funny you say that - but that isn't the case.... only 1 is swapped, because the bike came with TWO LEFT SIDE VALVE COVERS  Grin

I bought another off ebay - thinking a spare might be handy and it too is a left. I'd be happy to swap with anyone out there looking for a lleft side in really good condition for a right side :-D

Marc,

Lookin' good, I'm sure that sponser will be pleased!  Wink

But, the more I look at your pictures the more it seems like maybe you have the valve covers swapped.  Although they will fit on either side the fins wont sit level if they've been transposed.  It might be a trick of camera angles but yours seem to be pointing "up" instead of level.  Unless that's the affect you were after, like it's trying to get airborne!

Hello Marc,
You've done an excellent restoration job. I started a similar project myself and I also used the acewell tacho with a cable drive speed sensor. Can you please tell me what setting are you using for the wheel circumference? I have tried 1436 but it's not accurate enough.
Thank you,
Radu

Hi there... let me go out in the garage when I can and I will tell you what it is set to.... but what I did was use a GPS app on my phone, ride down the road for a kilometer or so... at a set speed.... then checked my GPS max speed. 3 runs and I had found my setting that was within a half mph of my actual speed.
