LMAO it's my OCD Julie, I just can't help but comment when I see something like that.

Glad to hear it's been rectified, I can sleep now  :)
Luckily I don't have any symptoms of OCD Ken but, during this rebuild I have bordered on paranoia on more than one occasion !!!!
 
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

Heading up to the 500 miles now with the running in of this rebuilt engine. Engine is feeling less tight each time I ride the bike, it is very responsive and running very, very well.  I have now started riding her quite hard, up to 80 mph @ 7000 rpm today and she would definitely give more if asked. This week I will change the oil and filter, have a final check to make sure all nuts and bolts are tight and then I will set the timing with a strobe light and set the carbs with the vacuum gauges. Both carbs and timing are very close just through me doing the static timing and bench sync of the carbs but they need  to be spot on.

I'm not going to post anything more on this thread as the damage has been repaired and the the problem resolved, so the job is complete. If I encounter any issues with the bike in the future, I will start a new thread.

Great thread Julie. I use it quite often for reference and probably will do through out my build. Thanks.  :)
