    Thanks D. I'm stoked with how it turned out. When the sun shines again, I'll get it outside and take some photos. Let it run for 10 minutes today and then dumped the oil. Looked a little dusty but otherwise clean. Still need to sort out the carb cap issue and some electrical problems.

    Was able to fix the carb cap problem. Took a small piece <10mm 1/4" OD tubing and inserted it into the Webllc carb which in effect, made the cable shorter. The slide sits in the bottom, and now I'm able to pull the slide to the top at WOT.

    Too bad the weather is so crappy. Really want to break the bike in.

    The weather's still too bad to take the bike out and break it in a little. Snowed last night. One small problem. All of my electrical and lighting work great except the speedo light, neutral light, and high beam light. Odd to think all three bulbs would be bad when they worked before the teardown. Any ideas?

    You try swapping out the bulbs? Perhaps they worked loose when you took it apart.

    Well two of them share a common ground and the other is also grounded - I would check that first.

    Grounded where? There are six wires coming out of the speedometer. Only ground I know about is the one from the tail light to the fender.

    I'm talking about the green wires that come off your speedo and neutral lights plus the green that comes off your headlight (to ground the high beam) and all attach to the wire harness. Something's strange if all three don't' work therefore I think a ground problem.

    Three ways I can come up with (with help). 1.) Get the long cable from CHP. Would be good to know how much longer it is first. 2.) Shorten the outer cable housing by clipping one ring off of it if you want to use the old Keihin cap. 3.) Using the new cap, get a piece of 1/4" OD plastic tubing (water line) and cut it to to the length you need (probably 5-10mm). Slide that inside the cap, and then insert the cable into the cap. This will shorten the cable (lengthen the housing) and take the free play out. But no adjustment on the new cap.
