    WOOHOO - I mounted the GPz cylinder block this evening. I had it all the way on except for cylinder #2 oil rings, bent the bottom one, and had to pull everything off, replace it, and start all over. Thankfully I had a spare set of rings lying around from a previous screw up.
    But it is done, and during WWE Friday Night Smackdown, no less.

    Brian, expect a call...HEHE

    p.s. sscott, that looks factory. Really blends in with the lines of the bike. Very nice.

    Might have made more points if you had used that line on the wife instead.

    I had the pleasure of working on a lawn mower today. But I did reward myself. 185 miles were put on my RT this afternoon.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    today ... i pulled the carbs and changed main jets and reassembled ... all before breakfast yesterday .... i found that after my valve adjustment (one of the adjustment screws had r-u-n-n-o-f-t) and carb sync the old gurl ran great (smooth, quiet, immediate throttle response) up to 3/4 throttle, at which point she quit trying and generally just got all kinds of broke up ... is it possible, now that she's actually running on "all 4" that the improved scavenging and 30 degree ambient temps have required a jet swap? i dunno for sure, but aftah i dress for the weather (knit hat and gloves ) i'm gonna find out if my cure worked.

    Luckily, it was just some collars and washers. I put oversized wheels on it to raise the deck up to keep from mowing all these rocks. Though the town is small and a little removed from the metro, we actually have an Ace Hardware store. It even carries stainless metric fasteners and dark chocolate Reeses! The mower will do its duty today, then I'll take an old Suzook out for some BBQ in Blanco.
