Welcome Luke (SparkyMoto) and The new Genuine G400C,
Welcome to Luke; Here's the Ad we used to hire Johnny Chrome and Luke:
-Motorcycle mechanic needed for 13
year old shop with locations on the east and west side of town. -You
must have actual experience with vintage Japanese motorcycles and be able to
prove it. -You will be asked to bring in your small tool box (rally box). -You
will be asked to perform a basic mechanical service to our standards to assess
your skills. -We
are not looking for someone who "has always dreamed of working on Harleys" yes,
you may work on the occasional HD, but the vast majority of bikes we work on are
from Japan and other places. -Don't bother if your idea of a custom build is $5000 worth of accessories that you bolted on "all by yourself". -We
are not looking for "Ricky Rocket" types, stretched swingarms and nitrous is
great for the track, but it's not what we do. -If you just put a power commander on your 'Busa and now it's Hella Fast...we commend you, but you probably want to look elsewhere.
looking for a guy who can do 8 billable hours of work in an 8 hour day. We're not here
to train you, we don't need an apprentice, nobody is here to hold your
hand. Motorcycle license REQUIRED
! Luke's Motorcycle kicks much ass, and basically got him hired:
The Genuine G400C
On the left is a Honda CB450 on the Right is the G400C
Removing Ethanol from gasoline, the proper way to clean a carb, and prepping for winter.
Yep, Guzzi made Army Tractors. and they were 3 wheel drive too.
Harley Davidson MT500 - that didn't become the official US military motorcycle
The Kawasaki KLX250 that DID become the Official US Military Motorcycle
Eventually they opted for the KLR650 designated as the M1030B1 - Gas powered (as god intended).
Then in the interest of NOT having a bunch of bullet un-friendly gasoline on the battlefield, they decided to go Diesel. Despite every ass-hat on the planet thinking they want one (I'm sick of hearing it already) the project failed and they all essentially died a horrible death. So there...quit talking about it. It was such a disaster Hayes Diversified Technologies doesn't even exist anymore. Nuff said. If you want a diesel motorcycle, you're not fascinating or clever or the first person to think about it. Even these guys couldn't make it work.
Diaphragm Carbs -
Yep, you're boned. You can't fix it, you're gonna have to buy another one.
You know who you are...I've been to your website...you totally did this just to move that thing along on Craigslist...you're the devil and you should be punished.
Oh, then I found a website that claims to make rebuild kits for these things.
