Okay, here's where she stands: The good news
(that's not a good start to any sentence is it?) from the boot between the front carb and the cylinder. BUT a little tightening of the bands fixed
Rear brake is fine
, now that I've lined up the appropriate marks.
Cinched down the bolt
on the crankcase
- that stopped that leak
. It just wasn't on very tight.
The bad news
Reloaded the front ACCT one more time, just in case that was the problem. Still have a pretty good slap
going on in there, so that's another job for another day.
Still can't get my throttle cables
right. Now they're binding, so I'm going to go in and see what's happening in the right control housing.
AND there's some slight leak around the top gasket of the rear cyl
...can't tell if it's coolant (drawing up the pipe) or oil. There wasn't a problem there when I first bought the bike, so I'm inclined to think I've got a bad o-ring on the coolant pipe or something along those lines.
Oh, one more thing: I was checking my battery charge, just to see if any part of Orleans is cooperating, and the charge is good. 12.89 volts engine off; 14 v engine at 5K rpm. That said, I am developing a white deposit on the negative battery
terminal. I know that can't be a good sign....
