Excellent! sounds like I'll have to redo my jets and such here soon. I really need to start my new job so I can buy another bike so I can work on the Seca and still have a ride... Like my thought process there ;)

I do like that way of thinking!

HOLY SMOKIN DOGS, I have actual acceleration and it starts so easy and runs so smooth and even. I don't know what it is, the new jet sizes, the new needle jets and float bowl gaskets, or the synching of the butterfly valves and float heights, or a combination of all of it but it is AWESOME!

Now that i have some acceleration i really notice the whole "rocking horse" effect. Fork springs seals and oil are next on the list.

I didn't realize how cruddy it ran before!

Look at it this way MOzarkRider, you can buy your wife her own bike and test ride it while you're working on yours. :brow:

Nice bike! I'm sure Sarah wouldn't mind you riding pillion with her now and then when your Seca is in pieces...

Well, you just sold me on replacing all the rubbers in my carbs...

Bike looks great. I love that blue color. I think it will look great with the black.
