I spent all day Saturday going through my 59. Had a long list to do and was able to get most of it done. Put in a new Barnett Kevlar clutch pack, the dry fiber disks were far from dry. I will give this a shot.
I put on my new kicker cover, finally have the correct one back on the bike. I wanted to swap the cam cover but found the one I bought has the wrong bushings in it. So I figured I would give my original one a final shot.
I swapped the carb for a new Mikuni vm38. I had enough of the Bendix. Put on a new throttle new cable, retimed the ignition, adjusted the push rods, etc.
Buttoned it all up and she started on the 3rd kick and idled perfect. The damn magneto is leaking oil under the plate again. Back to the drawing board.
Thanks for the carb Noot...I need one of those cable adapters you make for the vm. Bike runs great with this carb, I am a believer!

I found this little beach about 5 miles from my house. I can get there by back roads and its always empty when I get there. I can only do about 50 right now before this 52 tooth rear sprocket has me pretty wound out in 5th gear.
The river is really high right now and there is shit washing up on shore. Maybe I will find something cool one of these days.
