You've taken on quite a challange. After reading your post I walk out to my bike, currently on a lift, and looked at the potential issues. Are you sure that you'll have adequate ground clearance running the pipe under the frame? My stock 800 has only 4.5 inches of clearance between the lowest point on the frame to the ground. Subtracting 1.5 inches for the pipe and anny clearance you add to get the pipe off the frame, I would have under 3 inches of clearance. Curbs, suspension movement, 2 up riding, speed bumps would all give me a great cause for concern. Given any thought of re-routing the front cyl around the front of the frame? I know the oil filter is right there but.....
