So I think im kinda in panic mode before the baby comes. Oh yeah, im having a baby girl, her name will be Kaelyn, she will have dirty fingernails when she comes of age. But yeah, I wanted to make sure my remaining two bikes were up and running to their best.
I did redo the sebring a couple months ago with a fresh ring, new points (which jessie of the cutters melted:), and a reduction to a 15:15 carb since I had considered selling her. She did dreamy at the Seattle rally with awesome gas milage and superb reliability. I did put a dent in the tank by hi-siding because I was not paying attention...Life goes on.
The ol' Beretta has been sitting idle since I have not been able to get a proper head scenario. In conjunction with the Wizard himself, (NAZ), he was able to cut me a head to use with one of my copper gaskets and achieve a nice 1mm squish and airtight seal. Another thing that brought great success for me was the switch to the 4DH7 needle that gives a smoother throttle response through the positions and a much different top end. Apparently the 5N13 needle is for bigger carbs (28-34) but was probably a brand/application specific needle since you cannot find it in the mikuni catalogue. If you didn't know the minarelli Beretta 38 is rocking a V1 with a puch Gila kit, TM24, CDI, BK-100 pipe....Nom.
