Only if you will explain RTE and CR....

This Sunday is not good for me but the following may be. I do have tomorrow afternoon off, otherwise my schedule is fully buggered.

Connie Mark,
Where do you want to Ride tomorrow, and what time? The Connie won't ride, but the KZ1000, just needs a bit O gas!

Sure!

RTE = Ride to Eat

CR = Castle Rock

As for scheduling...I'm off Sundays and Mondays...pretty much busy the other five days...week after would work for me...heck, any day off would!

Connie Mark,

I sadly have to go into work at around 9:30 in the a.m. That pretty well kills the morning. Probably done around 11:00. I do have plans for lunch at 1:30, so I may have spoken too soon. I will try to turn those lunch plans into dinner plans. My # is (3), 834, three sevens and a 2. Let's talk around 9:00 am if that works for you.

 So yesterday Monday the 14th a couple of us meet up and did a couple hundred miles  out in the Flats, 6K' in the Wind. All in all pretty decent day, with a bit of cruising at 80 or so.

 Checked the mileage of my first fill up, ride I did by myself a week or so ago. 46mpg on that ride which was up to 10K', and while I hadn't done the brake upgrade yet, so i didn't go into the corners real fast. I did run it a bit though, 80+ @ over 9K'.
 So I'll get another fill up after this last ride in a day or two. Hopefully taller windshield tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday.
 Pulled the Timing Rotor after checking the Factory setting, and increased it to the extra 4 degrees, so now 14-39 curve. While I was there i pulled the T-chain tensioner for a look see, all good so I just re-set it and re-installed.
 Then 1 of the shift linkage Ball Joints was getting loose, so i got a couple of new Heim Joints and a bit of hardware to redo the linkage. Nice and tight now-$8. Popped on a Vista Cruise Thumb Lock as well for the straights. I have one on the KZ and really like it.
 Have to have another ride at least before any other changes to the tuning.

 Decided to do the Overflow tubes Today, as it was easy and cheap. Like $4 for enough Brass Tube to do 5 sets of carbs. It is really easy for those who believe they are capable. There is a good write up here: http://web.ncf.ca/ag136/floatDrainTubes.htm by one of the members here.
 I also set up the Float Bowls with different hardware, long Socket Head Cap Screws, 40mm, with a lock-nut/ washer that works like the Head of the Original screw. So once loosened the head works as a thumb wheel. So the bowls come off a lot easier if needed.
 The 25" Clear View windshield I bought off of a member here showed up Today in the Mail, it's mounted but I will give it a ride tomorrow. Hopefully it will be better than the Stocker for wind around buffeting and noise around the Helmet. The Buffeting at 80+ was great from the stock shield. I'm over 6'.
