Your praise and good comments go in here, your smart ass remarks you can keep to yourself
That means you UF
That means you UF
That was my initial thought too, I will try that tonight if I can find my box-o-o-ringsOn your stabilizer...can you place thick o-rings or even an oil seal on both sides of the ball joint at the frame mount clevis? The rubber should compress when necessary but keep everything from flopping around.
I tend to agree with you, Diamond stitching, no flap. But that means more work:doh:First off, awesome bike man, can't believe I missed out on it for so long! Its almost exactly what I'd eventually one day want to build - beefed up with a retro feeling, kickstart, etc. In. Love. (Please don't be too pissed if you one fine morning find the bike gone )
I like the seat no flap and definitely have the diamond stitching there, awesome! What's your thoughts for a taillight? A led strip on the lower edge or a round one?
Also a bit torn on the side flap. I've always loved a minimalistic look on a bike, not too cluttered and a clean mid section under the tail definitely is all that, but the oil tank really fits there and comments the kickstarter era. I'd say leave it on, but I wouldn't mind the bike without it as well.
Keep the updates coming!
It seems like it. I took the air hose and blew down the center carb fuel inlet thinking the needle might be stuck, the fuel ran in but wouldn't shut off so I am not sure if I fugged something up or not. after that is when I fire the bike and it actually ran fro a bit until the carb ran out of fuel. I tried it again today and the same thing, fuel seemed to go into the center and right carb but nothing on the left. The bike fired right back up with the choke but only on 2 cylinders. I even tried blowing air in the tank to pressurize it to push the fuel out. but that didn't work. On a positive note the air in the tanks did pop most of the dent out of the fuel cap!Is every single carb starving for fuel? if thats the case then sounds like your on the right track with the air lock. Is the tank vented?
I would bet it's this. I had a similar situation with my t350 where I would try to prime the engine but the fuel would only go into the left carb. Turns out the fuel valve was closed from all the gunk from sitting for years even though I had soaked them in carb cleaner priorProbably need to pull the bowls off the carbs and check the fuel needle valves then. could be sticky
