The BMW Coldest Rally was a blast...even without my bike! I need hlep compressing pics to upload here. Please pm me if you can advise.

Marty brought his canopy, which at low position allowed us to huddle by the fire while others ran from the brief rainstorm :great: From now on I'm bringing canopies. Good job Marty on saving the day!
I agree with you on leaving the shops alone.  I bought the Clymer manual the day after I bought the bike back in ‘06.  I had done all the work on the bike until the engine started stalling.  I’ve changed the engine oil, differential oil, brakes, mounted and installed new tires, changed brake fluid, and other small service stuff so getting my hands dirty is something that I enjoy.  But when I read through the process of how to tune carbs it seemed insurmountable.  Taking off the gas tank, removing the carbs, and going through the tune-up process would leave me with a garage floor covered in parts.  The thought of not being able to put it all back together or having the bike end up running like it does now made me a little apprehensive.  Also, living vicariously through my kids and working long hours really limits my time that I have to work on my bike.  That’s how I ended up at a shop – let them do the work which would free up my time to ride the bike instead but that didn’t work out well at all.  You’re dead-on on your point about cleanliness.  About 50 miles after leaving the shop the first time it started running rough at low speeds.  I took it back and the mechanic said that the carbs were dirty again because I had debris in my fuel.  He said that he also found holes in the black, dome-shaped diaphragms so those were replaced too.  The shop did a full tune-up including spark plugs and valves but I’m wondering if they even did that correctly.  Thanks for the info Bud and RWulf and the advice for becoming a full member.  Hopefully, between doing that and finding a member that could lend me a hand, I’ll get the bike running like new again.

I just replaced the battery in my 02 C10. I had last replaced it Jan.2009. Can't believe it lasted that long since it was an Everstart from  Wal-mart. I'm lucky with batteries though, got 15.5 yrs. from the original Motorcraft in my 94 Mazda B4000 and 14 yrs. from the original Yuasa in my 2002 Prairie 650.
