And yes, got what you mean on how the Pete clutch is. This is direct chain drive to the input shaft on the rear so I'm going to fab a clutch pedal and linkage. With using the hand lever from the bike if I can. It's going to be tight at the front of the engine. Accel cables, brake cables, clutch cable and radiator hoses. That all will be close to the zoomie pipes. Plan is to wrap the pipes with header wrap so I don't need to worry about anything melting. But I've never used the stuff before so I hope that works.
yes the kick stand switch is hooked to the coil pack power lead . the igniton does have a heavy draw and needs the good contacts so make sure the relay is capable of handling the draw without melting the contacts.
as for the clutch the one on the bike is a good one , bu they do not like to be slipped as they are oil cooled and when get hot react backwards of a dry clutch and will not release at all ( they weld together ) and using the factory cable with a floor mount shouldn't be too hard to fab , the only problem is figuring out the lever ratio as it won't need much in pressure . and doesn't have much movement
. as for the header wrap if done right ( nigce and tight and overlapping ) it will keep the heat in the pipes and out of the engine compartment , I have a few pontiacs were we use it to run oil lines thru the headers to a aux filter unit up front and it prevents the rubber in the braided hoses from getting cooked from the heat and some times the hoses lay up against the headers . you want a brand that has a high silica content to it as thats what prevents the heat transfer . the cheap stuff your better off wrapping the pipes with cotton gauze . as it will last longer .. ( don't do that )
