    Kevin, I'm sending you a pm also.

    Are you still coming to Arkansas in October. Its beginning to look like you and I might be the only ones. I'm OK with that. It leaves us all of the flexibility.

    But I haven't made reservations yet. So lets get down to details. Where are you coming into Oklahoma or Arkansas from? Do you have firm dates? Where are you going when you leave Oklahoma. I'll try to work out some riding that coincides with your schedule.

    Also my home phone is 972-623-0859, cell phone 972-977-3390, email [email protected]

    I just put the Austone taxi tire on my 1500 SE and it rubs on big bumps what did you do to modify yours.

    I'm also from Minnesota and have obtained a 87 1200A Gold Wing. I'm in the middle of rebuilding the carbs and have a question about the Clymer manual info. On page 152, Figure 39, they have an artists sketch of how to adjust the float. They say the adjustment is made from the body of the carb to the float arm.. But the sketch seems to indicate that the measurement is made from the body to the top center of the round float.. The 7.5 mm distance as I current try to find it, seems to come from the arm (where it molds into the round float). But that's a real hard verification to make. Why did they not give you an indication at the top of the round float which is much easier to see (and how the artists rendition indicates). I want to make sure that I get this right, primarily because the bike currently smells very "fuelish" at any rpm. Its so bad my partner won't ride with me. Any thoughts as to where the "proper" place is to correctly measure for that float adjustment?

    I'm located in Dellwood, on the east side of White Bear Lake and 10 miles west of Stillwater. So we're only about 40 miles apart. I love riding the St. Croix River Valley for local rides.

    My '83 is at about 77K. It's been a real PITA compare to the GL1200 and 1500. I've bought a '97 Dodge Neon coil pack, just haven't installed it yet. Trying to ride more instead. Winter and a heated shop will see it done. Done the carbs, timing belts, etc. So just need good spark to finish it up. Kevin

    Glad you've got a good sense of humor! I have to watch myself in the general forum, which is why I deleted it, well that and I think I posted the wrong picture. Some folks are not as quick to get good natured humor and take offense. Glad you didn't!
