Default End in sight finally?

I have been having one hell of a time trying to sort out exactly WHY my 86 GSXR 750 has been giving me fits. Runs good, then drops a cylinder, runs good, then bogs down, etc....... I have always ruled out electrical due to it running great at WOT.

I finally broke down and did some wholesale changes..

New plugs
New pilot jets
Valve adjust "just because"
Cleaned carbs AGAIN
New fuel line
Fuel filter

Have I said how much I HATE pulling the carbs from this bike and putting them back in? That built this thing around an air box which gives you limited clearance between the intake boots. Total PITA, ya know?

Anyways, I get it all back together last night and she fired up and seems to run better than ever right now!

This evening will see mounting up some new tires (Picked up some Pirelli Sport Demons for it!). You know how many tires are still made in this size? Not many. I may look into getting some more wheels in a better 17" size for it at some point just to make it more simple. No matter what, the current biscuits are over 14 years old, so this should be a big improvement!

Soon as this weather clears, guess we'll see how she does!
