    • It’s a wrap. Small turnout but had a great time. Dave Hannigan led the tour of the trike shop, did some riding, saw a little history of the area, lots of eating, and tons of visiting and laughing. It was pretty windy but good weather until rain Saturday evening when we just sat in the pavilion and talked. It was good to catch up some since it’s been two years. Thanks to all that attended and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. With retirement around the corner I’ll have time to plan next year a little bigger and maybe a few days longer if interest and attendance warrants it. 
      I didn’t take pictures so hopefully y’all will share yours.

      Take a look at the header gaskets on the heads. My 83 had leaks there and it smoked and caused decel popping until I fixt it.

      OK, good to know. is that a horrid.job?

      I found a couple little things would have a bit to do with fuel consumption ..

      (1)  The left hand side Exhaust was plugged

      (2) The motor start valve on one carburetor would not shut off ..

      ( 3)  The choke lever would not return it to the off or back in to the  run position  ..

      (4) The plugs in the engine now are not NGK  and I may replace all the plug wires 

       

      Yep, for sure would make a difference in fuel mileage.

      Thanks! - Unfortunately, while the tires are basically new.. they were new in about 2014. So they are OLD. They are also very cracked. So no road tests yet. 

      And yes, next up is brakes. I have a front brake but it is marginal (although i am comparing to a GSXR race bike and my 2020 Katana - so that's a tough comparison. I suspect I've got some work to do there, especially in the back. I don't feel any rear brake at all at the moment. 

      Forgot to mention, some of the exhaust smoke is me using some ethanol free 2 stroke gas to keep it well lubed. However, i am seeing a lot of smoke at the rear of the motor... so i think it needs a good clean up. (lots of oil from previous leaks)

      have to say though... that motor does sound good. :)
