Default Hey..........

OK, I've Had my 79' Harley Roadster up on the rack most of the Winter, fixing, stuff changing stuff, rebuilding stuff and re-doing crap the previous owner(s)messed up and finally rode it today. Some minor adjustments ahead, now that I know how it fit's me on the road but I gotta say my ride today was SLICKER THAN GREASED OWL SNOT !!! Thank you lord for giving me the attitude of a teenager, the wisdom of an older feller and the a body that still does what I ask !!! Without you all, it would have been a lot harder, thanx !!!

Default Second OP

Have read a lot, and gained a lot of info. Have been beating my self up trying to sort out a 74 XLCH, Bendix fixed main jet. Found the right thread, great info, got the thing to lean out, running Ba--s to the wall, and plugs look great. Two kick cold, maybe three hot. I'm stocked.
