Aww, come on Tod, they are just checking the smoothness/ total rotational travel of the slides, just to make sure that they aren't hanging up.
Or maybe racer's nervous twitch.

throttle pumps

OK, The battery's under the seat (Balistic 8 cell) and the carbs I believe do have pumps as they are fcr flatslides and not stock. There is no choke. I think that's what my mechanic said. He told me to pump it twice on start up. Most people on here said I wouldn't be able to run these carbs, he said no problem, so hmm. You saw it run right?

Wow, Mark! VERY NICE!

Maybe we can get together sometime after the holidays; would love to see your bike in the flesh!

Seriously good looking bike. Going to take a lot of work to keep it that way.
