Glad to see you going there.  (I'm a tad heavy myself these days.)  If you did it before, then you can do it again!

Best of luck,

J~

Yeah, it's great to be back on two, Todd.  Here it's like living on GMR/GRR and Ortega without the crowds.  I do miss my friends, though...

Looks like a good meal from a good day on the water!  Glad that you're doing well.

Ride on,

I picked up a new ride a few weeks ago.  She's been a fun project and runs and rides very well!  Before and after pics below.

It seems that I care a lot less about the bike these days than where it takes me.

Nice work, Todd.  If I were closer I'd have you do some stuff for the Ninja.

I'd be in for the next one if I was still out there.  Stay safe and have fun!

Have you searched the thumper forums for the problem?  Chances are someone else has been there.

Yup, I've been searching all the forums, youtube, etc..... It appears to be a jetting issue, and honestly feel like I don't know the concepts well enough to really troubleshoot it. I feel like I'm just blindly guessing right now. I put the stock jetting back and now it won't idle without choke but I can apply throttle fine. It just seems like I can't get the right "jetting ratio."

Wow.  Sorry that there's nothing out there on it. 

I'd be suspicious of the airbox seals and air filter as vacuum is a huge factor when dealing with carbs. No vacuum, no fuel when you give it gas.  I'm restoring another Ninja and it had the same problem.  A badly installed K&N was causing it.

Keep us posted on what it is.

Luck,

J~

^ Buy that, then get in touch with RD Todd.  Buy him a six pack and he'll teach you how.

Chase-Harper makes the best.  If you keep the area between the plastics and straps clean, they won't rub much.  I think they make a easy-peel stick-on clear film that you can put on the plastics to prevent damage.

Forward Air has been good so far.

This is one reason to constantly check your 6 when riding. Have people become so lazy that they no longer want to drive on their own?

^ That.

Ride on,

Good work!  Looking forward to seeing how you get it all done up.

I hope that she rests in peace and that her family and friends find solace soon.

There have been way too many of us that have died too soon.

knock 5 mph off your lane sharing speed and see how many more people move over for you.

Also - people are garbage trucks.

Giving people time to see you approaching strikes me as wise.  Ten over the speed of traffic and flipping the brights on now and then for attention worked pretty well for me.

Speaking of garbage, I recently noticed that when I set the cans up so that it's easy to grab them and toss their contents into the truck, the garbage man responded by setting the lids back on instead of tossing them into the ditch like he used to.

Well... 

This thread just set a knee down and took a turn for the interesting!

Ride on,
