Since the mufflers are off, might as well change the clutch springs (preventative).
Since all those side covers are off, might as well paint the engine.
Engine looks so good I should put some of those shiny bits I been hoarding, er, gathering.
Now my weekend is over, and I still need to put a ton of parts back on. I need a winter for my winter mods.
I'll have pics when it's back together. I know ya'll love pics.
Finally got this back together. As promised, PICS.
Now I need to work on the Black-powder-coating-on-the-fork bits

Added lowers to help with buffeting... and I can't seem to find a way to rotate the image after upload.

Got new locks for my LeatherLyke bags and put them back on. Put a stock taillight cover back on. Added a spring and washer to rear brake caliper to hopefully help reduce rattle.

Must be spring. I did the same last weekend. Started riding south along the river, knew from radar that I had only about 30-40 minutes if I wanted to stay dry. Just "lost track of time"? Actually, just way too much fun just rolling along nice and easy... soaked. Worth it.

Added my little Pop Top sport shield I had on the wall today. Pretty scratched up, but I've got a "like new" one on the way from eBay. Was just testing fit with some brackets I modified to fit. Added stock taillight cover couple days ago, much better.

Replace my Cobra Dragsters with Cobra Speedsters for a better and deeper sound.
