It's probably getting revenge for you trying to work on it in 27 degree weather...

I bought it broke for 150.00, from WM LOL!

You should come up sometime and ride Colorado with me. Just bring some clothes and a coat. I ride year round.

I'd LOVE to ride Colorado! I spent a couple of months there a LOOONG time ago, when I first joined the Air Force. Lowry AFB, Denver Co. Loved it.

Nice, the bad part is Denver is the sucky part of the state. Did you get over to the mountains?

Yes, a group of us rented a car & took a day trip. I have quite a few pictures somewhere around here. Like I said, it was a long time ago. I do remember thinking it was breath taking. We took a picture near a sign that said 'Continental Divide' & I believe the altitude on the sign was 14,000 feet or so.

Colorado riding

It is pretty awesome up here. I laugh at the people who talk about the Dragons back or tail or whatever it is called. The drive to Salida which is about 60 miles west of me is called big horn sheep canyon, i can make my wife and kids sick within 8-10 miles it so curvey. Mountain passes with switchbacks all over the place. You can ride from 4000ft to 12,500 in 4 hours. That is why i bought the V, it had fuel injection. Carbs don't work for me.

Yep, great pic. Like having a jigsaw puzzle out your back door.

Have it done by someone who has the proper fixtures and expertise. Here's the outfit I've used for a long time: http://www.faliconcranks.com/crank_svc.html
