    Through a battery pack on the bike and it fired up. Needs to have choke on to run but it runs very well Sounds perfect engine sounds quiet and nice. Definitely going to pull the carb and replace it with a takeoff carburetor from an '06 I have on the shelf. After I go through it jet it etc. Should be ready for the road as soon as I get a day to work on it. Very happy it starts and runs and sounds so nice.

        Took tank off and carve off. Plugs very black and sooty... intake manifold looks fine no cracks at all. Tank clean. Carb jutted incorrectly PMS out way too far float was a little off. But it did have the Barons adjustable needle but the clip was on the third groove and the main jet was a 175 instead of a 172.5. But it did have the 40 pilot. I have extra jets here so I got all this done yesterday and then hopefully will finish it up today and ride it out a little bit. The new fuel pump that was on there was an aftermarket one-off eBay and it vibrated and made more noise and you could imagine. I was going to leave the fuel pump assembly on but did not want to buy a new OEM fuel pump and had an extra 3 mm needle valve here so went full pumpless. being a 1700 with the 4750 rev limit and this two into one pipe and the open air cleaner with the jetted carb this thing should be a real running beast.

        Cut down petcock tube 3/4 in. cleaned petcock and screens

        Installed 172.5 main jet, 40 pilot jet, 3mm needle valve, set float height 5mm above seam, cleaned carb, removed inlet screen on elbow, Barons adjustable needle clip on 4th grove with on washer above and white spacer and washer below. Replaced bowl screws with Allen head bolts, replaced plastic enricher cover with aluminum.

        Vented gas cap

        Blew out rollover valve with compressed air

        5/16 fuel injection hose from carb to petcock
        3/8 fuel hose reroute pcv under bike

        Capped nipple on intake manifold/AIS removed. Inspected intake manifold no cracks

        Cleaned/pulled K&N filter

        New NGK 5129 plugs gapped @ .035

        Contact cleaner all electrical connections

        Emptied out all old gas and inspected tank (rust free)

        Removed fuel pump/bracket/assembly and hard line going to carb But this time I did leave the motor mount stay lol

          Garage pics. Hopefully test ride it today and change oil/filter and transfer case fluid and then this week inspect pulley nut, belt tension, wheel alignment and probably flush the brake fluid....then a deep clean and put up for sale.

          ....unrelated topic....anyone looking for a 2006 Road Star in great mechanical condition for $3650?? LOL

            Runs perfect. Pulls hard very fast that two into one pipe makes power. Think I have a guy local that wants it.
