Timing belt alignment issue
Don't forget to synch the carbs after new belts are installed, especially if timing marks are out of alignment prior to old belt removal.

I've seen some nice bike lifts at Harbor Freight and Sears. Pretty reasonable if you find them on sale. One of these days I'm bringing one home....that would be just awesome for oil changes, cleaning, etc.

Too old to crawl around on the floor!!!! [-X

Have I mentioned (more than 10 times yet) after my bikes, my Arai helmet, and my Joe Rocket riding clothing, that my bike lift is a best buy? Some tasks require standing, most require sitting on a chair...

Yah---I just visited your bike lift posting wing&aprayer, can I just say I'm :mrgreen: , just a little bit.
I don't mind getting down on the floor anymore---Hell I could lie there all day. It's the getting back up that irks me.
Would much rather stand or sit, and I could see how it would speed projects up.

It's 4 months since I last posted here. Thanks for all the advice I received on this thread. The bike is back together as of last week. Life got in the way back in June and three solid months went by before I could touch the thing. The engine runs like a top and seems to have more pull along the entire speed range. Brown Sugar is back! and I'm seriously considering transferring plates and insurance and grabbing one more month of riding before the snow flies.

Here's one over here Angela: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... Z236286869</a><!-- m --> Shipping might be another $150. but you would have to check to be sure. Also check out Costco as I've seen them there for around $700 or so.
