The rear suspension had bump stops. I took them off and noticed that I could get the spring plate to bottom out on some rough stuff. I’m going to notch the plates today.FranzKeymasterSeptember 28, 2017 at 8:53 amPost count: 2971
After that I think I’ll have it pretty much dialed mechanically. I’m going to come in way under budget, and still have tomorrow to do stuff. Anything else you can think of? Paint/detail the wheels? I could pull the fender guards like we talked about. But not sure I’ll have enough time before the weekend to do correct paint repairs. You’re still coming this weekend?

dang man you’re killing it!…what is the hard start relay? yeah that fule filter was my dumb mistake…the vapor lock thing totally makes since now.JdawgParticipantSeptember 28, 2017 at 9:11 amPost count: 422
actually, I’m coming next weekend…sorry if I made it sound like it was this weekend, I meant the first full weekend of October.
as far as other stuff goes…how about rear shocks? did you figure out what was puking fluid on the tranny? i replaced one of the boots but the other one was old…maybe replace those? the horn has never worked that would be cool to have working. are the brakes good to go? I redid them but wanted you to make sure they were adjusted and stuff. the gravel guards being gone would really cool…if you can make em go away without it being too obvious they were there go for it. i think the speedo could use some love, the odo doesn’t work and one of the idiot lights doesn’t idiot lol.
if you have the time to keep dialing and we still have budget…dial away.JdawgParticipantSeptember 28, 2017 at 9:15 amPost count: 422
you know…………I’ve always wanted some Porsche alloys….is there a way to re-drill drums and have both bolt patterns? JJ mentioned that he had some OG bumpers…what about something like that?
I’ve seen you guys do some bitchin headlights…the ones on there are kinda cheesy repops….
all just thoughts…what do you think?FranzKeymasterSeptember 28, 2017 at 3:12 pmPost count: 2971
Yeah I adjusted the brakes and pedal stops. I noticed that the brake fluid was dark. I replaced with new, and bleed out.
Cool. We have time to do some stuff. I got you.
OG exhaust clamp are a better fit.JdawgParticipantSeptember 28, 2017 at 3:32 pmPost count: 422

I’d like to be in the “Thursday Club” someday. Kinda’ out of my reach financially, so “Parkway Project” would be more like it. 😆
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.JdawgParticipantSeptember 29, 2017 at 7:57 amPost count: 422
Hell yeah! Fuck them gravel guards…Them things suck! Where are they racing? grand junction? That would be kinda cool to see. I haven’t raced a bicycle since I was like 8 but the wife and I have some Big Rippers that we cruise around at the beach.

My dad flew RC planes. I never could get the whole everything backwards chit when the plane is coming back toward you. My mind just don’t do reverse well at all. I am a forward thinker! Sure is fun and relaxing to watch though! 😉JdawgParticipantSeptember 29, 2017 at 11:27 amPost count: 422
