Finally got my plate & registration.  Had a meanazz broad my first go around couple weeks ago that sent me home saying that I needed more information filled out.

Went back, unsure of what I needed to fill in on a line and different lady told me not to even worry about that; gave me my Texas plate with a smile.  Why do some of those broads down there at dmv make it such a pita :dunno_black:

Ah well, legal and running pretty good.  Picture challenge time :hithead:

having fun w picture challenge,...

Thanks Show.  It's great fun and that exhaust makes it sound beastly.  At throttle it roars.  I'm not crazy about loud exhausts but I kinda like it. haha  I did get a couple of replacement cans to quiet it down and now not so sure I want to. :dunno_black:

that's awesome. I hate manual tire changing. If I had space I'd get one of those. Maybe when I get ready to do the tire change-o-rama I'll ride down to Houston with some Devil's Backbone in tow and talk you into letting me use your cool tools.

Should have at least taken a pic to update eh,...

ANyways, been out and about, riding to work, enjoying the cold,....  Went over to mom's this past weekend and aside from a pos subaru, a crapped out camry and turd impala wanting to race on the Beltway, things went a ok.  Except my idle keeps going up.  I thought I had it dialed in pretty well and things were good but I rode about 40 miles one day to my buddy's pizza business and my idle seemed high.  Turned it down and all's well.  So, back to mom's this past weekend and idle is up again. :dunno_black:

I'm thinking I have a leak somewhere.  I haven't looked yet but any .02 tips appreciated :whisper:

Intake vacuum leak will sound raspy and sorta like the engine noises are getting out cos they are.
Idle rpm plug pull looks white ???
WD40 test ?
You could also have an exhaust leak, which wont shoe on a wd40 test, but well You may just be a hair lean if those don't all show nothing out of the ordinary.

Cool.

Usually I cut through the grass to my parking spot next to the front door at work.  Today, genius decides to try and stay on the sidewalk like I do when I ride my little bike.  Managed to fall over, break my clutch lever and bar end.  Felt like an idiot. Bar end did its job though and kept fairings from touching the cement,...

Yea show,.... went home at lunch and got another lever, came back to work and put it on.  On the way home at 5, my peg felt weird and the place where the rearset bolts on was bent also.  Booooo.  Last night bfh and then welded some 1/2 spacers on to make it right.  Ran a tap through the holes, hit it with some satin all in one primer/paint then put all back together and,....

Thanks show.  You're so inspiring :icon_mrgreen:

Heard some rattling and turned out my 'custom' kat fender cracked.  I ignored it for about a week and a 40 mile ride made it obvious it needed attention.  Took it off to find,...




cracked pretty good

tire rubbing on it on the bumps


Did some plastic welding after hot staples.



quick shot of satin black.  This paint is great cause it's easy to fix any spots and not have to blend it in or worry about it too much.


Put on some new levers to replace my broken/mismatched pair
