Hello from Arkansas

Hello all. New here on the forum.

I joined for all the info on the highly controversial SCC! I traded an old Kawasaki dirt bike for my first wing, a 78 GL1000.

Came with new tires. And a mess of the wiring. Got it sorted out, and she ran. Terribly. So I took it upon myself to rebuild the factory carbs.

I honestly can't believe these carbs even ran the bike. Corroded jet towers that won't seal. Stuck floats. Leaking needle and seats. Stuck slides. Busted vacuum buttons.

The engineer in me has sent me down the scc path, as it'll be in line with several over modifications I plan to make to the bike.

Proud Owner of a 1978 GL1000
Soon to be Highly Modified!

Hello SpeeDog

And still riding...
I just regrets the things I haven't done.
