Great day on the newly painted bike.
Did about 50 miles or so, cruising around. Some rice burner with a big exhaust played with me on 23, we took off.... I was in first looked over, laughed, he looked at me and laughed cause he knew he did not have a chance I think. Got it into 2nd and took off, bike feels great, pulls nice. I think giving the front cyl exhaust valves a smaller shim helps keeping those valves closed.
Pulls good in all gears. Just got to re-mount saddle bags and wind screen - riding season is here.
