Well, I figured I better not turn mile 0 up at the forum ride so I and a friend snuck out to the Oak Grove/St Francis/Lake George area for a few miles of test riding to work the bugs out.

It all worked out for me. No coolant leaks, no funny noises, nothing broken. 10+ seconds of WOT without any signs of explosion heh. No overheating.

Oh how much fun the first ride on the sled of the season is![:D]

Too bad somehow I accidentally set the black and white mode on my camera. Here is the only pic of the day:

Good to hear everything is in line.

Quick question, what size do you go with for pilot jets?

I am running on the rich side, and I don't want burn her down. Mine came with 32.5's and I put 40's in it with the trail heads. I was thinking about going to 35's but I don't want to lean out to much.

Pilots won't burn your sled down. I have 42's or 40's in right now and they are much too rich. If I let it idle for more than 5 seconds it has to clean out with a of smoke. Main jets are what are important. I was running 300's or 310's but I don't reccommend you going that lean.

Your camera probably has it as well as whatever photo editing software you are using. Most also have the yellowish anteque look too, forget the name of that.

Looks like you have about as much snow as I do :(
