Had a friend with a new Suzuki 1000S... One day he dropped it off the stand and ever so slightly bent the handle bars and and put a small dent in the tank.... I have the bars on my bike and he bought a new tank from Suzuki ...... he said he didn't want the bike unless it was perfect ..... sometimes when I look at your bike I think of him saying that Daveo. ;)

Skidded under a stopped car's rear bumper one time, back in 2000. The front fender crumpled over the tire. After two hours working the dent out that day, I rode with the battle scar all that season and into the next. :huh:
Johny's had a brand new fender on ebay, promptly claimed. Best $75 ever, and now a few tiny stone chips. Never seen another NOS Luminous Passion Red one for sale since :huh:
Last summer was the pit. Some idiot drove his car up my rear tire at a stop light. Smashed the rear fender all to hell, but fortunately I had an old spare. Good as new (almost) still.
I relish new-like used acquisitions, and tolerate old age for the most part. :)
So there... :lol:

First thing people look at is the fender, tank, seat then the engine.

:) Please explain the choke function of a VM33, compared with the BS34?

It's an enriching circuit not a choke. A choke is a flap that "chokes" the carbs thus forcing more fuel than air.

Got my new vacume port adapters (AKA nipples) yesterday. They're for Yamaha fours. Two long and two short. They will work for the two inside being they are long enough to get to easily. I need to get two set screws to plug the holes the PO munged in, drill and tap new ones at the 5:00 and 7:00 position respectively. Carbs will have to come off again and will JB weld them in When I'm ready, could have made my own but $10 delivered I can do other things like my new cush drive rubbers I just got. That will be done today. I've been wanting these things for years. One thing at a time. :whistle:

Will you install them to be accessible by reaching underneath the carbs? I was thinking about that, where the best location would be, and also that you could tap the holes and thread them in with a coat of sealant on the threads, skipping the nuts and o-rings.

If you didn't have a provision to vacuum synch the VM33's, how would you be able to get them adjusted properly?
