Got my license plates today (for my truck)!
Got my new battery earlier this week. Hope to pop it in for a test sometime this weekend. Don’t have an actual picture, but it’s the Ballistic Evo 2 8-cell shown below
Today was a day full of fun. I met Eddie, and spent plenty of time working on my Hawk. And just like the first time, Andy (K-os) was a huge help. It’s late, I’m running on 5 hours of sleep, and I’ve been up since 7 am, so I won’t be writing too much. The day Started with a stop at Harbor Freight to pick up a 1,000 lb limit motorcycle lift, that itself weighed 360 lbs. Threw that in the back of my pickup and headed north! The day was spent wrenching, cleaning, attaching, and fixing. I now have a speed-bleeder on my front brake, and my Mikuni pump has replaced my stock fuel pump. One less electrical component to worry about Finally got it running again today. Sounds as good as ever
I received two packages in the mail today. A new Mikuni fuel pump (vacuum driven as compared to my existing electric pump) and a CRG Hindsight LS bar end mirror.
Not a direct update on my Hawk, but I created a ramp to use with my pickup for easier loading/unloading of the bike. I purchased this ramp kit from Amazon. It seems to have come out well, though I won’t have a chance to test it until this Saturday, Carb Day #2 with K-os!
