Great job -- what did it feel like when you realized you had to pull and split the engine for the oil pump?

I love that color -- what is it?

I thought to put the bike aside for another time, but after grabbing a bear I found myself tearing it down.
The color is a candy paint. Grabber Orange from Auto Air Colors http://www.autoaircolors.com/paints/4654.html Manufactured in Connecticut

The momentary push buttons I got off ebay make the handlebars nice and clean.
In the near future, I will do the same to the Wing.
Was it hard to convert it to the M-unit wiring?

Not very hard. Just do one system at a time.
I like to start with ignition and charging system first then move to other accessories
