    Found the b8es at my local advance auto and carquest. Probably will pick up a couple on the way home from work tomorrow.

    Bike is back together. New plugs installed. My right side plug looked pretty good. Left side sooty. Will run the bike for a while and recheck them.
    Initial start still has the carbs burping a bit. Today used choke to get it started. I was having issue with it not idling down very well. At the auto parts store opened idle air screws each half turn and turned idle speed screws back 1/4 turn. Seemed to do the trick.
    Took it up to 7500 rpm or about 70 mph a couple of times briefly.
    I had some oil streaks on my right air cover afterwards. Did not see a real source. Probably remnant of the weekend screwup.
    No leaks under bike after several hours.
    I am having a little coarseness during takeoff, sort of clunky.
    Continue to like it.

    Probably need to quit reporting as much as I do on the project logs. But, I need to buy more loctite. Riding into work this afternoon, I looked down and the bolt holding on my clutch lever was working its way out. It had a nut on the back side for added measure. Another stainless fastner laying on the road somewhere from this bike. Idling speed issues seem OK. Early cough still there during warm-up.
    Need to find me a bag to mount to the cross bar on the handlebars or some other satchel to hold at least keys and wallet. I have a handlebar mount for my cell phone (on side of road assistance device) that I got from one of my bicycles. Last week, a set of my Harley keys fell out of my pockets while I was riding the bagger. Did not discover it until I got to my destination. Had to call wife to bring me my backup set. Retraced my path and found the remains of my key set. Hundred bucks later and a replacement is ordered. So I am reluctant to leave much of value or import in my pockets when riding the bikes.

    Now you know why bikers chain their wallets and keys to their belts...........

    I want to know what pockets are that loose when sitting on a bike... I've never had anything come out of my pants pockets while riding, ever.

    Yep. Don't recall it ever happening to me as well. I don't use it, but an ex Harley rider - he sold me my first one a 1981 FLT - even gave me one of those wallets with a chain on it. Used it a couple of times. I am guessing I just did not shove the keys in deep enough. Most of the time stuff like keys, phone will go in the right-side saddle bag.
    As to the bike, getting to like it. It is peppy. Going to have to decide what is causing my low speed burping/hiccuping or whatever it might be called. In other words sitting at a traffic light I don't have a smooth 1100-1300 idle. And while I used to think the idle speed anomaly was just when cold, I do experience it after it is warmed up. I have modified idle air adjustment - went from 1.5 to 2 turns out.
    The more I ride it, the more I think my gear/chain lunge is just clutch familiarity.
    As to riding, it is pretty cool to be able to control the bike with just essentially your behind and legs - if that makes sense. It is nimble. Need to get it on some our twisties and check it out a little more.

    Yes, they are nimble little machines. It's almost like you can steer them by thought alone. Glad you are getting close to having yours sorted out. Did the chain guard work out ok?

    I have yet to get it installed. I see where the rear attach point goes, but have not figured out the two front ones.
    The high center riding position takes some getting used when you have been putting thousands of miles in the low center of gravity style.
