I sorted out my horn snafu and routed the fuel lines this morning.
I’m SOOO close to starting it. I just need to mount the reg/rec (it will go in front of the bottom triple clamp, below the headlight), make new seat mount brackets, and then do a few normal maintenance things like top off the oil level, etc.
I have no idea how far off the jetting is on this new carb, though, so that will be a whole ‘nuther challenge. I haven’t attempted to tune a four-stroke since I was in my teens, and I don’t think I did an optimal job of it then.
My goal is to have it roadworthy by May 18. This is being held at a dealership just nine miles from my house via two-lane roads, so it could be a suitable shakedown run.
