Ordered the UCE silencer from Classic... Going to ride around the block and count the days til it arrives... Rear sprocket is ate up from chain getting too loose... Hopefully will have a replacement soon...  :( it is still ridable but just not very far from the house... :-\ Carry the cell phone just in case...lol  :D

Out torque checking all the fasteners today. Only one found loose so far is the one without Loctite
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Just got back from a WET ride.  I took my chance that it wouldn't open up and lost that bet big time.  Haven't been out in that much rain for quite a few years.

I was testing whether the fuel sensor was truly out of commish.  The low fuel light was off at first, as normal, but came on for most of the ride.  Funny, when I firmly turned the handlebars left to right the light would go off for a bit, then return to on, when there was a lot of gasoline left.

After filling it up and waiting for the rain to stop, the fuel light was off as expected, but came on shortly thereafter and stayed on. 

Anyway, the bike cleaned up fine.  I really like the Prowler spray wax purchased from the nField store.

Watched it shed a tear as it sat in the garage when I left this morning. :'( After a month I finally had to take the Jeep to work and garage the Bullet due to an intense weather system passing through. It was so rainy I didn't see the sun once today  :o

  Looked longingly at it.  Thirty degrees and still five inches of frozen crap to deal with.  Might get at it yet this week to install the Amal carb.  This crap SUCKS!!!!

I don't know if anyone warned you, but the grin is permanent!
