Finally running strong!
Well after a spline lube, new battery, ear shave (kinda), new seals on forks, stator mod, ignition coils, start coil, regulator, oil change, new fuel lines, meanstreak seat, new rear blinkers, and lower shocks (it doesn't sound like much when I list it).
My ride is finally riding properly. I still have to get rid of the air box and do the coaster mod (finish the ear shave) put new exhaust and re jet / rebuild carbs, and figure out where a small oil leak is coming from (seems to be coming from the bottom of the housing of the stator). Maybe give a try at a paint job over the winter (that sounds like a lot more work when I list it), but I am happy and rolling down the road with no problems. So I cannot complain.
Thanks to everyone for the help, It has all been very much appreciated! I will post pictures of my ride after I do the coaster mod. Hopefully this weekend or next.
