My Boys!!! Thanks guys! I think I would like to replace the bazooka with an EFI, but I don't want the bike to be any louder. Anyway, that will probably be next season's "project".Solvent: Alcohol? Acetone? Mineral Spirits? (That's all the solvents I have...)
Heat promotes oxidation. Thing that get hot rust faster, simple as that.
A heavy split lock washer would probably do a better job of securing the screws.
