    Looks like I am going to take the coast...so much more scenic. I'm thinking Coos Bay as a first stop (from Vancouver, BC). That's a solid day's riding...Unless you recommend a better spot?

    All I can tell you is that I had noticeable surge, did obsessive TB sync, etc. Had very strong surging and fuel cut-off at low RPM. Changed plugs, rode the bike...and I'm a believer.

    Go figure,...

    No Surge + Autolite 3923 plugs + wow!

    Just went for a test ride. Can't believe the change from the Bosch FR6DDC plugs that were in the bike. Almost NO surge and almost imperceptible vibration now at 5k rpm!

    What about the ground wire, and the TPS connector? When you say rubber spigot, do you mean unbolt the TB from the cylinder head?
