geez! all I wanted to do was ride some...
The carb cleaner spray and sea foam seemed to be helping the sputtering, but bike still won't start without charger on... bought a vom to check the r/r per the "fault finding flow chart"... but I didn't read the part about setting the vom at the 100 ohm range, the one i got only goes down to 200 ohms, so I really don't know what Iím reading on the scale...I started the bike with the r/r unplugged (on the charger) the bike seemed to be running smoother...after a short break I was gonna start it again but discovered gas (lots of it) dripping out of the back carb...shut off the petcock but it started leaking, so pulled the tank and set it so no gas was running out...so with 2 strikes I decided to go for 3...moved on the next known problem, speedo cable broken off inside speedometer receiver, following corbins guide, pulled the wheel off found the speedo receiver was fried crisp and no way was it coming apart, oh and the wheel bearings were powder dry... couldn't find the right "special tools" to pull the wheel bearings to re-pack them... STRIKE THREE!
Went to the hammock with a tall glass of ice tea... tomorrow has to be a better day.
If you want to console me or give advice, please, please do.
