It's all good. Do you have a copy of Guzziology? It's very helpful. I thought my V-1000 engine was very easy to pull apart, check everything and then put it back together. Rick at MG Cycle was pretty helpful as well as several members here. You gotta get it running before spring so you can enjoy the burst of spring out in Oldham county. I used to live up there and loved to ride 329 and 1694 as the leaves were coming out. Cool bike you've got.
