Block the vacuum hole, remove diaphragm and spring, make a gasket the size of the cover and screw it back down.

Hereís a few more photos. The last one is where it sets now, at the shop. Btw, if anyone ever goes through Richmond be sure and check out Engine and Frame. They have a community garage with anything you need.

Seems easy enough, but Iím curious about the trade off. One thing for sure, the cut offs ainít getting cheaper

I did it on an XL, so I can't say for your bike.  No performance gain, though.

Hey man.  I'm fairly local to you, I live down in Chester.  That's a nice bike, and great work you're doing so far.  If I can be of any help, let me know.  I have a garage, lift, tools, you name it.  I'd be happy to help!

Nice! I appreciate the offer! May take you up on that some day! We moved here about a little over a year ago, and itís been great. Last bike trip I rode all of Skyland drive to blue ridge, then took blue ridge to the Smokey mts. Man, I got caught in some weather tho

Good Report!
Pulled the carbs again. I must have tossed the stock jets, because they werenít in my kit. I did have 70s and 100s, so I threw those in. Stock is 68/98, so thatís not too far off. I did the right thing and ran gas through the carbs before mounting them. This way I got a good seat on all the float needles. Mounted the carbs, changed the plugs, and reset the timing. Bike fired up first bump! Got a perfect sync on the carbs, and itís idle is great.
Now the only thing left is wiring up the lights, and Iíll be on the road.

Sweet.

I know, right! After talking it over, I was pretty sure it was the spark plugs. Then the carbs, Iíve been suspicious of them since the last time I pulled them out
