Finished putting the bike together and all the little parts.  Also got two more heart cycles done.  Once totally cooled the last time, to it out for a short ride to seat the rings.  Bike feels strong, but you can tell it needs a tune, a bit rich under 3000 rpm.  Rode it home and now have 62 miles on it.  Have an appointment for Tuesday to have it tuned.  Will have a few more miles on by then.  Sounds good and feels good.

Thanks.  The air cleaner seems to offer a little more leg room than the stock one.  Stock one I really wanted to keep but it just does not flow enough air, it barley flows enough air for the stock motor.

Well the results are in, picked the bike up from the Tuner, Brandon Johnson at J&B Performance cycles yesterday evening.  Came out better than we expected.  I'm very pleased.

I was able to get out and ride 195 miles yesterday.  Mostly in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.  This bike is very well mannered and very easy to ride.  It is very smooth, which lets you forget how much power it does have.  It does very well in hilly twisty roads, but put it on a straight a way and roll on power at 75mph is incredible.  6th gear about 65 there would not be a need to down shift to pass a few cars or trucks.

So far very happy with how it turned out and rides.  Hope to get more miles on her in the next few days to check all riding conditions and situations.

Put another 130 miles on her yesterday.  The more I ride it the more I like it.  Roll on power is what I like best.  Can not just give it wide open in first or second.

I have just over 1K miles on the bike since building the motor.  Did the first oil change yesterday with 900 miles on the build.  Oil was very clean, nothing was on the drain plug at all.  I was very pleased about this.

This bike is easier to ride than stock.  Throttle response is very smooth, no surges or such.  First four gears it pulls fine from any RPM.  The other day was in 4th for quite a while on a twisty hill road, could easily pull out of a curve at 2000 rpm, and then up to 2700 rpm before next cover.  Also cruise fine at 65 mph in 6th.  There really is power everywhere.  5th and 6th do better if kept above 2400 rpm.  If you grab a hand full of throttle above 3K you better be hanging on, it pulls very hard, very quick.

3/4 throttle in 1 or 2nd will fry the tire.

Have only check the mpg on the last tank.  It was okay, 38.2 mpg.  That said I had a good 30 miles of riding very hard trying to keep up with sport bikes going across the mountain on hwy 68 out of Tellico to Ducktown.  That said I think at a steady interstate cruise I will be able to see 43 mpg or so, and similar on group rides.

Very happy with the bike
