This morning, I went on the first ride (if you can call it that) of the season to the office on my little 1970 Ct90 AKA "The Minion", as it is a little yellow worker, and so named by my wife. It was 40 degrees, but I was going for a ride, even if it was to the office. And....It started!!
So I got back home, and last night, I was resurrecting the 1973 R75/5. New battery as well, but I was leaking gas from the fuel lines, somewhere in that whole crossover pipe by the air filter, so I swapped out all the fuel lines. Not with the pretty stuff, but the bike isn't so pretty anyway. And....It started! Went on a nice little ride.
And then, the 1963 R69S that has been giving me such heartache. What the hell, I wanted to change the oil after the rebuild, I had the oil, so I got everything ready, tickled the carbs, a few kicks to prime, a bit of gas spilling from a carb, but gentle kicks, and... It started! Went on a nice little ride as well, and then put fresh oil in, and went for ride #2.
I've never had this happen before - all bikes started, all bikes work....I don't know what to do!
