Welcome to my nightmare...

This thread isn't as much about seeking advice as it is documenting Matilda's* issues.

I picked her up a couple of years ago because I missed riding a lot and the price was right. Unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs that day, so I didn't look at her as closely as I should have. My mistake but I was distracted because the guy's cat decided to attack my dog. If I'd have noticed that the exhaust can was aftermarket I would have passed on the deal then and there.

He said that he'd hired a guy to do the carbs because it was running poorly and that the guy had flaked. He did throw in a set of stands, saddlebags, some oil and new rotors.

The first pic is the bike after I got it home. Then on the stands and then what I found in the carbs. She now has over 7,000 more miles on her than when I got her and is doing fairly well.

Stay tuned for more exciting news on my particular problems.

J~

A few more pics.

The fairing were all there, they were just stowed while the work was being done. A few more pics. Supplies and... Brake pads? They have to be replaced?

And the wasp nest on the front wheel, the red-LED turn signals the kid had installed, then the clarifier that I put together to deal with the crap in the fuel after I drained the tank. You siphon fuel from a gas can through the clarifier and then into the tank. The water and associated debris stays at the bottom. Handy when the gas-cap lets water into the tank in the rain.

Stay tuned!
