Should I even bother tuning now?

End of season is upon us. Recent temps are 10-12*C with humidity hovering around 40-50%. If I install a jet kit now how much trouble might I expect next year when temps hit 25-ish and humidity drop to 30-35%?

For that matter - how much change in temp/humidity does one really gotta worry about this?

I'm hoping to do some gear swapping tomorrow ..... just wondering if I should bother with drining fluids and such to clean the carbs and all that.

Lemme know. PATIA!

If you're changing the front sprocket you def want to archive the procedure. Pumping the clutch up from the botton is a bitch - bleeding from the top takes centuries. Bottom line - don't **** up the little rod.

Go read! Even then you may still have to pump it up from the bottom! I guess only then are you truly a Superhawk owner. Man this is PITA!

Yeah, but what oil should I use for the engine?




Okay, thank you for the helpful info about the clutch lever. It's GREATLY appreciated. I'll be sure to secure the lever to the handlebar.

So, got anything for carb tuning and weather?

Of course with MY luck the bike will somehow catch fire during any of this.
