Well, spring's here.. snow is gone in the lower elevations, ice is melting on the river, and the TW is back to running lean, instead of not running at all!
Pulled the carb on sunday afternoon in the sun and fixed my vacuum leak, got it running on last year's gas and took an 8-10mile ride out into the woods nearby to have lunch by the river:
Was an awfully nice day: about 50F, and a cool breeze. Now to siphon off some of next week's paycheck and get some jets and gaskets on order from stadiumyamaha
1997 TW, well loved, a bit modified.
