  1. Having a 4th Gen means pulling the carbs occasionally. When the carbs are off it's easy to see down the intakes to the back side of the valves. It used to look like the photos above. Ever since I plugged the airbox intake and put the small filter on the breather there's been no build up on the intake valves. They look almost identical to the exhaust.
  2. Curious as to the "something you did about it." I put a filter on the on the outlet from the valve cover and plugged the inlet to the airbox for this very reason. One of the small aftermarket tapered filters will fit under the tank. rm
  3. I got one of these gathering dust in the garage. I'm watching in case I ever put bags on my bike. Might consider shortening it a bit while you're at it. And they do make a stainless steel silencer packing material, much longer life than the glass. Tim
  4. I got to sit on Mini-Carvers 5th/6th Gen at the last Summer Summit in South Dakota. (Yeah, he offered to let me ride it but he's about a foot taller and the bike is definitely set up for him). Super well thought out and executed. He showed me the cast-in boss on the Fifth Gen engine that he bolted the VTEC solenoid to-like Honda knew someone was going to do this swap. A RWB 6th Gen WITH cam gear whine AND dual Staintunes!? Outstanding. If I win the lottery... Oh, his dad rides a 6th Gen WITH a TORO Charger, yes quite the team.
  5. Understatedly stunning.
  6. Which is why I use M1 5W-30 in my 4th GEN (see above) As a side note, I've been working on cars/bikes for 55 years (my dad started me on cleaning parts when I was less than 10) and RAT540's info pretty much is in line with my limited experience. Others may vary, which is why there is more than one brand/type/'weight' of oil. Keep it clean.
  7. Yoshi, add me to the list for 1 set. Many thanks.
  8. I got "laid off" after 17.5 years. I was in the burst radius of a politics and money ka-boom. P.O.d for about 10 minutes and then-"What am I going to do now?" Sent out a few resumes at the beginning of the overseas contractor 'happy time'. Got one phone call-no follow up. Came home to find a FED EX envelope with a contract and a ticket to Pakistan. Got to do some cool stuff in some interesting places. One door closes-another opens. With your skills you won't have any trouble making a go of it-drive on, and best of luck-but it doesn't look like you'll need it.
  9. 2 wheel version of the Sistine Chapel. A mobile work of art.
  10. Beautiful-I like the white wheels on yellow-very clean.
  11. Thank you Sir, It worked perfect.
  12. I'm just an analog guy in a digital world, so could somebody tell me where I find the directions to do this? I'm a PC guy at work and am on the wife's MAC at home, which I'm sure is part of my issue. Thanks.
  13. Rangemaster made it home Saturday to Albuquerque just before the afternoon monsoon. Did another 100 miles after COS_VFR (many thanks) and I part ways in Limon Co. Great to have a riding partner thru some of the most desolate country I've ever seen. Great time, nice to see everybody and meet some new great people. Many thanks to Tony for a fun few days.
  14. Sorry to break in, but is/was there a thread on doing this to a 4th gen 750? If so, I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance.
  15. Custer is twice the distance from my house. 2 day ride there. "But Honey, I don't pick where they hold these, I just go." I voted for Custer. PS: I know that's nothing milage for some of you guys, but it's the time off that is a killer for me.
