Sounds like a good plan. Looks like you've got your hands full with the project you are working on anyway.
Finally got my brakes fixed. Another forum member, bwringer, figured out what was wrong and got them set up correctly. A lot more fun to ride when you know you can stop.
Have the tank off right now trying to figure out how to take some dents out. Plan to strip and paint the body work early in the spring (waiting for it to get warm enough) and then ride the thing. Need to figure out some saddlebags or better tailbag so I can commute to work more comfortably. Not a fan of backpacks.
Hang in with the Stinger--it will keep me entertained while it is too cold to work on mine. :)
