Never a good feeling knowing something almost burned your bike/vehicle down, is it? lol
Did that to the radio in my project truck not too long ago.

Been riding it a bit here lately. Had one of my friends over monday, I warmed the bike up and let him ride it. He had ridden it before, but the carb wasn't working all that great and it was cold.
I didn't realize how loud my bike was until I could track him around the neighborhood just by the exhaust.

In other news, thinking about grinding and smoothing the head. Any suggestions?

Also, anybody ever done a stroker build on one of these engines?
