+1 I like those old fairings, hate the GL of the same era but those I like. That's a very quick bike, but a pain to get at the carbs etc.

Nah, there's methods.  I can pull them in about 10 minutes.  Feel free to PM me if you want the nitty gritty on pulling and reinstalling them.  I don't use the "ratchet strap" method.  Also, when you go through them, the emulsion tubes are different front/rear, main jets MIGHT be different front/rear and Slide springs ARE different front/rear.  Otherwise, they are nice carbs overall.

Just got this in.  It's bigger and a better manual than expected.   Handy.  I dig tech manuals.  For my FXR.

Going to try to get a truck to pick this up next week. If I can't find one reasonable, I'll drive up and trailer it back to the shop. I've been wanting something with 12K RPM, this has 15K.
