Same here John, cloudy with some slight rain, not as cold as your day anyway.

I installed iridium ngk spark plugs, adjusted the valves, installed a randakk oil filter adapter, changed the oil after a marvel flush, and replaced the floorboards with factory foot pegs. I know, I just got my bike so I'm all motivated and stuff. She finally Idles at 950 rpm. I'll soon sync the carbs, rebuild the rear brake master cylinder, and do the timing belts (lets hope she still runs after that).

Huh?

Gasp!

The temps climbed above 60 and the roads are dry...

I cranked her up and at the speedy rate of 25 mph, I cruised the local rural roads just to sight see things I never can see at Warp Speed.


Here, you can see that my winter riding has been stifled a lot, and E10 ain't worth a crap for good fuel mileage.

Hey Dennis, I just poured the balance beads inside the tire before mounting it. Worked well for me.

Thanks. Will that work if I'm spooning the tire on?

What do you use for beads and where do you get them?

Why ain't we ridin'?

Yes, it did for me. I used a couple of tire irons to put the tire on the rim. I put one side of the tire on the rim then poured the beads in the tire. Then I put the other side on the rim with the tire irons. When airing up of tire I raised the tire up so the stem was on top then put the air in the tire. Worked fine for me. I used the 2oz bag in the front tire and 3oz bag in rear.
I got my counteract beads from Cyclemax.
