    "It is very nice to have a roof that doesn't leak though."

    I spoke too soon.:dog:becca:kboom:baldy:baldy:baldy

    We STILL have a big leak in the garage (of course:cry), and maybe a couple of small ones in the house. I am keeping an eye on those.
    It's hard to say if the little ones are getting darker or not.....until they start to get bigger.:huh

    Should know to double check someone elses work.

    Decided to work on breaking the new top end in on the dizzer. So fired right up. Went inside to grab gear as it warmed up. Came out and it was dead. So hit the tires with some high pressure air then some low pressure air just in case. That is when I notice why it died. Fuel was turned to prime when I started it and I had turned it back to normal when I went inside. Well the vacuum line was not hooked back up so fuel flow stopped shortly after I went in. Then sat with the key on so battery was not willing to turn her over. Mark one up for having a kicker on it. One kisck and it came back to life. So rode to work. Let Tune, ADVHAWG, see the atomic baby poop helmet as I rode in. Parked at work and all was good. Went out to go find some lunch to discover a low front tire. So ate at work.

    Just went out and aired it back up. Will give her a few kicks and see how it does on the way home.

    This is much easier when you just ride them everyday.:D

    After making like a stairmaster with the step stool, I'm pretty sure the only leak is in the garage. I have marked the perimeter of the ones in the house with magic-marker, so I can tell i they grow. None of them felt moist:evil though.:clap

    There is a gap in the decking right above where the garage leak is, I'll bet that is the cause.:deal

    They have very good reviews online, and I thought that they went "above and beyond" so far as quality.:deal So I figure he will get it right, after I call them first thing tomorrow.

    The leak is only about eight feet from the entrance to the attic, so that is convenient at least.

    yep, I hate that.

    its why I get into so many ridiculous repair sceanrios my self, I can fix it 2 or 3 times, for cheaper, and learn more in the process than most of the "experts" ive been tempted to hire.

    it is aggrevating honestly, Id love to have someone to fix things that I knew would do good work, I would have way more free time!
