havent had a chance to get back on but i picked up the new battery and charger, built the battery and charged up / tended fine.

funny... the old battery is holding fast at just under 13v now.

The bike starts easier and some of the low end vibration on throttle is gone. That’s nice. Got my knurled mixture and idle adjustment screws and tossed them in. Adjusted the mix whatever the buell forum says for my mods and jets. I haven’t originally messed with this at all because I couldn’t get to it with the airbox on the bike. Now I can if needed

So cool that every mod available for the bike has a trail that leads how to get it 90% of the way dialed in for the changes made. To be honest I’ve done most of the mods now... besides a power tube, intake and stack, and bigger fuel feed elbow the rest require engine work.

I have a rear stand coming so I’ll get the oils changed and primary adjusted. Lastly a new front tire as the old one is semi questionable , there are scallops in the center tread.

Got the mixture and idle speed worked out. I think the auto enrichment is too great so that is next on the list. Put new fancy brake fluid in and bled out both calipers

new front tire is in, just gotta get it off the bike and swapped out somewhere.

my bike stand is in, so I can finally change the oils and build a center stand.

lastly I’ve been riding the bike everywhere with no issue. Had my first “breakdown” after about 60 miles yesterday. Was starting the bike after a store stop and it backfired and blew the carb off the intake lol. My wonderful wife brought me a few tools and I was on my way in a few minutes.

Interesting find in the trans filled with water lol the vent hose was sticking up. I turned it down. Must have done this washing it.

new oils and filter, shifts fantastic. No Harley clunks!!! Found a grommet in the frame for the side plastic so put that back in too. Next will be the carb out again to adjust the cold enrichment it’s terrible. I may do the intake engine gasket too.

Also the bike is so slow but so fun. Can’t wait to get new fork oil and a shock on it.

Taking the pipe off is easy putting it back on requires finesse.

Put about 1000 miles on the bike since inspection. Still feels nice. It isn’t fast at all but handles well and cruises well on the back roads.

I don’t think the buell does 100, maybe 90? I’ve only gone 70. It’s slow up there.

been riding to and from work sipping gas and having fun 50 and under lol.

developed a small oil seep I’ll rebuild the top end and replace the 6 oil lines too. In the winter.
