I'm probably just lucky
If other parts of this thing are any indication, I may have a bike that is built from 3 others. When I got it, the carbs were missing pieces internally. The cam cover plate bolts were twisted off. A lot of the kind of stuff that you can't see when you are test riding one.
I rue the day that I just took it out for a fast test drive and back. It runs great until it comes up to full temperature and then the 160* solenoid opens and it runs like sh*t.
Next bike I get will be test driven like it was on a Grande Prix race and the temps up against the peg. I've had my fill of somebody else's troubles.
Its' not too far now from being fixed, but I really suspect that I am going to have to replace the vacuum solenoids and all of the rubber vacuum hoses.
I finally got a day free this morning and got my ole reliable '72 Chevy Impala back on the road. I was changing out the radiator, water pump and belts a couple months ago and didn't finish up the job. Well, it is done now.
That gives me a go to work vehicle and now I can pull the bike down and see what is wrong with it.
I just wish that I had a bike lift so I could get it up above my knees. My left knee is threatening to fall apart, then tendons snap every time I take a step. Almost fell down the stairs this morning when it started to go out on me.....
Enough... back to better things.
