3/14/2011 Happy Pie (3.14) Day

Played with it a bit today and last week.

-Got a new battery
-Cleaned out the carbs a couple times. Probably will be doing it agian with help from the compresed air at the bus garage.
- Got the Bulbs in the dashboard all squared away so they go to the right indicators. Found out I have low oil.
- Head light/tail light/blinkers all work.


Wierdest thing happened on Saturday. I tried to fire it up (like I had been for a while now) and it would fire on both cylinders, just very slowly. Like boom, half a second, boom, half a second, boom, ETC. Very consistently. I'm hoping the low oil pressure/oil volume in the engine may be the culprit. I was stupid enough not to check that yet.

I'll be ordering a Used radiator off Ebay sometime this week. Slicks in mason didn't have one at thier store and the only bike they could pull it off was in a very wet field I guess. I'll be going back there for a clutch lever pretty soon. They are great guys there, If you ever need parts, they know thier stuff.
