Installed a 35w 6000k hid into the stock headlight, put on a set of chrome m bars and dime city solid gran turismo grips. The right size spark plugs came in so ill put those in tomorrow. Still holding off on the 19t sprocket until I break in the new tires m

Rode it to work, now that the rains have passed. Dropped off some Thruxton bars to get powder coated (black). Hagon black 2810s on order. Header pipes to be black ceramic coated later this month. Trying to get most mods completed by year-end. (Gonna wait 'til summer to mount Pazzo levers and Thruxton bars; want more saddle time before changing my posture)

Had her on the charger Tuesday. Rode her Wednesday and took the cover of this morning and listened to her click. Rode the 40 year old Honda. At least she starts and is not a pissy bitch.

Was actually last night. Ran her till she was almost out of gas. Pulled the tank, removed the petcock and swished around emptied the gas an examined. No particles, the cleaning process is complete. Replaced with a new petcock with scenes intact. Pulled the secondary air components and installed the AI kit from BC. Put in a gallon of gas and started her up, no issues. I wanted to take her for a quick spin but it started raining. It was already late so maybe today if the weather cooperates.
