So is the idle still rough?
I never used any gasket goo. I just removed the actual reed then put that valve plate back under the block off plate. I also used Allen socket head bolts to fix block off plates.
Do you think you had a seal leak?
Yes, I think so.
I've removed the reeds and put it back together with a light smear of removable blue gasket sealant,
I also replaced that hard to get at allen key bolt with a 10mm hex and phillips head bolt from the old battery and used some blue loctite on it.
Beautiful day here today, 21 C at 10am, no wind or clouds around.
I have to test out the new suspension.
Ohlins shock at the back, and Ohlins springs, oil and valves in the front, with new bushes and all.
From my short ride yesterday it was like riding on rails and very comfortable and predictable.
Also added some HEL brakelines all round.
There is a suspension specialist in town, I think I will get them to set me up properly, and then just leave it alone.
Just found out too,there's a Dyno in town that does Power Commander 3, wonder how much that will set me back.
It's only money, just had a friend drop dead at 60, didn't drink or smoke, healthy lifestyle.WTF
