Thanks. I've already found that site and bugged those guys for a few tips/pointers. I really think I'll be good to go after this weekend. I'm planning to swap the timing belts, check/adjust valve clearances, throw new pads on it, and change the oil. May also check the timing. I've read that may be needed after changing timing belts. I've had a pretty lousy year or two with vehicles. What can go wrong does. This was just the latest example. My dad had ridden that bike for the last 4-5 years without ever doing anything but change the oil, filters, and front tire. He never had a bad moment with it. I've been dead in the water twice in less than a week!

Bike now has all new fuel lines, new rear tire, almost new front tire, the bike doesn't leak a drop of anything. Amazing what a difference the new rear tire made over the half inflated bald one! Made a similar tire change on a Suzuki GS1150 I had. Bought it with a spent rear tire and rode it while waiting for my new tire to arrive. Rode like a whole new bike when leaning it into corners. That tendency to stay straight up then suddenly fall in, was gone. Same improvement this time around.
