I printed the first official bike part, besides the cramp buster, a set of license plate brackets! I did a test run in PLA filament, which is not suitable for automotive or long term UV exposure. These were made with PETG which is like ABS but without the harmful VOCs and fumes.

I plan on printing the headlight ears, and possible a new gauge cluster out of this same material but maybe in the radioactive green/yellow for funsies.

OringsAndMore just got back to me about the water pump. They have 2 different items that may work. Since they're all under a buck, I ordered a few spares for future use. They ship super fast too.

The placement is set yet. I still need to trim the outside brim.

Fuel T leak resolved!

Now, cylinder 3 is acting up. Which is weird, because I'm 99% positive it was cylinder 2 last year. Both coils 2 and 3 are together. I've never really dealt with a coil issue before. I did reseat the plug wire into the coil, hopefully it's something that simple. Once that is resolved, I need to balance the carbs again.

I did install the plate brackets I printed (with some modification), as well as LED plate lights.
