Brian, I hope to make this wonderful 'day after' event.

If any of you are interested in stuff... I have a 1986 C10  saddle bag, 2 C10 cylinder heads , 2 PR4 tires (80% used but not trash) and several 1000 older (1995 - 2005 ) motorcycle magazines (some bound and in mint condition)  that are all able to be given away to any takers. LMK and I will bring them on over.

OK, Who else is in for this!  Don't make me clean my garage for no reason.... :)

Seriously, One of the projects on deck will be to work Colin Snowberg's C10. He is having some carb issues.

Brian,
I plan on attending. It's been a while since I worked on a C-10, but this should be a good refresher course for what I need to do on my '01 that's been sitting for a while.

I'm planning to stop by.
Besides some snacks, I'll try to remember to bring the C10 laminated bolt/screw holder map thing I still have.

I stopped by Colin's place yesterday and picked up "Silverdammit".  Brian's 86 is tucked away in my garage waiting for some tender loving care on Saturday.

Since we will be working a C10, if anyone has a service manual either a factory or a Clymer's could you bring it along just in case?  I thought I still had mine, but I can't find it.  I must have gave it away when I got the FJR.

I have both the Kawasaki Service Manual and a Clymer's. I'll bring both of them. I also have a spare Kawasaki manual covering '86 thru '90 model I'll bring for Colin to keep.

Brian, Thanks again for hosting (and feeding us)! 

With all the unique stuff on Brian's bike, I felt he must have been there watching us (and smiling a little) as we try to figure it all out. 

CU next time to put it back together.     :beerchug:

Brian H, myself and Colin got the “Snowberg Express” C-10 running last Friday.
That is one heavily modified Kawasaki and should be ready for many more miles.
Please include Colin on any ride invites.
Cheers!
