Mine is great for keeping the body warm but air hits the eyes. I can see how a RT would be comfortable in winter (ugly but comfortable)

I can't remember the last time I rode Schmidt but prob only a few weeks ago. Not riding for a while I realise how vibey the bars are so may look at that - any you other characters feel the airhead vibe ? Would out of synch carbs cause vibration as it seems to happen thru the rev range. I know 3500-4000 is trad a shaky place. Not worried but interested to see if I can ease it a bit.

Speaking about starter motors if mine is sticking occasionally would it root the starter motor teeth before the ring gear?
Pull it out & lube it. Not hard to do. Not the teeth though
