Burned all the midnight oil

I think I may have been the only one who thought I would make it to Ohio.

It bombed. It didnt make it out of the city. Back to work.

I rode it tonight. Here is how it is rolls right now. Richer than Google and the OG LTD tank. The old GT3r tank was starving the carburetors of fuel. The petcock on that tank was built for a single cylinder and could not fill the float bowls fast enough. I also found that after sitting for two years outside, the timing advance mechanism was stuck and it wouldnt allow the bike to fully rev up.

and then… back to work.

I got the top end back from Mar Automotive all nicely cleaned, honed, and painted for $50. I really recommend these guys. They open at 7:30am which makes it easy to drop/pickup parts before heading to work. I found an NOS piston and rings on Ebay for $130 which is expensive but it was the […]
