Just been reading some Stephen Hawking quotes, liked this one in particular

I was literally just doing the same exact thing.

I found this one from his AMA on Reddit:
"Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution."

Just edited to add some more. Got to be 50+ years worth of notable quotes from him
You may like this one (or are you reading the same C-Net article?)
"I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image."

At present, 'machine owners' are 'winning'

Not sure how many people read this but I have to change my recommendation on JBM diaphragms.
I do a LOT of CB360 carbs, several CB350 carbs and a few CB450 carbs (solid piston so no diaphragms)
Anyway, long and short of it.
Problem with new diaphragm, guarantee 30 days even if it wasn't fitted to slide.
I machine the step off slide as I heard a few people had diaphragms split and it was 'accepted' as due to bad fitting procedure. I know how to fit these things, no idea how many I've used over the years (at least several dozen, maybe more?)
Contacted Paul at JBM, sent pictures of a pretty strange failure (split top and bottom at centre donut but not all the way through?) Initially very abrupt, calmed down and checked name/address I gave him ( by accident the wrong one)
Seems 30 days is as long as they last though so I can't recommend them any longer.  The slides never got fitted into carb bodies, sitting on desk for about 10 days after fitting, no where near window and office not used much maybe 2~3 hrs, 3~4 times a week so not a UV or chemical issue
Genuine Honda are crazy expensive but you will get a better guarantee - many of te original 1974 diaphragms are still working fine so obviously better quality

JBM relies on the mold to heat the rubber.  They use uncured rubber sheet that they cut up into chunks and fill the molds.  I wonder if they're getting flow marks or back-rinding from not working with ground rubber.

Interesting.
That probably explains why the 'thick' section split from top down and bottom up but doesn't 'meet in the middle'
 It would make more sense to explain to people that the diaphragms have a 'shelf life' of 'X' hours after fitting and need a temperature 'set' when in place? I used to fit all carbs to my 378 to check they worked as expected but for various reasons stopped doing it. May be why I never used to have problems with JBM diaphragms? It would be dead easy to heat to around 210f for a minute or two so they could conform to slide if thats all that was needed?
 Of course, it's much easier to say SOL,  buy some more but without knowing why the original failed that ain't going to happen (plus, I think it should be a warranty 'faulty part')
 I'm not te only person who has had issues with JBM guarantee process though which is why I can't recommend them any longer and won't be using them again.
 As Bush junior said, fool me once shame on you wtf comes next?  ;D

After a week of sitting on bench I finally tried to fit battery to Katana. I got he wrong one - its for 1997, so doesn't fit. About 3/8" too long on the long side. FUCK.
Oh well, it will work on 360 as I intended to re-locate a physically larger 8A/Hr under swing arm (the 'cap pack' is going on 'Blue bike' with maybe a 4A/Hr, depending on how well lights, indicators, etc work))

I only ever change the reg/rect for a more modern one, often it's used one from 1990's~early 2000's. I haven't had any of the charging issues that seem 'common' to other people so haven't bothered to fit different stators or rotors although I am thinking about drilling a rotor and fitting some neodymium magnets to get higher output

Got proper battery for a 1995 Katana Saturday, filled it up, let it stand then put it on charge.
Couldn't do much of anything all weekend, Jaxon's 'other' grandparents' didn't pick him up  Sunday (they only have him about 60~90 minutes)
Anyway, yesterday got to go for a 'proper' ride for first time in about a year.
 Didn't go far but rush hour traffic always makes things 'more interesting'
 Almost got taken out by an older JEEP (square body, 4 door) changing lanesbut I kinda 'spotted' him so accelerated out the way.
Playing 'fast and loose' at up to 80mph (in 40 limit) in traffic back and forth across 3~4 lanes to stay in the gaps was something I really needed
Only about 11 miles total, maybe 20 minutes but it was something I really needed.
