    I wanted to go to Farmington but just couldn't make it due to work schedule...I'm a Realtor at the Lake of the Ozarks and don't remember the last time I left the area on a weekend in our busy season. Farmington is about 2 hours away and I thought about a day trip but just wasn't in the cards.


    The week before Farmington Rally was Lake of the Ozarks bike week and we had close to 100,000 cycles attend this year...I stayed on 4 wheels for the weekend though.

    Thanks to everyone for the comments and it only took me about 18 months to finish my freshen up on my L. I never would have been able to do all the work if I wouldn't of had help from many members of this forum and thanks to all those people also.

    Originally I was considering polishing the entire carbs or even leaving carb bodies as is and the local bike shop offered to dip my carbs in their ultrasonic cleaner and said the carbs would "Look Like New" after dipping. When I picked the carbs up I was shocked at how they looked....terribly discolored and stained. At that time I knew very little about carbs and considered sending the carbs off for paint and rebuild. With the help of this forum I ended up painting and rebuilding carbs myself and 800 miles later she is still purring like a kitten.


    But as far as why black?....no reason other than I thought it would look good and that is SEM automotive paint with 3 coats of SprayMax 2k clear.
