I just spent a GREAT afternoon with GSS and his lovely daughter. It was a fun meeting, but we both agreed it needs to be just a tad warmer to ride! GHG - he sends his regards YOUR way as well!

   It would appear that the Tundra is thawing then  Scooterbob !?   :o    Right back at ya GSS !  Thank you  ;)

  No

    Well..... I thought a two inch ball valve would be a bit overkill, for the pressurized EFI system.  :o    The 3/8 Brass valve and fittings worked out nicely, and they are functional for how we hooked up the fuel system. It's nice to have a Valve for maintenance reasons, as well as a sediment trap with a plug , to drain the Tank and system down.  Also because of the external pressurized fuel lines...It's not a bad idea to have a big handled valve ;)  I Figured I might take some flack for that.....But I like the brass, and I used it on the last Cafe I did.  Looked cool I thought.... Matter of taste I guess. ;)

the ball valve looks fine, but, it appears to be on the suction side of the pump.

  Thanks  ! ;)
  It is gremlin.... should the valve be accidentlley shut off While the bike is running..... Although not a good thing... The system will slowly lose pressure.... The bike will stall, and the pump will cut off. Re Priming the pump, is not a problem, a couple of hits on the kill switch and it primes it right up.

  Sooo... The Stock ECU Controls the inline pump that we used. Just like it would the stock pump ...... Nuttin' going on in the combustion chamber.....no pump. And most of the left over pressurized fuel in the line, get burned off quickly.
 We didn't use a separate "Switched"..... like a toggle..... pump circuit to run the pump.

   Whelp, weather is cold so it's time to get back into it and see what else we can do.  From the frozen Tundra of the mid way, a nicely worked cylinder and a beautiful forged .020 over AVL piston from ScooterBob.  The Cylinder was over bored a bit... for a nice fit. And also some pretty nice fin work, with the alternating paint and polish.

  I Luvz projects..... what the hail else ya gonna do , with these god forsaken winters. Watch TV !?  Hail no !   ;)    That garage does get cold though man....
Think I'll  lighten ,grind down, contour, and polish up the stock rocker's too.  They are kinda sorta like slabs of foundry room floor scrap, turned and with a flat ground in.

You need to get yourself a propane catalytic heater for your garage.  I NEVER get cold!  ;)
