oh, and I have to make one more recommendation just because I'm in the muck of it right now. oregonmotorcycleparts.com is a website for a guy who makes a great voltage regulator and rectifier unit for the bike and it works MUCH better than the stock charging setup. Plus once you have a different battery box, his units are much cleaner looking and easier to fabricate mounts for.
Thanks, Eric! I'll be looking into it!
