Probably won't get to adjusting the carbs for a week or two.

Also thinking about making a little bracket with, say, some strapping to hold the carbs stable and in-place.

Exhaust?

If so, it is stock and doesn't appear to leak at the head or elsewhere.

Maybe once I have a brain bucket, I'll feel more confident. Is there a way to raise the ride height (maybe a rear shock adjustment/change) as it rides a little low for a six footer?
