For sure. The goal is some kind of tool-free solution. I'd originally thought about just using a screwdriver, but then I'd need a tool if I needed to access the battery, and nobody wants to ride...

Yeah it was really nasty getting the stupid seat off. I've got half a mind to try and hack up a better system since the part is broken anyway. How did you end up getting the seat off?

Yeah I dunno. I definitely recall swiping the keys to my dad's sport car a few times. Got good at setting the seat and mirrors back to he wouldn't notice when he went to work the next day. Personally...

Finally got the seat off my bike. Turns out the latch was fine, but the seat lock itself has an internal failure so won't turn the little rod that pushes the latch release. It's all a bit mickey...

Rough. Hopefully he remembers how much road rash hurts before making another bad decision involving a motorcycle

The rattle should get less noticeable at warm up - if it gets worse you could have a problem. I'd get in and do the valve adjustment, and give the area a visual

The cam chain rattle will be...

I'll say off the bat that I'm not a carb expert. They are a bit of a rare breed these days, and I grew up in the age where fancy computers were already figuring this stuff out for us, so take my...

I haven't done the modification, but as I recall, you're correct about the rear. The chain guard is plastic so you can always just cut to fit. Unsure about the front, so for the fender fitment you...

I'm not sure if it's normal, but mine does the same thing during warm up. Once the choke is off, mine runs pretty consistently

You should probably check out the choke and throttle cables and make...

I'm not a huge fan of the mod just due to the risk of over-stretching the cam chain. You shouldn't really be able to move it though. It sounds like it's fully slack (ie not tensioning at all)

FWIW I used assembly lube on the bearing surfaces - my rationale was that it was recommended by the service manual, and since you can't prime the oil pump without starting the engine, I liked having...

It was three dowel pins as I recall. I think the false pockets are a slightly different size (or maybe depth) so if it's unclear, it'd a good idea to test fit before gobbing it up. I mean it's...
