Yeah, well, I've been burning old gear oil, and ringing polished tools together, around the old Sport hoping to invoke . . .

 >     i Santi delle Tolleranze e i Monaci della Coppia      <

                                                                over my next effort to ride, and return ride, this Fifteenth South'n Spine Raid. :race:

 

Here is to "the Saints of Tolerances and the Monks of Torque" . . .  :drink:

 

If I make this one, I would like my Wrench emoji back . . .  :huh:

Aw! Pretty sure I’ll have to earn it back. SSR is 700-800 miles round trip, so that will tell the tale. I’d like to get about a thousand miles on this rear drive and new bearings before then. Also due for Tank Off Maintenance. Not sure if I’ll tackle the throttle body/ injector swap as well. . .

I have the answer to your need-miles conundrum.

Our "B&B” has a room (with path to bath :grin:) available.

I'll even meet you halfway to escort you on some stupendous W.V. and Va. back roads. :race:

@Andy - Can the throttle bodies be swapped without crabbing the frame slightly? (That's way we did it when these were changed under warranty at the dealer.)

weird...I was just looking into having the TB's bored out. Does anyone know if the larger 45mm Breva or even 50mm MGS/01 TB's would be a relatively PITA free swap? @docc Check out: http://www.maxbore.com/index.html

i did not even attempt it. I just took a throttle body off one side then slide the other out w/ the upper and lower 

mountings still on. 2 hex head upper and 2 hex lower. Probably easier to pull the left side off. right side has the

fast idle contraption on the bottom mount. I took it off of mine but some might prefer to keep it.

As far as mounting Breva TB's......don't know. My first concern would be the spigot size that mounts to the head.

many other concerns after that... not even considering what flow and mapping problems it might bring

So, this prompted me to start a Throttle Body thread. I feel certain it is something that is making my ridability an aggravation. <_<

I was trying to decide on a proper homage to the Inaugural South'n Spine Raid, 2004, "held" at the Athens Super8, just off I-75. I thought I might head up there Friday night, late, and take a leak in the parking lot. B)

Not that any of us-four Inaugurals did, but it seemed to be part of theme "up'n 'em parts" . . . :whistle:

We've come a long way, baby!  :mg:
