In other news, I chatted with Dave from Arrow this evening for quite awhile and wow what a nice guy! I had many questions and he really helped me out and offered up some great advice. To date every vendor and forum member Ive chatted with (and its a fast growing list) have all been really great folks.

Dan.
Very true Dan we have lots of good down to earth folks here on forum and as vendors for all the parts and goodies.

Put my tank back on. No leaks. Been riding it for a little bit. Doesn't like the cold too much. Maybe that's my spark plug doing that. hehe

Carb is trying to disintegrate. argh

Up jet it? As in more fuel? It was too rich! lol
Once it warmed up it was fine.

Took my bike to work this morn. Left @ 4am it was dark and cold. Left at noon and it was a beautiful clear Nov. day about 50 degrees. 7mile ride through pretty country, God I love my bike! Well - this afternoon- me and my buddy Steve swapped out his CNS v3 for an NT. Hands are still gassy. Success! an excellent day!

What did I do today?
Well I'm glad you asked!!!

My GT-5 and I broke 50mph this evening!
Both my front fender, and my rear fender vibrated until they broke, and my rear bracer went into the spokes, but it was worth it!

I rode past a PD radar box, and saw 48mph. So I made a few more passes, and made a few more carb adjustments. 52mph is now my top speed to beat!

I am beyond effing stoked!!!!!!!

Took a 20 mile reliability test ride on my recently mocked up gt2a-s, no problems. Rode right by two different parked police cars, no problems...

Pulled the trigger today on one of Neil Senior's balanced engines. Sounds like a good affordable upgraded block and a full review will follow as I prep and install it in The Pig II.
I went with Neil rather than Dax for three reasons:
1. Neil makes no false "made in America" claims.
2. Neil's motor is complete with top end.
3. Neil has a better price.
I've been thinking about a dax balanced bottom for awhile, but the need for a top end and the false advertising kept me from buying.
Neil's engine looks like a great deal!
Time will tell...
