沐......I almost kicked it over and lit it on fire earlier. Was having some weird issues w fuel or something, causing a tick , I was going to sell it for 20$. But I pulled carbs back off, added another shim to the needles, pulled all idle mixture screws out completely, cleaned them, then reset to 2.5 turns out and eliminated the fuel filter and it ran like a hero! So fucking fast and responsive compared to stock. Sounds crazy in person and under acceleration, just pulls and pulls.

I always have these things that just eat at me as I窶冦 working on bikes or cars. And I can窶冲 think of the best solution to fixing them when the time comes. This petcock from the tank @junkchopper was nice enough to supply for the #CB750 #caferacer build, had a small outlet and it was killing me thinking of how to adapt the fuel line. Once I actually get to these things it takes 5 seconds to figure out. 8$ for a little section of line and a filter ( which I thought was a rip lol), and it窶冱 all taken care of. Carbs are jetted and pods are installed, battery is charging, so I may fire it up tomorrow and see how it runs/ sounds w the new work done.

I窶况e had this braided front brake line for weeks, was positive it was too short and not what I ordered. Measured it just now to send pic to seller, and it was the perfect length lol. I窶冦 an idiot!
Fairingless Friday?? Tearing it down to do jets/pods, then forks. Thought I窶囘 get a pic of it lookin more classy 沁ゥ.

Much better! Now I just have to wetsand and polish tank, then the last real task is to reseal and lower forks, then it窶冱 just wiring, and installing jets in carbs. Can窶冲 wait to get this thing on the road.
What a fuckin jerk! That窶冱 the actual distance w muffler mounted to brace. Looks like some welding is in order
Getting so sexy. Test fitting these reverse megaphone mufflers. Bike is really coming into its own. It窶冱 crazy to see each step come into reality.
