Last minute issues: Front Brake, Front Tire, and Carb


Front brake master cylinder really likes to leak




I tried resurfacing the face with 1500 grit sandpaper and a flat block of wood but nothing seemed to work...so I bought a $15 master cylinder and now no problems.. until this fails : )



Ok no problem, now to just get the carb fuel screw dialed in.. psych!

whip out the rotary tool




Perfect time for a new JD Jetting hand adjustable fuel screw



Ok, things are looking good, bike fired up after a few kicks and adjustments to the new fuel screw to richen it up a bit. Rolled it out of the garage for the first time, one lap around the neighborhood and my front tire tube is no more.

Fixed the Red Plastics and Found a New Exhaust

Got these removable custom wrap wet onyx black cans from Oreilly's (12.99 for the base spray and black can combined)










I really like how they turned out. Only cost me $26 to coat all of the plastics and have some extra.




Went to remove the spark arrestor...


decided that I want a slick new exhaust

Thanks pd! I'll be off hitting the logging roads but it's already been on I-5 cruising around Seattle quite a bit in the last few days.
