Well I got batteries now. Here is My 83' FT500. Only 3200 miles on her. I did pull the baffle out of the muffler and modify the inlet tube for better flow and then reinstalled. Only thing wrong with it is the tachometer is broken. The PO lost the rubber plug out of the gauge cluster and when it sat up dirt dabbers build a nest in it. The spring for the needle was almost eroded away after I took the nest out.
Here she is.
When the system fails you, what then?? Do you fight it or just surrender and give up? If all seems doomed what is left to fight for? Is it just me or does the world seem to close in on you when you seem to be making ground? Options are dwindling down, what comes next? And in the words of Pink Floyd "Is there anybody out there". All I know is I WILL SURVIVE.
