Today was a good day! I received the new starter solenoid with a built in fuse to replace the dogbone fuse that is a known issue in these! Pushed the magic button and voila! It lives again!



After hearing her purr like a kitten, I was inspired to get a couple other things done as well! I bled all of the brakes and also the clutch. I think I am going to need a new clutch master cylinder as the rebuild kit is nearly as expensive as a new one.

I let it idle for a good 15 minutes to get the oil nice and warm and changed it and put in a new filter. As suggested on another forum, I put half 30w and half ATF and going to run it again for a little while to help loosen everything in engine back up. I think the clutch may be sticking a little but won't be sure until the master cylinder is figured out!

That is the first time she has purred in four years.  Thanks for the video.  Looking good and sounding great!!!!

It is definitely loud! It just has the headers on it now. I haven't quite decided what I plan to do with the exhaust.

I was pretty amazed at how much it smoothed out once they were synced up!

I knew the carbs needed work but it was a nice running bike when I parked it 4 years ago.

Rebuilt the clutch master cylinder and slave! We have clutch action!

The master was slightly grimy but the slave was all gunked up! I will probably need to flush the system again to get any residual grime in the lines.
