Well not really..

But after the following..What a difference!!

-Cleaned the K&N pods..They were nasty

-Cleaned the crankcase breather hose filter
-New plugs
-Oil change..Full syn.oil..Whatta difference.
-Sync'd the carbs..Biggest difference!!!

My bike used to stumble betwee 3-4k rpm. Now it's smooth straight thru..It's got that "pulling you along" feel as you run thru mid-range...And the new & adjusted throttle cable really helps!!

Rode into work today...about 50 miles..I didn't want to stop..

But now it's time for the ride home..Whatta difference the littlest things do..

If you've got more time on your hands (and a garage on a rainy-day) go ahead and dis-assemble the clutch and brake levers, clean all the bug-carcasses and other accumulated gack out of the slots they ride in, and lube `em up with some grease... makes a big diff in "feel" there too. Also, too many riders neglect adjustment and lubrication of steering-head bearings, and swingarm linkages.

Not like it's worth spending a sunny, warm day wrenching, but it's definitely worth your time when you *have* time.

The little things really *can* make a *huge* difference in how much fun it is to ride `em.
