    Fairing Stay

    You might want to double check this, but I believe the fairing stay for carb bird is different to FI.
  2. Sounds like Swampnut needs a swamp cooler?
  3. If it is in the budget, you should look at LED headlights. Good ones are more compatible with the reflectors in the bird shell than HID + they are instant on.
  4. Ballast? What aftermarket bulbs are you using as the bird does not come with ballasts as stock? Anyway, try a spray electrical cleaner into the switch as a first go. What is your running voltage?
  5. After coat 47 didn't work, you went ahead with 10 more?🍺 Your first pic showed areas of differing gloss. Anyway, I'm not there, you are. These things don't always show up well on pics. I think you are expecting too much from Behr, as it is low grade bottom shelf stuff. If you don't like my advice, go to a pro paint store, follow their advice and buy only top grade paint, at least for this particular project.
  6. Flipper may have spot primed over the crayon with a shellac based primer which does an excellent job of covering stains but leaves a slightly shiny finish that will bleed thru. To fix, you may need to re-prime the whole wall 2 times with an oil based primer such as zinsser cover stain oil based primer. Then your paint of choice. Alternately, you might find success with a top quality (Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore top grade) interior paint/primer in one, which has good covering abilities, but not as good as my 1st option.
  7. Something tells me tomek will not be impressed with black and white pics. His loss.
  8. Presumably, this is the same bike that you are rebuilding the carbs on in a sister thread. This has never happened to me personally, but I understand that if you foul an iridium plug, it is very difficult to bring it back to life. In case your carb rebuild fails, I would get her running properly with the old plugs, then switch to iridium.
  9. In their ballpark, but not in their league?
  10. 97% of climate scientists agree that these ladies are hot. So it's settled.
  11. If you bleed, what color is your blood? 😎
  12. Tuff guy? Sun Tzu .............. "when you are weak, appear strong, when you are strong, appear weak" 🍺
  13. Have you 2 actually ever been seen together? 😎
