BTW, I've been meaning to tell you. I think you might have something of a rarity in that fairing. Would like to see more pictures of that set up.
I'll be bringing the bike home in a little over 2 weeks. My buddy will get back from AIT and want to get on with the trade I suppose. I couldn't get it to run myself, but I'm told it does. The owner wasn't there when I looked to help me out. Seems like just a clogged jet or old gas. No known problems aside from the fuel stuff. I'll definitely need POR15 for the tank. Mileage is 52,000 miles.

It does certainly seem like the fairing is hard to come by, but I don't know if that means anyone will want the thing. I kinda like it and I've read it was the best of the best for its purpose, but I'm not so sure it'll stay with me.

Also now that I think about it, my buddy slapped together one of the yardstick synchronisers, so I suppose that might work for me. I'm used to 4 cylinders so much that it never occurred to me.
Some things shouldn't be left like you found them.
