Jealous! I'm only 35 now. Hoping to be retired at 55.
Have some investments in real estate, some in RRSP (401k equivalent) and new job comes with a government pension ...... so hoping it should be enough by 55 to say "see ya later".
Damn, man. That sucks after all that time getting everything buttoned up.
That is really strange given your inline filter. I would expect a cheap one to have cracked and leaked before it remained tight but let flakes of rust through. Doesnt add up.
Wonder if there is a chance the line...
Did you not install any kind of filter?
After realizing what a pain 4 carbs are, and not wishing to do it again any time soon, i put the strainer filter on the petcock and an inline fuel filter downstream a bit.
The bike looks BEAUTIFUL! Really well put together. Just great.
The seat came out...
Very cool thread!
How does your truck do pulling that? Looks like a rather large trailer for it.
Also, what is the benefit of the 5th wheel trailers? Is it just because you get that bit of extra space above the bed of the truck?
I know it would probably tow better sitting over the axle as...
"Fluid appearing in the reservoir"
Hmm .... Were you trying to pump ALL of the brake fluid in the reverse manner?
I poured brake fluid in, did conventional bleed until I got fluid at the calipers. Stopped. Did reverse bleed (slowly!) until bubbles stopped coming up at the master and the fluid...
Cool. Do you make sure it is ethanol free gas? I heard Chevron 91-94 is supposed to be 100% ethanol free?
I have some stabil that's like 3 years old. Wonder if stabil itself can go bad? Lol
Hey what's your "winterizing" procedure for the cold Montreal? Or do you just run it every so often?
To be honest I let my Honda ATV sit for months and never really take good care of it and it always fires up just fine. Lol.
X2 .... I'm waiting for the voluntary lay off option. If that one is as lucrative as the involuntary lay offs, I could potentially walk away with 8-9 months severance. Full pay. That sure would be nice.
Would think of something else in the mean time. I really hate the job at this point and most...
With choke! Ran right away (struggling) for 3-4 seconds and died. Then I did half choke and a tiny bit of throttle and it fired right up and continued to run.
I am OK with this as the starting procedure. It was pretty quick.
I feel like a moron ... for not trying this.
I just went out, gave it 5 twists and got the bike running from cold in about 10-15 seconds.
I honestly dont have an answer for why I didnt try this. I guess just too long since I've last owned a carburated bike *shrug*
I didnt have magnet handy and when my car is in the garage, in addition to bike, ATV, 2 strollers and a pile of hunting gear, there isnt much room for me to wiggle to the work bench lol!
I'll give it a test in a couple days.
Thanks for the kind words!!
The only thing I might do is take out the screws he used one by one and replace with stainless ones, maybe add small washers under each one as well.
Looks like he glued and screwed it in. His english is very bad so he wasnt able to answer if they were stainless or...
