Are you running stock air boxes with modified carbs?

Stock air boxes.....and you should recognize those carbs, especially that polished plate!

Hey AZ, go find some CJ air boxes or at least the covers!  They have nice smooth round surface without the bolts right in the middle of them and they should just bolt right in for your bike. Might take some more paint but they are worth it IMHO. Did that exact thing to mine and love it. Plus I think it makes it sound a little throatier.

I put some pics up on the show and shine if you want to look... Not post whoring or anything. ;)

That may be a problem, I modified them to use with K&N filters  ;D
 They could be a little lean mid range with stock airbox? (of course, it could also be better than stock  :o )
 Pull plugs and post a picture  ;)
 BTW, just went back and downloaded pics to enlarge them.
It looks pretty damn good   8)

Thanks Peter. I love how it turned out. Just want to ride the damn thing!!

I pulled plugs last night and had a nice light brown/amber color. I believe that is ok? I will get pics up tonight.

You guys on this forum have been a wealth of knowledge and help. I appreciate it.

Thanks to Frogmans info on using CJ side covers, I picked a couple up, blasted them and painted/cleared them today. I think I got them to match the frame color pretty good. Had to do a little modifying along the top to get them to fit. If I didn't have the tabs on the frame there would have bolted right on. It was between the grey or black color. I wanted grey. Thought it tied in with the frame better and doesn't stick out.

Also rebuilt my master cylinder so decided to polish it all up the best I could while it was off.
