    The pipe (x pipe?) Under the transmition is rotten. I am going to weld up a stainless Xpipe at work and replace the resonators with new aftermarket ones... Still a couple of months down the road.

    A little update on my ZL9 carbs that Rick rebuilt
    First off,, lately I haven't been riding much due to work load
    But,, I was able to get a few rides in ,,,,
    My first ride was a 50 mile round trip on the freeway, traffic was paced at about 90 mph.
    That was a bit high paced to do a fuel/mileage check but it is knowledge gained
    The bike ran smooth as silk and always had more rpm on tap.
    the next two rides were short, in town, 5 miles each and of course the bike ran flawlessly
    I got about 61 miles then hit reserve. the last tank of gas I hit reserve at about 54 miles
    so my fuel efficiency is much better and I think if I stay under 70 mph I will get even better mileage
    last thing is the minor buzz at the gas cap is gone...
    Thanks again Rick,,, Job well done!
    I forgot to mention ,,, I nailed 2nd gear crossing an intersection and pulled a wheelie, Me happy!
