    I make the same mistake all the time, but the town we went to was Waterville, not Watertown. Watertown is near Fort Drum, and the Canada border. Good salmon fishing there. Waterville is a much...

    I had plenty of twists and turns since the last post here - Just as I was setting up to do a sync, the stock carbs, which had just been rebuilt, got partially gunked up again (see "white silt"...

    A quick picture, which isn't great and is partially cut off, of my ZRX with my son on it today next to the Roc Star restaurant / ice cream hangout in Waterville, NY.

    We (my boys and I) managed to get three bikes on the road at once, and rode through Clinton, NY to Waterville, where we had a great lunch at Roc Star, then found some minor twisties on hwy 315.

    I discovered that my boys GW250 brake lever works, borrowed it and managed to get a spirited ride in this afternoon - finally! Had to re-bleed the rear brakes, but I don稚 use them that much,...

    So... after weeks of working on my ZRX1100, I finally got her out for a little test ride. It went quite well, aside from a little popping on deceleration.

    And then... I was turning it around in a...

    Hey, Pete:

    My wife thanks you for the Kit Kats - her favorite.

    Almost there...

    Tank is clean and back on, everything is refilled, tight, etc... and I知 waiting on a battery.

    Runs and idles great, so far.

    Thanks to KWICK my carbs are running very nicely, as far as I can tell while running on the race stand anyway... thanks, Pete.

    Still finishing up cleaning my tank, and might be looking good for...

    Found my #3 carb was broken today, which might well explain why it was running badly before its long hibernation. A corner of the carb body was broken off under the cap. KWICK is fixing me up with a...

    Re: vm33"s

    Well, my VM33 carbs have seen better days... managed to get them off today (hardest part was getting the lower throttle cable loose) and took off the caps and float bowls, and two of the four are in...

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes! Good to be back.

    Thought I'd post a couple more pics... these aren't meant to be pretty, just to document the "before" state of the project.

    Re: vm33"s

    Old thread, I know...

    I have VM33 carbs on a bike I知 starting to revive. I just wanted to say that, before electrical and medical issues got in the way, these carbs were very dialed-in for my...

    Good to know some of you are up this way - I occasionally take the train over to Rochester to hear music, sometime freeload on recitals at Eastman (incl free food after), and visit Bernunzios music...

    OK - couple of quick pictures of the current state:

    Actually not that much "custom" on this particular bike, I have ZX11D wheels with the bright rims, pods, stock carbs, ted's (?) advancer, jet...

    Cool (this definitely isn't the zook GS site) ! Pics coming soon.

    OK, I have a few pics to show - I don't want to post in the wrong place, though, or more than one. I suppose this could be either the beginning of a project, or it could be the current state of a...

    PAR?! Yeah, I had hired some guys that used to work there. I still see their POS (Point of Sale, not the other one) terminals at McDonalds and such. They had some good software engrs.

    BTW, Thanks for the tip on doing the carbs... might just take advantage of that. The one good local shop is buried in work for months, and his prices went way up. Plus, he's more of a Harley guy and...

    That trip was on a '97 Concours, btw. I put a lot of miles on that one.

    You are way up there... closest I've been on wheels is Quebec city, although I've flown into St. Johns, Newfoundland. Some of my best motorcycle trips were definitely in Canada. The highlight was a...

    I wouldn't be surprised if we got more snow here, too; it happens. Sorry to hear it is still going on up there, though. Hang in there, brother. It'll be Spring soon.

    Wow - up around Watertown. Lots of Amish up that way these days. Still a lot of farming up that way. And great salmon fishing. They weren't very far from Canada. Most folks think I'm near the city...

    Walkill - yup, that's about 3 hours from here, around the Catskills, maybe 4 with more scenic routes.

    I'm way north of there, in what is more accurately called Central NY, but everyone in the...

    Thanks for the welcome, guys!

    I'm around Utica NY in New Hartford - thankfully it isn't snowing today, and it might even hit 50 degrees. Might even be time to take the snow tires off the car &...
