Just wondering if the steering will be a bit twitchy, as it is.
Yeah I'm happy the way it is, bit hard to tell if the steering will be twitchy. I did push the trike along and steering was good,will find out when i get some speed into it on a straight bit of road.

Is it nice and clean in there now?

I need to get in mine and rewire the trike, but too many decisions involved.
Have changed the expansion tank, though :)

Almost done with the duct work and engine mounts, just tack weld this short piece of ss tube for now need to make sure every thing is OK before i weld it all up, you can see i had to cut one end on a slight angle because had trouble getting the engine line up straight in the frame because the frame is a little bit bent it will work.

I have some shim sheets to use to get the hole duct assembly set at the right height i machine slots in the engine base plates so i can move the the engine and duct work in and out as the NGV is a slip joint once the duct work heats up the NGV will lock itself in place.
