Godspeed to you on the mend....

CP- Hoping for your speedy recovery. It's just not the same around here without your avatar looming about.

Holy cow!!

I've been in a dakar coma (the state, not the Mark) for the past week and just came upon this.

Sure am happy that you are on the mend. What you have contributed here at ADV, as well on the mean streets of LA slaying the dragon, speaks volumes as to what kind of man that you are.

Thank you for all that you have done and best wishes battling through your health issues.

Laugh

I'm baaack. Well sorta. Just have my Droid right now. Just wanted to let you all know that I felt your prayers and good vibes during my latest down time for repairs. If I'd have known that I was going to last this long, I'd have done a bit more pm in the past. I tried but couldn't find a up to date HOW on my model so fixing myself wasn't working, though I tried to for a couple of days. Finally, I decided to go into an independent tech to let them have a go. They looked around and found an old repair manual and someone with access to a HOW. That covered my old model year (47).

Turns out that along with some TSB's that hadn't been done, I had a bad part that had to be removed. As we have found with our ninefiddys and nineties, it was a factory part that wasn't needed and just made the rest of me run bad, so they removed it (gallbladderectomy).

I still wasn't firing on both cylinders and had some intermittent flutter at certain throttle openings, so I had a different tech do some reprogramming of my ECU. Not sure, but I think he may have used a version of TuneECU.

Everything seems to be working well now. Starts on first try and idles smoothly. Haven't run it hard yet as the techs said to break back in fairly easy. Ha! Like I've ever followed that recommendation :-P I've got some long rides planned for the spring and summer so we'll see what kind of repair job they did.

Thank you all for the huge outpouring of wellwishes and prayers. I am truly overwhelmed and humbled. Seeyall on the trail.

Thumb Colorado CPModem ride

Well I say we pick the most advantageous dates for a LC8 ride this summer, "centrally located" in Colorado for a giant meet & greet with CP

- Pikes Peak weekend? Or would tht be too much of a sideshow & not enough riding?

- Full Moon weekend?

- Moab or other National Parks?

I'm already letting the boss-man know... be prepared

Come on guys & gals, make some suggestions!

Glad you're back...

Got some damn fuggly images in full gory color the doc took from the inside and closeups of the failed part on the tray after removal. Not something that I'd subject the Forum to though.

Do it. This forum likes gore. Can't be worse than the aftermath of a backed out clutch bolt.


Glad you're better.
