Cool to hear you were able to do this yourself!! I love working on my own bike, the only down side is it always cuts into my riding time. Even though I mess up on a regular basis, it's still satisfying knowing I'm the only one to blame.

OUTSTANDING!! You should be proud of your work and you'll enjoy riding even more, knowing you have some of your own sweat in that pretty bike.

Good for you girl! I'm happy for you...

Kept us apprised of any oil consumption issues, if you have any....

Just curious...

Why are you bumping up your main jet???
