    Well I won't bore you with details. But we started to do another high speed run. Well an off duty sherrif came out and we all got in trouble. None of us got tickets cuz we JUST GOT THERE! So he had no actuall proof. But my buddy that is the sherrif got into some real trouble. Might loose his job?

    I will let you guys know. But at the moment it doesn't look good? His badge and weapon were taken from him out there. The worst part about it was that he had a family friend in the front seat of the squad car also. I think that is what they are most mad about?

    We will see! Fuckin cops!
    Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, cigar in one hand, beer in the other, body used up, totally worn-out and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Racer, Thanks, It's no big thing.

    It is just very frustrating.

    I mean I knew what with all the little bitty parts even with good

    inventory controll of using zip lock bags that some thing was going

    to go walk about, it just happens.

    Thanks

    Now to order.

    Doing a job like that and spreading it out over several days, something is bound to get lost If it's where I can, I wait til I can devote enough time to do it all at one time. But I also know how hard it is to dedicate that much time at once.

    Jawhn is back up and riding again. The rear flat turned out to be just a loose valve. Can you imagine how happy I was when I figured it out?

    Tonight I finished the mods to my motorcycle Lazy Susan. Reinforced the plywood platform, and added some more wheels. Had to really redesign the center spinner part, too. I should have taken some pics, but I was just in a hurry to get it working again so getting the bike in and out of my backyard wasn't a giant pain...

    Thanks Racer.

    Yea, I've known since the accident that took my truck and

    the rain that took down my rear porch that this semester

    was "just" going to be working on the bike in school and

    not having the time to work at home too.

    I probably should be happy that the float pin is the only thing

    that has been lost.

    There's always tomorrow.

    Damn Dave, your luck sucks! In all the different carbs I've dealt with, never had one of those torn. You'd be better off buying a used set of ebay. I've seen sets go for 50 buck on there before.

    Racer, you got that right about luck.

    If I had bad luck at least I'd have some.

    Any knowledge on carb interchanability between years.

    One of the guys on here has kindly offered a set from a different

    year than my '98?

    I just keep chuggin' along. There a working bike at the end of this road some where

    I've never messed with interchanging different years. I say see if slide from the other carb goes in and works freely. If so, use needle from your slide and let her rip. They were all 38mm's so I'd almost bet they interchange.

    been thinking of slightly lowering the fork tubes in the front for a more aggressivre stance . only thinking about an inch. now, how the hell do you do this. i can obviously loosen those bolts but should it be raised by the bottom of the bike or am i cool loosening them slightly without having the dam bike flying down the forks.

    You're better off supporting the bike with front wheel off ground. If you don't...like you said, it's going to fly to the ground in a hurry. Do you have any type overhead support you can hook tie down to frame and use a come-a-long or something to raise it? I have a big I beam with an electric winch that I can raise stuff with. It's extremely handy. An inch is ALOT. It'll greatly affect how bike handles so be cautious riding it for first time til you get used to how it acts. Top pinch bolt is 6mm allen wrench and bottom hex bolthead is 12 or 14, can't remember offhand. You'll also have to loosen clip-on mounts, can't remember which wrench that takes.

    If you don't have a rear stand, you would've REALLY been screwed. It would've been so low you couldn't use the kickstand. And if you were by yourself, you'd be stuck holding up a bike til someone came along to help. And yes, unfortunately that was learned first hand

    when i got my bike it was dropped in the front lil over an inch, and raised in the rear, and all the settings for suspension was way off.
    but if you like the feeling of sliding down hill and having ur nutz ride on the gas tank all the time go for it.

    o and my bike didnt curve for shit like that.

    Did the last of the performance mods to the 1000RR today. PCIII USB and BMC filters.

    Took all of an hour to install and map the PCIII.

    She's running so sweet now. Passed the 2000 mile mark on it as well.
