SIngle carb ? if so pull it and shoot it to me
Worst set I eve did was on a honda 550 , 4 carbs linked and had been sitting for 15 or so yrs , I could describe how bad it was ....... but I would get the ban hammer .
SOme of the v-twin hondas ran 2 carbs and they are a real mofo too .

Carbs are fun.

Nope, 4 linked carbs, similar to my '73 CB750/4. I will get to it eventually. I will have to get another synchronizing tool to set them; I gave my last one away in Memphis.

Mm: I had AR cones on my 1200, they made it hard to tune right. If I ever get caught up I'll drag my old 73 Honda 350 out, it probably won't happen this year.

A man was in a bar all day and he had to use the bathroom. He was in there for a while, yelling, so the barmaid reluctantly went to the bathroom to check on him.
"Sir, what are you yelling about? You're scaring the customers."
"Every time I try to flush the toilet something keeps biting my balls!"
"Sir, please get off the mop bucket."

Josi frequently attends his church Bingo club, where every week a gag doorprize is given out. One week, Josi is presented with a toilet brush.
''What the hell is this?'' he asks the pastor.
''Why, it's a toilet brush.''
''Ooh, I see,'' says Josi. A couple weeks later, the pastor jokingly asks Josi how the brush is working.
''Well, it's okay, but I think I'll go back to using toilet paper.''

Would those be the predecessor to the magna? I came damn close to buying a magna last year. The situation with the ex prevented it.

Have you ever freaking heard of chain lube?

Oh yeah, I'm asking this of the guy who wears his tires down to the air inside.


Seriously dude, get some chain lube. Give it a squirt ever few 'thou and it will last a long, long time. Running your chain like that is robbing horsepower big time...


(Now rethinking the wisdom of telling Mobilemarine how to get more HP out of his Harley...)
