I've got a pile of me own berries ..... although not as sweet as those low bush ones - these are the size of a quarter! Juicy as hell to. High bush is an understatement - haven't pruned them ever, so they're about 7' -10' tall now!
Hey Freddy - can ya do a loan for a '13 ZR1???
I can't pay ya back ... but that's the "new" American way!
Well finally got another nightmare of a project finished. That would be my brother's DR350. I've never done more wiring & electrical troubleshooting on one bike in my LIFE!! Probably $2,500 worth of labor into this thing time-wise .... but I'll be lucky to get .01% of that ...
Anyway, that new fangled battery that I thought I'd try took a dump on me not 10 minutes after installing it. Turns out you can't run them dead or they will NOT come back - at all, which sucks. After emailing the guy who sold it to me it sounded like he copped an attitude ...so I copped one right back, naturally. He wisely sent me another one.
So now I have the street model charging system all installed & zip-tied in place, and it works MINT! 14.3v at idle with high beams, turnsignals, & brake light on. Good deal! Just have to install a horn and IT'S DONE!!
I also got my buddy's '83 Nighthawk rolling again. It's been here for almost 2 months getting worked on ... & of course, in that time frame the fuel went to *censored*.
Wouldn't run without the choke. So thinking back to how I had to use an 8' 2x4 to remove the carbs last time, I figured I'd try running all the fuel screws all the way in, then back out, just to maybe poke whatever crap fuel is jammed in the pilot fuel passageways. Well, whaddya know?? It actually worked!! Bike runs mint now!! Ran her up and down my street 65 mph, sliding on sand and potholes. Dumped the oil and diff.oil for some Amsoil. Ready to rock!
Here's a pic of the new stator - check out how many more windings there are compared to the old one below the pic! Charges MUCH better ... obviously! (this was before I fixed that abortion of a wiring job ...)
