Looking forward to wrenching on her this weekend as well. Need to change out a transmission bearing that's got a small leak.

mr anderson ... i'm jealous now

I spent 20 mins today hitting some surface rust on my exhaust to see if it would clean up.

I now know it isn't as bad as i thought it would be, So I will do a little here and there until its done.

I hope to have a building for the bike soon so I can work on it more often when I am trying to wind down after work.

cycle gear said they would mount and balance it for $40 if I bring the wheel in. so I'm going to pull it tonight and take it in first thing tomorrow morning. its going to rain all weekend anyway. I also looked at my skull cover to see how much further back I can move it so its as far under the edge of that tank as it can be. it looks to be a 2 to 1 ratio between the front a rear cylinder. the front has a 1 inch spacer and the rear has a 2 inch spacer. I'm going to try to cut them both in half to see if that's far enough. if not I will then cut the remainder in half again. I love having lumpy ride with me. just have to get him in his proper spot. oh! also got my bars done! I haven't powder cpated them yet but they are done.

Tore down the bike to deal with broken exhaust stud. Welder friend said no way he could get a bead on it and machine shop closed at 4. What the heck, I was feeling manly after the teardown so I'd give the easyout a shot. $30 for some good cobalt bits, a center punch, and a set of easy-outs. Built a little bracket to hold the head on the bench and away I went. It actually worked!
Just remember to go slow, and use PLENTY of lube.

I found a stock mini fairing in the proper color for $40. I don't very much care for the look but it does keep some of the wind off my chest at speed. Not bad considering new ones cost $240 if you can find them.
