got a chance this past week to do some painting.. so I sanded down the 920 tank and got to work.. I decided instead of doing the raw/silver look on the side, to go a little darker with a gunmetal look. and im pretty happy with it. was definitely a budget job so its not perfect, but oh well. Richard has some badges for the sides as well that ill be putting back on. almost finished and ready for a good before/after shot.

I rode this thing down a dirt road like two weeks ago.. not a great idea.

;D I'm full of not great ideas.

Seriously though...you'd be suprised how well it works on and off road with 50/50 dual sport tires.

man that is such a tight pic. I was on like loose gravel/sand type surface so that was a little hairy.. but I think dirt or just some hard surface off roading would be alright.. assuming I remembered to replace all the cotter pins and the wheels don't fall off.

well after a quick shot down near kalamazoo, MI to meet up with Richard and meet some of his acquaintances over at checkered past cycles, I got a chance to tinker a bit. I was talking with rich about how my bike falls on its face at higher rpms, and is slow as balls (slower than the usual virago balls) so I started by taking a look at the plugs.. they looked about the same color as the picture below. so I pulled the mystery single carb, that ive never opened to see what was going on in there.. I am fine everywhere else except up top, so im concerned with the main jet as of now. I pull it out and it had been drilled, to some random size I couldn't match.. so I drilled it bigger.. got back out there and did some runs. its roughly 90% throttle id say now, definitely more power. but still does the same shit.. so I plug chopped it down the road, for maybe like a constant 15 seconds. both plugs are white-ish. not as bad as the rear cylinder was originally before I did anything.. so how big can I drill this jet? it appears to be getting ridiculously big. should I worry about maybe cutting off some airflow from the snorkel intake I have on there?

yeah yeah yeah... this hunk of junk is still being daily ridden.. just don't understand whats going on with my fuel situation.. pulled the plugs again, and they are still white ish, which makes me uncomfortable.. I just don't wanna burn this thing down. so I pulled the carb once again, shimmed the needle one washer, (was all I had, or I would have done 2-3) and I drilled out another jet even bigger to get this thing to richen out. with no luck. went and did some plug chops, and around 90% throttle it dies out, let off the throttle and it comes right back. checked the plugs, still white. just not sure here. maybe I just should consider a sportster 883 carb and be done with it?

Jets R us .com if you havn't already ....I bet you could find a Sportster Carb at a flea market or yard sale for the same price as jets. Sounds kinda ridiculous that your running lean after drilling out the jet several times....Replace Jet with Garden Hose?

yeah the problem is when doing the carb swap into the single, then modifying it to supply enough fuel, they don't have jets large enough for sale.. so its drill bit type shit. idk.. I rode it to work this morning and it cruises very well, only having issues on the top end. maybe ill try the garden hose trick. lol.
