Many of us use Yamabond 4.

It's a silicone product useful for gasket surfaces, etc.

I don't see the need to use it on fork seals unless the mating surface is badly scratched. The perimeter of...

Two Months- Wow!

Yikes! I'm shocked it could gum up in 2 months. I've awakened all my bikes this year, even though it's still snowing in Detroit. I didn't have any casualties.

Hopefully that Pine-sol will solve...

Carb Cleaner

I like Berryman's for said purpose.

How did the bike sit? I leave my bikes for 4-5 months during winter without draining the fuel bowls and have not had problems (yet).

I have fat aftermarket grips on two bikes and skinny factory grips on three of my bikes.

I like the skinny grips because I can get to WOT more easily.

I can picture that impeccable SECA in the NC curves already. It's really noteworthy.

I hope to have a chance to ride with you this year.

Thanks for dropping in to say 'hello'.

Just a couple other things

The LH engine cover (over the pick up coils) seems like an '82.

The square headlight comes with the fairing bit I'm used to the round one on the Specials.

Ohhhhh... that clip.

I always tear "that damn rubber boot" and have to buy a rebuild kit just to get a new boot.

Seal-all is good stuff

I use Seal-All semi-regularly.

It's the best product when gas is involved.

I think weatherstripping glue might be better for your job. Seal-All sticks well to almost anything, but it can peel...
