I was using 2 clip master links so I could swap a 13 to 15 and I have no idea witch way they where facing I think from now on I will only use the rivet style and swap between a 14 and 15 front sprockit.

Cool, I'm ordering my 4 gal Clarke tank in the AM from Rocky Mtn.

Have you rejetted your carb yet (Dave's mods)? I did mine last week and the bike hauls ass now (like a big bore should)! I went with a 55 pilot, 165 main and 2.25 turns out on the mixture screw.

I bought 4 mm Hex head screws for the slide and float covers and tossed the Phillips head screws!

Come to think of it, there was some kind of warning in the instructions not to use that windshield off road. Although I didn't really go offroad, until I crashed.

Yeah I did Daves mod, pulled the silencer and snorkel, I should put the hex screws on cuz the phillips are getting chewed up. I'll swap them next time I clean the carb, Thanks for the idea!

We all hit the dirt sooner-or-later. I hit it so often I'm thinking of changing from rruugger to Sir Crashalot.
