PHOTOSHOPPED? NO WAY!!!
Microsoft Bitmap, sure.
I've resized many a hex heads by filing from Metric or British to SAE and that's usually due to the heads getting BOOG'd up.

Being soft metal I'd file that head to a HEX. Take maybe 20-30 mins.

Re: Electrical Connection Power Plate

Automotive, you can buy aftermarket battery post clamps with Butterfly nuts. SO EASY to add extra wires.
Bikes have little extra space but can be done.

Re: Electrical Connection Power Plate

If the battery negative post has an extra smaller wire, you can connect to it. If not, the body needs a ground near the battery and it's nut\bolted. You can connect there if it save routing too much wire. If you're trying to keep wires as short as possible, look for a bolt\nut that's on the frame ne...

Re: box under fuel tank?

Couple thoughts before RIPPING it out.
Why not try and trace back to the previous and original owners, they might still have the FOB. Or at least tell you what make that alarm is to get a FOB.
You have an alarm install outlet who might know what it is by looking at it?

My experience of "What could be causing the lower gas mileage?" was vacuum leaks. The unseeable PIN-HOLE type. Had to stretch the hose to open them critters up.

Re: Looking for input on issue B4 buying 99 Wing.

Well so far all the issues & their fixes are pretty much surface repairs.
I read up on the toothpick trick, yeeeaaah, rather just pull the carbs and bowls to see what's in there.

Re: Looking for input on issue B4 buying 99 Wing.

Lowest $$, quite correct. New piece of info from the owner. He said in pouring rain or car washes the bike had a hard time restarting until it dried out. So to me that means a coil. But oddly at 2K+ rpm's it runs normal. Now 'IF' I can only get him to let me pull some covers........ .. . . . . :roll:

Re: Starter wont activate

2-way kill switch I believe are for different users.
Some like to use the index finger (pulls it down) others a thumb (pushes it up).
Also, think about BIG MITTEN users... I'm one and switch it either way.

JUST my thought & sticking to it. 8-)
