She is one lucky lady indeed. That was a nasty crash.
Parellel,sure you dont have a mild dose of OCD :biggrin:. Sorry mate, that pic just reminded me of the old Pink Floyd vid. "The Wall" when he was tripping out in the motel room and lined everything up all over the floor. Good to see you taking care, because carbs can be fiddley. The old XS will look great when you get it all back together, cant wait to hear it going, your dad would be proud. I bet he is sitting back with a big grin on his face right now. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:It's FINALLY time to reassemble these Mikuni MK2 Carbs and get them ganged together and installed so I can see if this bike is even going to run. With luck I'll be posting a video of the first start up tomorrow night.
Yep, they sure do need to be sync'd. Right now I have them "bench sync'd", but once I get the jetting right I'll sync them using a set of vacuum sync sticks.Do those carbs need to be sync'd? Only reason I ask is because a year or so ago I was considering a carb'd ural and they had to have their carburetors sync'd, although I think it had something to do with them being an antiquated boxer.
Got that right.Thanks y'all. There is a concern that with the float not shutting down the flow of fuel and that fuel coming out of the air filter that there's a possibility of a gasoil condition. For those who do not know, gasoil occurs when gas gets past the piston and mixes with the engine oil in the crankcase thereby breaking down the lubricating properties and destroying the motor by seizing bearings. Yesterday morning I checked and I couldn't really tell if the level had risen nor could I definitively say I could smell gas in the oil. However, out of an abundance of caution I went ahead and did an oil and filter change. Better to be safe than sorry.
