good call Ray. 500strong visited me today for a service, good thing. ZERO clearances on #2 exhaust side ,003" on #1 exhausts.
He did good on his carbs, we went through them regardless. I performed some voodoo on the seats.
We then performed the rest of a normal service.
Unfortunately, after reporting "very smooth" all 60 miles home to his exit (his longest stint ever), I think the dreaded tank vent issue struck him.
In the future that must become part of my normal EX service. I'll likely ride in to his 'hood in Brooklyn next weekend to take care of that.
The tight valves were a time bomb, we're both glad he decided to do this.
500Strong a very nice fellow, 28 year old, very polite, intelligent, respectful. Hard working all day, attentive, watching, learning, assisting me through every phase. Good guy.
