History
Bought the bike in Florida during a tropical storm. My dad rode it 3 1/2 hours back to SC. Bike had a handful of maintenance that needed attending to. I am making this showcase to keep track of what I do with the bike. Thank you
This will be updated as I go. I have a long ways to go.

Air box deleted, exhaust is on and carbs jetted accordingly. Letting the sealant set up for a couple days. In the meantime I have to fab some brackets and stops for kickstand and center stand.

I see why people lose their rear fenders. Bike looks mean without it. Cleaning up some wiring before putting everything back together.

Bike is “finished up” for now.
main jets 142
Pilot jets 42
Needle 1 shim

Bike is running really strong with this set up. Have to hook my air fuel gauge to it for fine tuning but I’m happy right now.

I have more plans for the bike as I am leaning towards doing a track day. But I have to sort through my trucks wiring harness first (92 dodge Cummins). Also still trying to find time to paint my belly pan and finish regular maintenance to the bike.
