Also added a couple hand fulls of chrome hardware where things were apart.  Might as well....  Who cares if you can't see this and some of the other bits once the tank is back on :huepfenlol2: .

Part of the cam job was also a new throttle body.  Original on the right and on the left a Marelli throttle body that's gone through BC Gerolamy's upgrade.  Cleaned up in a few areas and taken out to a whopping 42mm from the stock 38mm.  There's not a lot of Marelli options out there anymore.  The few there are are very expensive. 

Gerolamy does this for about $300.  Very quick turn around as well as they have units prepared and ready and ship on receipt/inspection of your core.  Should anyone with an old Marelli bike be so inclined and need to borrow a core to save a little time let me know.  I've got a couple of stock Marelli throttle bodies.  One could be used as a loaner if need be to save some time.

Tucked under that tank is the new throttle body with all the fuel injection parts and sensors transplanted.  A bunch of new o-rings to replace all the old ones but that's it for other TB parts.  New red SE plug wires to replace the 10 year old originals also.  Also a pair of new fuel lines.  10 years old so why not?

Head bolt bridges and fuel lines cover to finish things off a bit more.

Notice here what looks like a chrome washer up against the head.  It's an .080" spacer to account for differences in the heads.  Dave Mackie was initially going to touch up the stock heads for me.  Nothing fancy.  Not wanting to do a lot.  Biggest thing was improve a hot spot around the exhaust port that's not ideal to begin with. 

When speaking with him about the job, however, I mentioned that I had a pair of newer heads from a 96" motor.  "Use them" was his immediate response.  I wasn't looking for huge perfomance gains here.  The man was honest enough to talk himself out of some extra work saying these would be fine for my purposes.  All I did was go down to a buddy's local machine shop one evening and give them a fresh valve job.

The new heads, however, are "shorter" at the boss for the breather mount than the older heads.  That's why the spacer is there.  Necessary to fit the breather.

Hawg Wired's little plug and play amp and their component speaker set.  The garage door opener is noticable in there also.  But that was done right after the bike came home last February or March.  Sometime later still have one of the handlebar mounted HD MP3 players to mount also.

And last but not least a new right side saddlebag lid.  The original was pretty dinged up when I got the bike.  Couple of nasty scratches if you looked close.  This was another eBay score for just under a hundred bucks plus the shipping.  Installed this a little earlier than most of the other bits.  But what the hell, still showing off parts.

The new throttle body set up without issue.  TP sensor on the old Marelli bikes is easy to calibrate with a digital meter.  Aside from that the only other TB setup required is setting the mixture screws.  Even without having been tuned yet for the new work it still ran out decently in the only short run its been on (crappy roads lately).

Engine sounds nice too.  Gears are quiet.  Whole thing now has that solid lifter sound to it that you get from gear drives.  I like that sound ::) .

Looks good, great job. :bigok:


You should have diamond cut and done some powdercoat while it was apart to really set it off. ;) ;D
