A week to ride!

So the weather is finally looking good, 62 is the high for today, mid 40's-50 most of the week, thurs and friday gets back down into the 30's but back up into the 40's next weekend, so it looks like this week will be a week for riding . Recently got done painting my bike matte black, switched out the stock bars for clubmans and did the ear shave, started her up yesterday to sync the carbs and found out either i didn't have the jet housing tightend down enough or the orings are bad causing it to leak gas(20 year old orings, gonna fail sooner rather than later if they are still good) ordered new orings and until they get here using some gas/fuel/chemical/water resistant sealant. Put that on lastnight and let it set and cure, so here in a bit gonna head out and starter her up and see how that gasket material does, get the carbs synced and if all looks good take her out for a spin today. I'll be posting some pics or maybe a video of Sayas new look sometime soon.

sadly i wont be able to enjoy this week of riding weather, that sealant wasn't as "gas resistant" as they would have you believe..... So Saya is out of commission until the jet housing o-rings come in.....
