I didn't get a chance to do anything to the wing today. I did put new sparkin' bolts in the Mighty ST 1300 and top off the coolant, and get all that old October 2017 air out the tires and replaced it with May 2018 air :). I also gave it a bath

once home from henry's today I put the new odyssey battery in the wing and fired it up. then put some 2018 air in the tires before taking a short ride down to my friends shop. that's what the 35,000 mile sparkin' bolts looked like when I took them out of the Mighty ST 1300

Cleaned and rebuilt the front master cylinder, mounted, filled, and with the help of the daughter bled. I now have front and rear brakes, and.... Oh, yes! She started!

Filled the tank on the '78, added both Berryman B12 and Stabil and rode around the business park (about 5 miles). Rolled her back into the corner. Probably won't fire back up until September. (When it'll only be around 100F).

Pulled the tach apart and lubed with silicone spray that I once used on RC helicopters. It is very thin and very slick, and thins other lubricants it mixes with. The tach had been very sluggish and was obviously not indicating correctly. I think I have it fixed now. Pulling that apart was tedious, but putting it back together wasn't that hard. I have to admit that I practiced first on an old speedometer that I have and it was much harder the first time. After testing the tach with my battery drill and remounting it, I mounted up the mufflers that I bought for the bike. I used fiberglass cloth that I doped with high temp copper RTV for the gasket between the muffler and header end. For a clamp I used the clamp that was on the original Honda muffler. Pictures to come on my build thread after I mount the saddle (which I won't get until next week).

I tried to pull the slave cylinder, and I've since read it's quite easy if you pull the alternator. I really didn't see an advantage but I'll try again in the much cooler morning w/o the alternator.

Here's my morning in emojis...

Got home, and strait to the motor vehicle place, tags and plates and title finally done.
Second part of day was cleaning up the wireing and installed the new brake light switch and then installing the front calipers then took it on a 70 mile test run. It is running lean so will need to change out the main jet, yay me!
Lastly installed the 7807 IC chip to replace the 7volt regulator.
