  1. My goals has been sub 200lbs. Im so fucking close - Yesterday was 200.3lbs. I have sort of shifted to more weight and strength training so that’s probably not helping but I feel like Im looking alot better. Valentines Day this year I was in 38 jeans and might have needed bigger. Most of my work dealer shirts were XL and a few double X. Had to buy more new clothes in August. 34” jeans are starting to be slack. I bought some size L shirts - had to send two back and get M’s. Ive also done a ton of therapy and self work upstairs. Getting the mind right. Just took an epic 5 day off-roading SxS trip with my best friends in the Colorado mountains end of August. Best part of the trip - getting no shit legit hit on / flirted with by younger woman in a bar we went to. Wonders for the ego and made all of the work this year worth it.

  3. Mike, you are a smart dude. No doubt. You overthink shit beyond the realm of reason. You need to find a girlfriend.

  4. Guess I will repeat a story again. Started my Bultaco without the seat and tank on and the top of the carb not screwed on. Quick blip of the throttle while sitting on the bike, wound the fuk out! Kill button didn't stop it, saw the sparkplug wire arching, pushed the wire to the frame with my thumb to kill it like a lawnmower, pissed my pants. Dad laughed so hard.

  5. I just had a rider from SW Washington stay for a few days on the way to a group ride in WY. Both he and his wife are competition shooters, he uses a 2019 10mm. Never heard of it, he explained it's a 1911 top with a 20 round mag in 10mm. He reloads with a dillon 1050 ( i think ). He said they go thru a lot of rounds a month, thousands.

  6. Got it running, good job. One more blackbird back on the road and that is a good thing. 15.6V at idle, agreed, new R/R is needed. Get this one Home (roadstercycle.com) . this is a genuine mosfet unit, FHA020AA superkit with wiring to connect straight to the battery.

  10. I bought this on Kickstarter a few years ago, but I ended up selling the bird before I could install it, and gave it away. The shockwave was brutal, I honked it in the house, big mistake. WHAT?!? Edit: it would require wiring. https://screaming-banshee.com/

  12. Oh come on you wuss. It's not like you have to meticulously weigh each charge, there's a whole .1grain range between min and max charges. Then you get to hold those tiny bullets in line with the seater, it's so much fun. In fact, if you ignore weighing each charge and just use a powder drop, it could be a blast!

  17. Well I was able to get the harness buttoned back up today. Also found another harness issue after and was able to confirm that the bank angle sensor. (New one from used harness and old one were bad). “Hot” wired the bank angle sensor and confirmed voltage at the fuel pump. Also had 4 wires melted together in the right hand control harness. What’s crazy is it tested good continuity through kill switch circuit when on, and none when off. This bike had a broken nose faring support that was the original problem until I went and looked at it. For $300 and 40 man hours I’m not going to complain. After repairing sub harness and reconnecting everything it fired right up. Been sitting since 2020. As for the loom fix. It is immaculate. Both the negative and positive. The yellow is my ground block that is all interconnected as show in pictures. The green was my positive with 4 separate groups connected like Fizzy and Furbird said.

  18. I have everything pictured but the black base/stand. I bolted thru a 2x6 and fastened it to the table. I can sit down to use it. The base is at table level. Extra stuff too. like tumbler, powder charge, scales all the peripheral stuff. I would like to have a case feeder but I am not pressed for time. Oscar, I haven't had any problems with the primer feeder. It counts and has an audible alarm if it runs out of primers. https://www.scheels.com/p/dillon-precision-rl550c-reloading-press/60982420252.html Edit: shit you just made me look at the upgrades for my 550 online fukr I want a boat dammit. Don't send me down this path.

  19. The real question is do you want to keep chasing this ghost or just make it so the bike will run? If all it is is this one thing, you might consider putting up the proton pack and parking Ecto 1 and just wiring up the fuel pump directly to bypass this Ghostbusters mission.

  20. The test loom is all grounding. The repair is soldering the wire ends into a lump. This link below is a great resource. There are a couple pictures added back in. It looks like you are very handy with electrics. Loom-fix

  21. Unless it is PRISTINE then do the "loom fix". Cut the wires and solder together in the exact same manner they are now connected. Remove the cap and inspect the bus bar, it should make sense once you see it is not 1 piece. Pop the 30A PGM-FI fuse? 30A fuse is for the start/stop function. You might have a pinched/broken wire hidden somewhere. You also may well have 2 functioning ECUs, or none. Hard to say at this point. Check the small wires into the 2 multi pin ECU connectors. If the ECU is not strapped down, it will move and can eventually invisibly damage these wires near the connector. Make certain of a good ground to the fuel pump. If in doubt, add a second one. Note, this pump ground may be the original culprit, even shorting out another wire in the loom.......possibly eliminate it altogether.

  22. ‘Thanks man I’ve gotten everything just about on the way , doing a fork upgrade, my lower tubes were good , my uppers were trash so I got pair as well as cartridge upgrades (and shock) coming, new fairings are on the way, and most the bits and bibs I could find broken or bent. ’last thing on the list right now is a right hand mirror glass.

  25. I know my reply might be late lol but I’ve just come across this discussion here in the UK. I took my 2005 XX Blackbird to Germany where it’s legal to exceed 70 mph and opened up on a fairly clear stretch of Autobahn and topped 190 mph with throttle left. I had calibrated my Speedo through a GPS so I’ve allowed for this. But for a cross wind I’m confident my XX would hit 200 mph. This is a polite post from a biking enthusiast of 40+ years. I’m currently examine Bonneville records, as there are so many, that might be achievable using a ‘modified’ XX Blackbird as it’s a lifelong dream to go there and achieve something. Even reaching the 200 mph Club would be great Burt Munro is a Legend safe riding guys
