Airhead Techday Saturday August 24, Atlanta, Georgia

Howdy all,
I'm hosting an Airhead tech day on Saturday, August 24 in Atlanta Georgia.

1085 Victory Dr Sw Atlanta GA 30310

Starts: 9am - whenever we are tired of wrenching

I've never hosted a tech day, so I'm not sure what else to tell you other than bring your airhead, tools and favorite beer.

For the early arrivers, I'll be brewing coffee for anyone who wants it.

I have a tool chest with most common available tools including a flower nut wrench. If you have any specialty tools, please bring them.

Looking forward to it.

I've barely touched my bike in over a month. Mind if I tow it down and see if we can't make any progress on getting the carbs jetted?

I can't get a shop or even a private mechanic to come near this thing so I'm either figuring out these carbs on my own or taking a $200 loss when I switch to Mikunis.

I've gotten the bike around the block, so I can't be that far off, but damned if I know what to do next.

I'm in the same boat as you with my r90, Brad. I can get around the block but the jetting is so far off and I haven't touched it in a couple months. Might have to join you on that one.

I'm in unless something urgent last minute pops up! Been having a low idle stall issue I'd like some thoughts on and someone smarter than me to look over my shoulder occasionally if I do something based on those thoughts (whether mixture adjustment or valve adjustment etc.)

Thanks Khale!

I'll bring some box fans with me. We might be idling and not going anywhere for a while.

I'm in town that weekend and will be there! I'd like to do a carb sync if someone can bring a Twinmax.

I will have a timing gun, TwinMax carb sync, lift (if needed) and other common tools. Ask if you are seeking specific tools and I can let you know if I have them.
