You know, we're going to do, we're going to heat it up, not heat it up. okay, so here's a render, let's heat up this rubber a little bit. I think I feel more flexible and then we'll stretch it, I'm not sure we'll do it right, there we go, that should make it nice and soft and bouncy, yeah, it's hot, okay, come on, that went too far, but we'll pull it where it goes. It's supposed to be there, which is that line there because that line there is where it joins the bicycle and the frame. of the bike is this air filter, this air cleaner goes through the frame of the bike, the channel does it, so yeah, I'll put it in there and then we'll put a clamp on it.
Okay, it's there and there are no holes anywhere. You can see it well. okay, we're ready to put that back on the bike first, okay, then, ready, here we go, we're ready, go ahead, put the filter cap back on, we're supposed to upvote, lower some, both the filter on the lid like there we go we're on to what you guys think a little improvement yeah about that big bubble here let me get it out there and maybe a better view from the other side that's what you see from the front . I like it. I think it's much better, you can see the grilles and yes, I'll show you what it looks like from the back of the bike.
There you have it. I think it looks a thousand times better than that little light bulb over there. I want to call it pod. I think it looks a thousand times better, so let's start the bike and see what sounds really fast. Now that we have the air filter on, let's go ahead and get to work. They are in the

mirror

s. These are. I'm using it and they're basically going to come back so they're going to stay like this, we just let go because I have time, so yeah, this is the gist of it, now we have to trim this down a little bit.
I couldn't find a couple that had big enough holes, so I'm just going to use an Exacto knife and there we go. I need to be a little more careful on the throttle side, but this one should be just Okay, so Penny, be sweet because with the students, yeah, okay, so to tighten them you have to remove the mirror completely, which is why they have the big board here so we're going to mount it this way so the bolt is on the back and it's not if I don't see them right I might do it one day yeah I'll do it down that's not going anywhere and the boat is at the bottom, so now we can reflect back on the set screw, continue with the light bulb, you know, right?
So it's that screw, okay, that's not going anywhere, let's go ahead and move on to the other side, okay, now we're on the right side of the bike and Let's do the same thing, there it goes, okay, let's make sure that the mirrors are good, I brought the bike outside so we can see it a little better, here are the RN mirrors and the white grips. I went ahead and just put the cable ties on the wires that go to the handlebars ignore all the wires I haven't connected yet because I still have to replace that headlight and fix the rear fender so here's the other side, there's the air filter , I think it looks great there, I think it looks perfect if you keep the original that way, yeah, look at that, I think it looks a lot better, these are, um, if you're wondering, the red shocks will be 250 there I think an inch shorter than the original Yamaha ones and they mount directly so you automatically drop your bike an inch back just by adding those shocks.
They aren't that expensive so I'll have links to all the things I put on the bike. I have links to everything. That's in the description, so check it out and you can see everything from the grips to the handlebars, the mirrors and shocks, the air filter, all the turn signals. I'll put it all there for you now we can go in and check it out. Turning off even the rear light, I think it will look good. I put a little fake license plate on there just so I could get an idea of ​​what it's going to look like and you know no, I'm fine with that.
I can see how it is there. I'm pretty good with that. I was thinking it would be too much, but I don't think it is, so we'll see. You may have to tilt it a little more so the police don't. Don't mess with me, but I don't know, we'll see anyway, it's out in the sun and yeah, it's going pretty well, I've got a lot of work to do, but it's going pretty well. The choke, but they should save it for Another day, there will be a lot of work and probably a video of its own.
