Took mine out for a run yesterday, very pissy at start up but it had sat for a month. Once underway she ran like a dream with the Goldie pipe barking all the way! Life is grand.Robert & REnfield.
Hi Ice:I rode my bullet today. Crisp clear day today with autumn colors everywhere. I also have lots of twisties and hills. I ride most roads that are 45 to 55 mph roads that are great for my iron barrel bullet. I had the head off early in the season to replace the head gasket and I got a good seal this time by coating all surfaces with gascacinch. I'm not sure of that spelling but the stuff works good for me. I had a little oozing but removed the tank a second time and retorqued it and that did the trick. So lately, Ive been riding before snow flys. - - - not very far away here in northern New England.
Yuasa does offer a cheaper Chinese brand of battery, called Moto-cross I think. I have sold only a couple. I mainly sell Yuasa's, I rarely ever have a problem with them, maybe 1 a year (if that) and I sell a BUNCH of them ever year.
Well, it was getting dark by the time I'd finished, but what I did was try a different silencer:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtQJMPBsve0Tom
What are the indications of a ring job?
I just past 22222 miles. My fuel mileage seems to be dropping in the cooler weather, using a bit of oil, and I think I saw some smoke out the exhaust. What are the indications of a ring job?
agentx - "" Today, I adorned my handlebars with some pompom tassels scored from a Rajasthani truck stop."Sounds like u immersing yourself in the culture on that 350 cc machine...Fantastic...You definitely been riding more than I did when living over there..I just did the Delhi scene and didn't venture out past the city..Sounds like fun.

I finally acquiesced and chose a name for my bike today, too... "Bhenchod." Given our relationship it's the only possible name I could have chosen. It seems to have cracked the guys up quite a bit, except one man with no sense of humor.
How is this the only name you could come up with? I'm not sure how much that slang is used in India but assume it could be offensive to some. I think there must be a better name for your Bullet.
Maybe I'll paint it on the tank.
