Where's the fun in that.....??!! All kidding aside, I probably get as much enjoyment out of 'tinkering' as I do riding.

Ill second that...... love the tinkering and the mods..... fun fun... but hey low maintenance is great to.

Desired maintenance is much better than required maintenance.

Tinkering is a favorite pastime of mine too. I just got done taking a little bit of slack out of the headset. It'd probably been there for a while but I decided to get around to it. Then I went over the whole bike checking for loose stuff. Nothing else.
I'm not bragging, really - my bike is hard to tinker on. I can fine-tune sometimes, but I worked so hard getting it together the best way I could that nothing much happens with it (*knocking on wood*). For a cheap Dax China Girl, she has always been more reliable than even my old Dodge Caravan, and that's saying a lot (*beating hard on some wood*). Before I jinx myself further, I'll just finish by saying that once I'd satisfied myself that no more tinkering could be done, I rode that girl for a good long while.

Tested it today with the new top end. Timing isnt right. the base is 1mm thicker than my other cylinder. difference lies at the bottom of the cylinder. the base is not machined down far enough and raises my ports 1mm. throws off the timing something awful and it vibes a good bit.

looks like ill order an actual GT-5 cylinder from gasbike or kings....

also put this quick video together

(may not be live for a bit yet. check back in 20 min)

You sure you smell sex and it's not the money you smell?
