Rode bike to work today, lost right mirror (I knew those expander plugs were crap)
 Had a load of fun though.
 Running pretty damn good, capable of more than keeping up with traffic  ;)
 Coming home was even more fun, had to do at least 70 so I didn't get run over and, it's safer to be doing 5~10mph more than traffic to stay safe  8)
I filmed it all with Go-Pro but I really will have to edit it down to manageable bits, two 25 min films are too much.
 still haven't painted frame for bike #1, having too much fun with bike #2 at present (plus, due for surgery next week, getting in some riding while I can)

Finally got out of Orlando and onto open road.
Did the 'clock' no more numbers  ;D (admittedly, downhill)
Very stable, felt a lot slower than whatever was showing. (just felt a bit windy  ;) )
 Bit more than 100 miles with clip-on's and rear-sets, feel OK, neck a bit stiff, back is better than it was before I started
I'll see if anyone in riding group has pics  8)

Clock on a 360 is 110...  That's a fast bike, man.

Not full throttle yet, still accelerating.
Extra 22cc makes a lot of difference

Nice.  This is really making me want to finish mine up.  I just started wiring yesterday...

Any guess on compression on yours?  Static compression on mine is going to be running right about 10:1 on my 378.

Don't know, don't care.
 Static compression is actually a bit meaningless, dynamic compression is what counts.
 I usually just check cold cranking compression, if it's over 225psi on my gauge I fit a thicker base gasket and run 93 octane  ;D
 Gauge probably isn't as accurate as it should be but I've used the same one for over 25 yrs with same results on cars and bikes
probably around 10.5~11:1 C/R, (maybe  a bit more or less?) it doesn't knock or ping so I'm not worried

 Ah, but they are stock bodies with some strategic holes and modified 'brass'.
 Needles and slides are completely stock, I tried opening up lift holes and didn't like results, although they would probably work on a 360 motor. I'm going to drill them out further and tap for different size air plugs
 Float level is 1mm higher than stock.
 The real point is, you don't need to spend $300.00+ on VM 30/32 when you can make stock carbs work. I fitted a set without replaceable air jets, now I know it works, I'll modify anyone's CB360 stock carbs, even those with pressed in jets (for a fee  ;) )
