Yep!  Everyone loves John's "pot" guitar, and it was rather easy to put that one together.  John is really good at truing necks and setting the intonation and we're both good at electronics.  We could always go to local music stores and sell them directly to the stores too I suppose.  :)

Need opinions.  My bike is ready for a test ride except I never sealed the inside of tank.  Do you think I developed any pinholes pounding on it off do you think I'm good to fill it and ride?

From what I can see the inside looks pretty good.  Most of the dents look rolled and not pinched.  I think I'm ok, just wanted others' thoughts.

No way for us to tell.
You have to make the call.

I filled it, so far so good.  Went for a couple shakedown runs.  I think I need  to increase the collector to 2", she dogs out up top.  Nice and smooth down low tho.  I also had to remove the baffle, too much back pressure.

What do you think of the seat?

I've been thinking today I think part of my problem is that I'm in need of new carb tuning.  With the new longer 2-1 exhaust I think that it is not quite as free flowing as before, plus scavenging better drawing in more fuel than it was before.  I got to thinking of the characteristics; lack of power over half throttle, banging in the exhaust, and an occasional pop.  Also few times it was surging when I returned after a short ride, tho I made sure I had no intake or exhaust leaks.  I played with the timing a little and got it where it kicks rights over, and doesn't ping but just isn't running right.  I'm thinking of dropping a main jet or 2 and maybe dropping the needle from the bottom notch to the middle.  It has always been a little lean in the pilot jet, and to the best of my knowledge it is not changeable on the 930, so I'm not worried about there.  I didn't get a chance to check the plugs.

She's telling you she wants more fuel over half, start with the needle, if it fixes up 1/4-3/4, your on the right track, then fiddle with the main.

Yes it is.  Have to have a catch can to race any tracks around here.

I put 3 3mm washers under the needle.  Fired on the first kick and it isn't banging in the exhaust revving it.
