Well, time for an update, I posted on the brake swap, it got V65 front calipers with EBC pads on VT 1100 sabre brackets. Really stops nice. It got an acid washed and lined tank, cleaned internal fuel lines, new external fuel lines, new fuel pump, filter, carbs cleaned several times due to a bad filter, the last two by a pro that I trust and watched. 1500 coils, dyna, new wires and caps, Denso plugs, new manifold o rings.
At times it still acts lean, especially when I roll on throttle about 3,000 rpm. A bit of choke clears it up and it's cold blooded. The plenum has a Randakks gasket set and carb seals. New vacuum pull off kit too. It got really close to 40 mpg last week, mostly on the two lane with two runs up to redline in third gear. It's a bit loud at speed, I suspect there isn't much left in the mufflers. Creeping up on 60,000 miles.

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
