    Where is everybody ?

    It is slow around here recently, I'm certainly guilty of reading and not commenting; I think I am not the only one... I see the regulars posting more infrequently as well. I'm not making a value judgment, simply commenting on the pattern I see. Summer is upon us, though in our pluged in world...

    New water cooled Bonneville spotted

    I like the "no kink" exhaust. Yeah the radiator looks stupid, but so does the oil one our the current bikes. 1100cc would be a blast...

    creeping decrepitude

    Here ya go, true story. I was touring around England about 5 years ago and went on the tower tour at Ely Cathedral up 300+ steps to the roof. I was talking to the chap who was leading the tour about his job leading the tours; he mentioned that he use to have debilitating arthritis in his knees...

    bar control issue

    Lach - Periodically I have gotten annoyed with my stock hand controls, especially when running a custom harness and M-unit (that was a good bad idea as it turns out). I have researched, though about it and looked some more for years now. What I really want is the look of cable hand controls...

    Finally changed my main jets - what to look out for?

    Yeah I'm not surprised you never had popping on overrun with the 42s in, that set up looks like it would be rich at idle and partial throttle to me. The shims are just spacers I don't think it matters which side is up or down, I would just be consistent in which way I placed them. The shimming...

    Finally changed my main jets - what to look out for?

    Yeah the overrun popping is just a little leaning out which, from what I have read, having a little is fine. If you have the air injection system still installed the popping will be worse. Seems like most get rid of the AI and have occasional popping on overrun. The K&N and the snorkel out...

    Finally changed my main jets - what to look out for?

    The stock answer to all jetting questions is "you should check out jenks bolts tuning guide." The needles you had in there were definitely dyno jet. With staintunes and an intact airbox I would absolutely go back to 40 pilots, stock needles, no shims(maybe one shim but start with none), and as...
