Ahh there not that bad, at least they wear out slowly and don't just stop working one day like a CDI can, you can fix em enough to get you home.

I know. I'm sure they'll be fine. I think this thing only has ~15K miles on the clock so cant imagine there is that much wrong with it (famous last words, huh?).

Ha yep, 15k well cared for miles or 15k and never had an oil change?  At least it is small and simple.  Should be good. I want to get my wife interested in her own bike but she is just happy to ride on the back for now.

Another addition:



Cheap-o carb. Gonna test it out. $30 as opposed to the $80 something for an original with a rebuild. I might get lucky, who knows. Waiting on the right hand control and then a petcock but, I'm gonna try to find a Weed Whacker tank or something to use as a starter tank. Maybe this weekend....

Got in the right hand side control and it was beat to hell! One of the mounting holes was busted up and couldnt hold a screw. The killswitch was broken too! Luckily, I had some other switch parts lying around and was able to fraken-switch one together. Should get the pet cock in today and then need a keep to try to start it.

I'll have pics later.

Petcocky





Also, got our manual. Waiting on the ign switch and then, really, there is no reason why this bike cant be started... I mean... really.

Last night while I was bust tinkering with the 550, wifey wanted to get working on her ride. She asked me what needed to happen and I told her that the first thing was switching out the crummy old electrical clips. She got down with changing all the old ones to what we bought a few weeks back. Did a pretty good job too! She was complaint that her fingers were hurting, tho. ;)
