That is quick. It takes me that long to get the US cleaner set up and all my tools on the table....

As can be imagined my tools, US machine within arms reach, always ready to go. Lousy weather this morning (no riding whatsoever) motivated me.

Mowed the lawn, errands, as a result a late start. I did make coffee, though.

Ducati owner provided feedback today...................

"Got everything back together and it's running good. Seemed a little odd at first, like it was only running on one cylinder and I couldn't close the choke, but it smoothed out once I upped the idle speed a bit. I was able to close the choke down after that. I am excited to ride it again. Thanks for the great service!"

Woo hoo!

OOOPS, was mislead. 1st item (more of a personal nature) a Craftsman pressure washer required a carb pull/clean. New fangled plastic carb body and innards, yup.
Starting 1st pull now with zero parts required.
