Brother Down

A fellow biker brother went down over the weekend and is in serious condition with head injuries that has required the doctor to remove part of his skull do to brain swelling. He's at a hospital in Illinois. Please pray for Justin McMullen and his family. I first met Justin at R4YL2 and found him to be a stand up guy.
Get well soon brother!

Kawasaki Build update

Life has beat me down lately so instead of wollering in self pity I decided to keep movin on the 650 build. I received the new main jet holders and after installing them it seemed to do the trick. I can now start it with either the electric start or by kick starting. The motor still idles too high so I'll dig into that later.
This weekend I removed the wiring,lights,pipes and got the bike down to the frame, motor and wheels. Still not real sure the direction the bike is leading me to re-make her.I will have have to sit down again,grab a few beers and smoke some cheap cigars and stare at her for awhile. I may even ask her what she wants. If she actually answers me I'll know I've had a little too much to drink! But then again maybe that's what I need! Here's how th ol girl sits for now.......

Carbs Carbs Carbs

Over the past few weeks I've been trying to get the 650 Kawasaki running. I've clean the carbs and tried syncin them a couple times and it just didnt run correctly. I pulled the carbs back off and recleaned them for the 3rd time. I noticed when I took the jets out that two of the main jet holders looked bent. As I looked closer my thoughts were confirmed. I have no idea how I missed them the past two times but I did. I jumped on ebay and ordered a couple of main jet holders and hopefully this will cure the problem. What was happening was that the carb needle that slides into the main jet was not seating properly. Live and learn I guess.
