Airhead tech day at this guy's house

Hey guys and gals,

Decided to host a tech day at my house (Atlanta) next Saturday, November 17th.

There will be plenty to work on and plenty of tools.
I know my big plan is to re-assemble the r75 /5. All the seals and gaskets are waiting and everything is pulled off, just about.

Bring your bikes, we'll do some maintenance on them. I've got stuff for timing, oil changing, carb sync etc.

I'll see about getting some drinks up in the fridge as well.

Anyone have a preferred or best time?

I'll bring some beer. I've got a small plate for installing the rear main if you don't have one.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Bul in person! Thanks for hosting!

Ooo yes, bring that if you don't mine. I have the new rear main ready to install.

I will drink your beer, and provide comic relief.

See you there!

It's a trap

Guys, the only reason he's hosting this is so he can get his own bike running right.

Having said that I wish I could be there, it's gotta be something simple, the tough ones usually are.
Maybe you can briefly swap carbs with a known good set and see if the problem moves to the other bike and disappears from yours.
If it does, ride it like you stole it........oh wait, you're hosting, bummer.

We definitely aren't touching the r90....she's in time-out
I'll probably fiddle with her this weekend on my own time. I prefer to be productive and not beat everyone's head against a wall haha.

I was actually being serious, get a carb off a good running bike and swap it out with yours. if the problem travels you know it's the carb. If it doesn't you get to look elsewhere.
Also a good time to tighten the intake spigots.

Wish the ride from Athens to Atlanta and vice versa wasn't so soul crushing. Would be nice to come say hi. You atlanta folks seem pretty swell haha.

We can yank the carbs off my bike and put it on yours. I don't mind. I still haven't synced my carbs.....and I've had the bike for 4 years. I've sanked my carbs a few times though Does that count?

Hey , let me know if anyone needs any airhead parts for the tech day. I'm organizing Nathan's attic and I'm up to my knees in parts, anything. Only working there tomorrow this week. I can bring it and you can pay then. Let me know asap!
