I just need to figure out a way to talk her into a /5. That headlight bucket is sexy.

I've got a spare bucket and gauge just for you :)
That way you have a compromise with your wife. "But it's just the bucket!!"

I like it. She might not even notice.

I have a 1977 Havana Gold R75/7 that has just come back to life after 20+ years of being in storage. Cosmetics are done and the engine starts but does not run well. Anyone have a twinmax carb balancer available to get these carbs setup correctly? I am located in Woodstock and we could have a tech session here if y'all are interested. I'd love to get this bike sorted out.

I am trying to reset the carbs the old fashioned way. The right side seems spot on but the left side is running rich. I have expanded the tab on the float to lower the gas level and turned in the pilot jet a quarter turn. I will try it again before Saturday to see if I get lucky. I am not sure I want to drive it to Decatur like this. If it runs better I will try to get there. You will have to PM me with the address. Thanks.
