Got everything put together and lights wired. Switches in the dash. Took it outside for a test run and to check how well the lights work hooked direct off the coil. Seems the tail lights fry at high rpm, must be too much voltage without a regulator? Who knows, but doesn't seem to hurt the head lights. So that's the 1st thing to fix.

As for the actual test ride... I had the front wheels toed in pretty heavy before, I thought this would help with the quick steering and jumpy handling. Turns out it makes it worse. I set toe to about zero (front wheels straight ahead) and it seems to handle a lot better that way. Steering seems a lot less quick. So that's the good news. BAD NEWS is that something chewed itself up inside the peerless 700 glass transmission... I think probably the shift keys. Had some belt drag issues where it would keep spinning with the clutch in, so a couple times I tried to knock it into 1st gear quick. Pretty sure it didn't like that. So the trans has to come back out so I can take it apart. Other than that, I think it's mostly done. Maybe add some belt guides, probably bolts that stick up through the skid plate should do it. I hope nothing serious got ruined too bad, I do have a spare 700, but hate to burn one up so fast. Hardly any use on this one at all.

Thanks stuntman jon and craftsmanquad, the 700 only has 2 keys I'm pretty sure. Haven't felt like tearing it apart yet....big surprise there. But one of these days I'll fix it up.
