No kidding. This was a great location. Several bikes got worked on and even a few of them were ridden away!Thanks to Mike and Beth for being such great hosts. Y'all lay on quite a spread.
And remarkably, the ZRX was one of them!Several bikes got worked on and even a few of them were ridden away!
Jeff ended up installing a complete digital fuel injection for me, porting and polishing the heads and boring the engine out to a 1300.Wayne,
Was was the problem with the Rex? Was your exhaust pipe noise rattling the carbs loose
If we hadn't ignored Jeff, we would have been done a lot sooner. That ZRX was running smooth when you left. Get her synched and she'll be dead on sweet.And remarkably, the ZRX was one of them!
John, Mike, Jeff and anyone else who came over and laid hands on the ailing ZRX, I cannot thank you guys enough. I would've never figured out my little "problem" without you.
The ZRX ran really good on the way home. The butt dyno says I picked up a TW200 worth of horsepower.
Mike and Beth - you guys are the greatest! Thanks again for coming to rescue me and for hosting an awesome tech day!
Got home, showered, and went to get some tasty Mexican food. I still frickin' reek of fuel. I'm just glad we sorted it out. The sad part is I still wasn't listening to Jeff .....it just took me that long to figure out that we needed to pull those plugs. We really need to keep him around for these things and listen to him when he first suggests stuff.I just glad we were at least 20 feet away from the burning bike. Any closer and we'd have gone up like like roman candles.
So what happened at the other place?From the photos... I went to the wrong house.
What time did the group break up?
I know I am new to Texas... but Rendon & Burleson are two different cities!? I went to an address in Burleson... was I even close???
A clue someone???
Scott started a collection in the book case in the living room. Marty passed the word around.We did find some green stuff in some unusual places and we appreciate it.
Talk to Soozy - she was holding the camera.Please tell me somebody got a pic of the burning bike.
Same here and there were still people and bikes out front, including Squeaky's bike on a trailer.bung said:I left at about 7 pm.
It was only a little fire. You guys are making it sound like we had to call out the National Guard or something ...well ok we did, but only a couple of them. As to pictures, I thought about stopping what I was doing and grabbing the camera, but I don't think that Hanna was going to be into posing while her bike was burning. Her bike was dubbed "Pyro" which I don't think thrilled her a great deal, but we do know that it will run now. I was very pleased to have an opportunity to work with Hanna. I found her to be a smart and remarkable young ladyPlease tell me somebody got a pic of the burning bike.
Mike was looking at one on his workbench (close to where you were working) and indicated that he didn't think he had one of those...BTW, has anyone seen a long, flex handle Craftsmen ratchet? It didn't make it back into my road box and I have a feeling that I will be needing it for this upcoming weekend.
Yep, I'm missing that one. Don't think that you have to rush over here though. Anytime you're up this way will be fine. If we're not here it'll be fine on the front porch. How'd the bike start this morning?I just looked through my Kawasaki Green Under Seat 25 Gallon Storage Bin and noticed I made it home with a long blue-handled Phillips screwdriver. Mike, I pretty certain it's yours. I'll drop it by your place today if that's ok.
I don't know about the young folks but I was out like a light about 9:00 last night.I also learned this morning that both Chuck and I get up too darned early on Sunday morning.
I am pretty sure that the drill is mine. I'll check my big tool box for any extras that might have been tossed in there...I'm also missing two snap on extensions and a 17mm socket. None of which is the end of the world....I have spares, but if you see them in your stuff I'd take them back!
I have also found these items:
and drill Chuck's maybe?
I see it didn't take long for Ron to sign up.
Done!..use 'em or keep 'em in storage for the next Tech Day.....there will be another one....please ?
Fixed it for ya...............How's the Connie running now, Ron? It still sounded like it still had a slight miss when you left, but it sounded TONS better.
DON was kind enough to let me borrow the Carbtune, so I'm looking forward to seeing the difference it'll make on the Rex.
