I basically did what Joe Spencer did, he has a lot of photos and threads on here about it with the beenie mod. The vgs are sold by Zenith  and have instructions for the install. They help with the slow speed handling.

Fat finger - I did sell a CH-601 with a Viking 130. Loved the performance of the Vking130 (Honda). Sold it because it was hard to get in/out of the bathtub.

Now own a CH-701 with a 100 hp Subaru. Updating some of the parts/systems. very interested in your modifications
