    Put a new dash on it.



    Speedo corrected for the final drive and wheel size being different than the ECM parent bike (XB9SX).

    Frame swap



    I'm keeping the Blast wheels. It maintains drive ratio, lower mass and less inertia allowing better acceleration and turn-in. I'm having a custom axle turned and will be using a 136 tooth belt from an 883. It's ~40lbs lighter than a stock Blast.

    You should looking making a fiberglass undertail with custom brake light. Would totally clean up the look of the tail.

    I'm partial to the exposed subframe look myself.
    Have you given any thought to moving the battery to the area behind the front cylinder? Talk about mass centralization!

    BTW love the build!

    Any ideas what you're looking at power to weight wise?

    And if you're interested, I have a tail fairing that I chopped up when I first did my undertail, that I'm not using. It's yours if you want it.

    PM me if you want some pics

    Stock is 360, confirmed with my own stock Blast. This one is 320 with battery and pipe stacked on top of it (since they're not installed).

    I dunno what I plan on doing for the undertail. I want to get some generic plastic to line the inside of the subframe and hide the wires/battery a bit. I prefer to keep the battery in the stock location, since it doesn't require additional metal. It also leaves that space open for other 'things' later on.

    Power to weight? No clue as I have no idea what kind of power it makes right now. I will take it to JTS for some dyno tuning once I finish this build.
