    And the sliders… Note the bigger hole is where the needle goes through and that the upper hole is plugged, lower hole is unmolested..

    Isnt the extra hole a sign of a previous jet kit? when i put a dyno stage one jet kit in my ole 900RR i had to drill a similar hole in each slide. not nearly that big tho.. Good progress brother, nice shop i see in the background too.

    Ah-hah! I see I’m not the only guy using a Harbor Freight digital caliper!!

    I will say, so far it’s been right on line with measurements also taken with a Starrett unit.

    @bambam said: Isnt the extra hole a sign of a previous jet kit?

    the F2’s have 2 holes stock… and yes some of the kits out there say to drill a 3rd, but said no to that… plugging the one hole and leaving only the one allows for a slight quicker off the line response.

    @JNSRacing — digital is the only way to go with their zero out calibration button… makes life easier

    @cbr-f2 You get her done yet? More pics please. The weather is going to be nice this weekend, you want to ride? Need an extra set of hands to get on the road soon?

    @jnsracing I have an old analog set and a harbor freight digi set. Harbor Freight is a great value and never had an issue yet.

    @cbr-f2 Let me know when your getting at it next and I will come over. Tomorrow I am going to pick up a 74′ XL350 blue color scheme. Its mostly in boxes and only missing the seat. I will have to do some welding and hammer out the tank but looking forward to a rainy day project. DUDE cannot wait to fire up the 51!

    it works!!! it actually does make a difference in the mid range pull and top end screams up a little faster…

    Nope… it really didnt do anything except create a whistling noise at certain rpms… :cry:

    So today I decided to put my bar end weights back on. Thanks to @jnsracing for hooking me up with a inner weight to replace a mangled one… Also changed grips back to an o.e. look.

    I’m glad that clip-on could be of some use to somebody – the other one was bent, so I didn’t think I would be able to do anything with the good one!

    Well its been a while since ive done anything to the bike lately and or even udated anything to my build thread…. So currently as it sits i am waiting to get some new tires, change the rear sprocket to a 45 tooth from the fact. 43, also going to add some red reflective wheel strips, bring the carbs back to stock jetting(i think) or maybe go bigger… not quite sure yet… so until then i will be patiently waiting… :roll:

    I am very pleased to announce that I have an early x-mas gift coming to me… Which will require some tear down, prep and cleaning of what is to come… Pics and more info to follow soon.

    That is all. :roll:

    Somehow I hasn’t noticed this thread before. I seem to be missing the pics. May just be cause I’m on mobile but sounds like it’s coming along. Nice! on the tires. I’m gonna run those next.

    Little progress made with the front tire off and wheel is cleaned & touched up… Still gotta attack the rear and then mount up the new shoes. :)

    Looks like the rear wheel could benefit from the same treatment. :mrgreen: The front looks really nice… you should put some accents on the rims, while they’re off, a red or white stripe, maybe.

    Thanx guys… All that’s really left is some minor polishing for some added protection to the paint and to get them balanced or not…

    Now that is sexy!! I like those rims. I think the RR rims are lame. I do like the 2013 rims though. This will look great all back together! Lookin forward to feedback on the tires!
