Haven't ridden this bike much this past summer.  Fixed the water pump and one or two other minor adjustments and it sat a bit while I played with the KLR and the ZRX.  I tried to start it up today and it pissed fuel all over itself.  Probably time to pull the carbs for another look.  I never tried to sync them and I remember they need that too.  I have been collecting new bits and thinking about this sexy beast a lot more lately.

The new bits.

Its a YEC style cable actuated assembly to replace the hydraulic slave cylinder.  I have the cable and I found a nice lever assembly from an R1 which will let me keep my purple lever.   Enough racers all say it's a better feel on the clutch lever so I wanted one for my build.  This is from Vinco Racing over in the Netherlands.

That's the first time I've seen that. There are a lot of cable to hydraulic conversions out there. Interested to hear about the differences first hand.

I won't get it on there right away.  I'm elbows deep in Commando stuff right now.  As far as the YZF goes, I may use this setup on the original yzf chassis I got to build into the 1000 beast.

You mean like this? 



Is that your FXR?

Yep, I have a shovelhead chopper too.  I like bikes.

I fired up the YZF today to see how it would wake up.  It took some ether but once running, carb 3 was pissing fuel out of the float bowl gasket so off they came.  I have a new set of oem bowl gaskets on the way and I'll give them a good cleaning while they are off.   I never did get around to syncing them last summer.  They are a pain because there aren't air nipples on the 1994' version of the intake manifolds.  I bought a set from a 97' awhile back but never got around to putting them so I got them installed today with fresh oem gaskets.  4 nipples.  It'll be much easier to get the sync hoses setup now.   I've got a set of the hoses on one of my parts bikes.

Agreed.  Not my favorite and these are known to be a bit finicky.
