Well, I sacrificed a beautiful day (which is rare in NE Ohio) of riding the Supermagna to lower the engine on the X. Not really a hard procedure, and the way I see it, much easier than not lowering it. I took off the bowls one at a time and I can't believe
the crud inside. I didn't think stuff that big could fit through the filler hole in the top of the tank! .And the throttle cable- hanging on by one last unsevered strand!!!. I guess the fun now begins. I think I'm going to go for the Dynojet kit and the K & N separates for ease of tuning in the future. Based on the way some of the screws have come out, I think allen bolts are in order for the bowls and diaphragm covers, too. Any other tricks I should do elsewhere while they're out and the engine is hanging?
