Anyone in the local everett area with a 1" hole saw for doing the bafflectomy? Finally getting around to giving this a test drive.  2003 Concours, 46K  COG #6953  IBA 28004  http://mysite.verizon.net/slybones/Concours/connieMain.htm

Talk to Hill, I'm sure he'd let you use the same one we did mine with.    :eg:    Should only take, what, around an hour a side with that frickin thing?        Mike B / Gig Harbor, WA

Why not make your own surgical tool? I used a used horseshoe post for mine....anything 2 foot long, 1 inch or less in diameter, that you can hit with a hammer will do the job just fine. Rebar steel, 1/2 or 3/4 inch iron pipe (3/4 may be a tad too big on the outside diameter), etc.    In fact, it seems that you're less driving a hole through steel, than you are just popping off some kind of cap or cover.    And I do recommend the surgery....    Sahagan

Naw, did it at Chez Prior's place last October(?)  Or was it November?  Whenever it was.    Of course now I have to mess with the carbs...  I suppose that's what I get for screwing around with some Japanese engineer's hard work.  Mike B / Gig Harbor, WA

Hey Mike I have a new hole saw! It only takes about a minute a side now. ;p     Fred you can drop by and use mine.     As far as the carbs go SISF has a nice carb kit!  :p      Jim #7353  Everett, WA    Current Bikes: '06 Concours "NTRUDR",'84 Honda VT-500 Ascot  Past Bikes: '02 Honda 919, '83 Honda XL200R, '81 Suzuki GS-750E, '69 BSA 441 Victor    WB7JH - ARRL Life Member  U.S. Navy Retired

Jim, you done the carb kit yet? Mine is sitting here on the computer desk. At this point I am thinking of waiting for Colin to post a March tech session and will do it there for everyone to see.  2003 Concours, 46K  COG #6953  IBA 28004  http://mysite.verizon.net/slybones/Concours/connieMain.htm
