Update:

Ok I rode it for too long on the HWY and warped the head.

We pulled it apart and found that the head had a 2 thou clearance in places.

So the head was taken to the machinist to be shaved.

We got it back in a few days and put it back on, redid the tappets, and tried to start it up.

No luck, no go, we found out I had a flat battery, I got a new battery and now she goes. Yeah :D

I have been riding it around town, taking it alot easier, this time.

Well a few rides have passed and all I can say is, when can I get back on it again?

All I think about is my next ride and that's not soon enough.

I love it and on the weekend, with the help of SGT and Glynn we put the black exhaust wrap on it.

Here's some pics I hope you like them.

Ok The bike is still running but I am getting some miss firing and mainly in the mid range of the throttle.

I have reset the tappets and that helped a bit, but still the same.

I am running a boyer electronic ignition, the battery is new and always goes back on a trickle charger after a ride.

Clues???????? :?

great to see a twin leading shoe drum brake on your chop. I'm looking for one for my shovel.
