A quick vid, just doing a little tuning on the carbs, seems to be running healthy, just a little more jetting and toby should be a good daily driver... Laughing

Glad to see you got it together. Be sure that your brakes are in proper order. After Steve finnished my carbs he took it for a spin and found it very hard to stop at the end of his street. I got it home and found that the drivers side shoe was completly gone pale .

next on the list is disks, the drums should keep me in "break in engine" mode for a while. I noticed the difference in not wanting to stop to easily just test driving, I plan on driving to work tomorrow too pale hope to make it in one piece Laughing

Drove to work this morning, listning to whole 45 mins to the engine for unusual sounds, sprung a oil leak at my full flow line right above the header so I left a nice smoke screen on the way to work. Other than that Toby ran like a gutless blood hungry beast Twisted Evil

I got the throttle cable done pretty quick and took my little one and some of her neighborhood friends on the test drive and stopped for some ice cream, I had a drumstick Laughing... the cam was MIA for the event but it turned up in time for there little ice cream party.
