Yes sir, hang around the pool hall long enough and you learn a few tricks.

So far folks that Sea Foam I got at AutoZone for 1/2 price is working. Splashed some into a half full big tank and first time it started after sitting for a bit some light colored smoke came out. After a couple of days of long idling periods an short rides it definately has gotten it's groove back. Smooth idling and more acceleration pickup. Pretty amazing stuff. Next test will be a 25 mile run into town. Gonna switch to 81 gas and see what happens.

Thanks to one and all for ideas and advice. 🤠

Ssshhhhh. We are not allowed to talk about S**F**m in here. It will bring out all the haters and conspiracy theorists.

Glad you got it running better. Do a google search now and find a local supplier of ethanol free gas. Then it won't need the the dreaded S word.

Thanks Karma, got them done last year in Tucson, with the back rest, $100 out the door.

We looked at the samples in odd lighting and I thought the red was a bit darker but I'm jake with it. Did a similar thing with my 97 (see my garage) in black and white. Besides the looks it is more pragmstic here in AZ to have a lighter color in the sun. Big owie if you are in shorts.
