There is no quick and easy way to post photos, unless you already have an account on a photo sharing site and know how to use it. Most of us use PhotoBucket. It is as simple as right clicking on the photo, Copying the IMG code, and Pasting it into your message here. But it is complicated getting to that point.

There are other sites that are easier like PostImage, ShutterFly, and Flickr. Here is a guide ...

You and me both! I just found out why I have gas leaking all over my garage. There was a hole in the float and it was full of gas!!

Bike is looking great. Did you fab something on the rear mount of that tank ... looks like it mounted right up perfectly? Looks like good amount of oil near bottom of rear cylinder in the original pictures. Wondering where that was be coming from?

Only thing that I have changed on the tank was the forward mounting holes for the coils and tank, head gasket was leaking on the one cylinder but I didn't see any other issues during the rebuild. I changed the clutches and put on the primary pulled the lever and heard the cable and attachment fall off. So that's where I'll start next time I'm working on it, put on the starter cover and the battery box and pipes and fire it up and see how I did.

I have had it apart enough to be able to figure out why it fell apart it shouldn't be able to come apart once in place so I must have rushed something
