To answer the question about the fairing it is a Pichler. Link below is someone's video of their similar bike.
This happened to me, I had flames coming out of my exhaust. Swapped the L-Jetronic box with one from another bike, problem solved.
Powder coat it, check e-bay I've seen several there. I would like the chrome one but the only one I've seen included the entire exhaust system, over $300.
When I first set up my account I must have misunderstood something which caused my member number to become my screen name.
Not worth the effort to change it.
I've see Paul three times this year, first time he was opening for Ruthie Foster, the second time he put on a heck of a show at the Winthrop Blues fest and the third time was a week later in...
Recorded this Sunday night, if you like Surf Guitar you will love this
You will be happier with the standard seat height and I think with a T if you can find one as they have taller bars allowing you to sit more upright. Also be aware that some folks replaced stock...
I know for one thing the side covers are kind of hard to come by, you may need a different tail cowl unless yours has holes for the side (battery) covers to fit into.
Best bet find someone that...
Thanks, yep I'm looking for the air box deletion kit, got my first one in 87. Going to call now.
All anyone needs to do is compare high temperatures in both locations during this years rally and ask "where would I rather ride" we may get our first 90 degree day of the year in Portland this...
I'm with you on the coolness factor of this K&N. Looks cool plus increased air flow over top of engine sans air box keeps everything cooler on those hot hot days.
I've had no problems related to...
I fought the insurance company over the value of my "totaled" bike. Finally came to terms that I felt were fair (3 months). I should have just taken the money, but I got the bike and some money. If...
The only time I have ever had a tailgater is on a two lane with slower traffic in front of me, any other time I'll move over and let them pass.
If you can't get over, or out of their way slowing...
Looks like it is going to a good home judging by the condition of his other bikes.
All cleaned up, a lot of rubbing, scraping, and picking. The break cleaner wasn't that effective but may have helped. Still have some spots to hit with a razor blade.
Wild guess from one who is clueless, perhaps the rubber has vibration dampening properties? This is in the fairing so maybe it helps keep them (screws) in place? As I said I'm clueless.
Mac's gives you blue boxes with ? in them. Much kinder than evil pc red boxes...
Bikecushion.com better than an air hawk and really saved my butt. I hadn't ridden much last summer before riding 2500 miles with the bike cushion on a rock hard Corbin. I felt good at the end of...
The blue stuff did seem to want to just rub off the flat surfaces but I wasn't sure how well it would come out of the grooves. Time for a new tooth brush anyway.
Thanks again, I knew that pawn shop Craftsman torque wrench would come in handy.
Thanks, I'll add the rubber bushings to my list of small parts needed for this restoration.
Should have painted parts back soon so I'd better get busy.
I like the thought of leaving it alone. The gaskets I intend to use are used and fit well but I wanted to avoid any slippage as they are slightly shrunk.
So what is RTV? Is that the full name?
I am replacing the cylinder head cover on my bike with one from my parts box, the replacement has 15 year old blue sealant still in the grove where the gaskets go.
1. What do I use to clean this...
That would be a T model. The C had a tiny windshield on a sort of square headlight cowl.
Just picking nits...
