I love it Brent!  It's the custom mods like that that sets bikes apart from the rest.

    The warrior and roadstar does not fit as far as I know.  Chucky was working on a CNC one for me, but has not finished it yet.

    Looking good, but something needs to be done about that big ugly bolt in the center.

      A plastic spike cover. So it's light and it'll still look good. Just paint it. GTG. Or a Kuryakyn stiletto end cap.. Those arn't too heavy.

      I say take that pully off, get'er chromed out or put mirrors on it and have an LED wring on the inside.  It would look like a little bada$$ laser show out the side of your bike.

      'cause it's mo' ghetto.
      By the way (not wanting to be too picky), since the Raider's engine and transmission share the same case, this is just the cover for the transmission's drive pulley. I understand that it sounds cool to refer to the pulley cover as a "primary cover", but trust me, you wouldn't want all of the associated problems that go along with a true primary type drive. Especially with the amount of torque the Raider's engine is capable of producing.
      That said, I think Brent's mod looks great. Because I want the title of "King of Chrome" (this is my fall back position, in case I don't win ROM), I'd chrome the cover, and the pulley, fashion a chrome or stainless steel cover for the nut, and then add an LED (not purple). The resulting light show would be extremely high on the C.D.I. I. (chicks dig it index). Also, if you were to pass through Roswell NM, you'd make the front page of the "Area 51 Tribune"

      Are you guys bad mouthing purple in general or just purple LEDs?  I like purple.  Purple LEDs on the other hand aren't as eye catching as most other colors.
