The last photo is my bike so my friend can remember what they are supposed to look like
One thing I did notice is even with the bike stripped all the way down, the carb is still a bitch to get to!!

I just tore mine appart to rebuild the engine and tranny, what I always do is buy a big box of small ziplock bags and separate all the bolts by area and label the bags with a permanent marker, works well every time. Also use blue locktite (242) on all the little nuts and bolts, saves on losing bolts, don't use red (262) as you'll strip the threads on the little bolts when you try and get them off next time.
Thanks for the tip w/ the loctite. Guess we need to buy a torque wrench also.

I wish I had the ability to perform maintenance at that echelon. Sucks relying on shops for anything other than oil and filter changes.
we're by no means motorcycle mechanics. It's just a matter of not wanting to pay a shop mega bucks to rebuild his bike-so you just get in there and do it. Bet u could if u had too

What my buddy is trying to say is that, I just made my 1st payment on this bike about a week and a half ago. The doctor bills are going to equal out to the cost of the bike. were going the cheap way!!!!!
