Should be ready to run. Need to play with some wiring. Doing headlight, tail light and brake light off the rear brake with a TrailTech KTM setup.

Well it runs, noise on the right side of the engine... Going to do a water pump seal kit and hunt for it and recheck the valves. Hope the rod didn't get hurt the last time the top end failed on this crank. Didn't feel any play. Got a spare loose crank I can get a rod kit slammed into and welded easily enough. We'll see. Oh and BTW f-you Electrosport for selling garbage merchandise.

Best news I've heard all day. It runs (shocked after this revelation) but has a noise... Going to order a top end gasket kit and flip it around...

check the valves when you've got it apart and make sure they're all straight.

Reused gaskets, flipped the piston around and slammed it together. Once the carb settled down (had it upside down) it fires off instantly.
