Half-Fast Fred


« on: July 21, 2022, 12:26:00 AM »

I recently did an 8 day Moto-Camping trip with my Daughter on one of my Non-FJ bikes. While I was out riding Casper was having the carbs worked on by Dale Sharp (Shaarth). I picked up the bike the other day and WOW what a difference. Now I think Casper is ready for a Dyno run

I got Casper out for a short Breakfast run this morning.

PS.
I can do a trip report of my Father/Daughter Moto-Camping trip. It was done on the 2008 VFR800 though. A couple of Teaser photos of the trip.

Thanks Robert, Yes, I remember now. That was the largest Fred could go without machining the case.

Half-Fast Fred

I had the original 1990 carbs on Casper with the jetting sized for the 1297cc motor. I tried to make adjustments, but could not get a stumble to go away. I took Casper to Dale along with the RPM carb bank that was originally set up for the 1297cc motor, but had sat unused for 5 years. Dale disassembled the RPM carbs and with information from RPM got everything sorted out.

Fred your a lucky man. Having a daughter who wants to do kool stuff with her dad. Glad Casper is getting sorted out.

Do you still have the V Max. My neighbor kitty corner to my back yard came to introduce himself to me today. Asking if I might help him with a mint 82 650 maxim. 6200mi. Given to him by a coworker. Everything but a spark. He said a friend just offered him his 6 bike collection for $5000. One was a 72 cb 350 with 2000 miles on it. The other one that caught my attention. Was a V Max. He says they are all just about mint. Just haven't been run in years.  I told him I would be interested in the V Max.  But I couldn't afford to give him anything for  it until next year.  He said " Just take it and put it in your garage right away. And get it running. And you can pay me when you get the money". I sure hope he decides to buy them.
