror dampeners,Red NGK spark plug wires,K+N air filters, Chrome windshield trim, Chrome fender trim front and rear,Gas tank chrome trim.

So I finally finished putting the bike back together after being down for amonth or two. Did the ear shave and degoat, new mufflers. Trying to start it but its not really catching. Have about half of gallon of gas in the tank from when it was put down, I'm hoping that the gas is just stale. Also noticed that gas is leaking from the left side exhaust, I'm assuming this is because the engine is flooded.

Any advice?

Are both cylinders firing ?

Definitely need to pull the plugs...dry them out.
You might think of putting some cheap autolites in, till you get the bike running properly.
