It has seen the light of day taken the maiden voyage! Still not ready for prime time, but I couldn't resist an <illegal> ride. No reg/ins, so I had to play nice. Sorta.
Before I could get out of the driveway I had to:
a) adjust the clutch. waaaayyyy out of whack. Still needs attention.
b) address two fuel leaks. Still needs attention.
c) fritter an hour away fettling to see why it was running like carp. Turns out the vacuum line was not seated on the run to the petcock. Wasn't getting fuel!
And still to do:
d) There's an oil leak way down low. Can't tell yet where it's coming from and not enough to drip (yet), but I can smell it.
e) need fittings that will allow use of the Voyager air shocks with manual fill (rather than hard lines from the former on-board air compressor). If anybody knows of a source for a Schrader valve that sits on a 6 mm machine thread, let me know. Having a bit of trouble sourcing that widget.
f) fork seals and install front fender
But, oh boy, is she a runner. Like the CBX, the grunt comes on well into the rev band. No instrumentation yet, but I'd say around 6 or so it gets on its horse and rides away. And away. And away. Me like.
Gonna be fun. (BTW, I did put on the side covers before being seen in public).
