Had a bit of a bother gettin it goin the first time.Idles smoothly.Nice even and steady .
There after when warm ,it took a 1/2 dozen or so to lite it up.Still working on the proper combo for a quick kickstart before I blow a knee or two.
Once rollin it pulls real strong.Runs smooth til about 50 mph.Some vibration there that smooths out near 55-60.I cruised mostly at 50 so the vibe was experienced more.
It's been so long since I've ridden that I vaguely remember the vibe at 50 from before .Think it's just the Weerier's built in normal vibe frequency.
Another shitty day today ,so I'm resetting the solids (seemed noisier than before the build) and timing (might be off a thou or 2 since the slight problem on the first run).
Yesterday after the ride, I jumped the E-start at the solenoid and it spun the motor w/ no problem.Hopefully now that all the moving parts have settled into their good running place,the E-start will work smoothly again.
The worst part of the ride was haveing to hold back from twistin the throttle wide open.
And the damn third gear wine from the tranny.

Reset timing and pushrods.Still real close to where I'd usually do them.
Tried the E-start and it fired right up.
Really wanted to get that going.My knees felt the kickin from yesterday.A real balky start durin the summer would do me in.
Kickin it to get onto and off the ferry is not usually a great time either.
Now I can deal with all the little details around here that have to be dealt with when I'm away.

Glad she's gonna turn out good for you. I've seen S&S and cheap pistons and those KB ones you had there looked every bit the quality of S&S. I wouldn't hesitate to use them once i found two the same size and weight. Have a good summer.

Trying not to,Dave.The right one is still a wee painfull when squatting.
Good that the E-start found it's happy spot and spins the mill.
Could have been just the ring tightness before they wore in abit.

I didn't realize how off a "Set" of pistons could be til I had three sets go through my hands in such a short time.
This should be a good worry free summer.
Now to change the chocolate milk lookin tranny oil that I found in there yesterday.
