  1. Sorry for the late reply, my browser had an issue and was NOT showing new pages. Becky was sent home on 12-31 and is doing pretty well. She speaks normally, just forgets a word now and then. She gets around pretty much on her own. She is having a week full of follow up appointments this week, and more in the weeks to come. She has some weakness on the left side but is able to use all limbs.
  2. Terry Crawford had located an alternative source for the Keihin CV carbs at a lower price. You might want to check with him.
  3. Becky was improving very well and had an excellent weekend. She had a follow up with her kidney specialist and they were satisfied enough that her next appointment was set for 4 months. However, on the way home she developed some numbness in her elbow which spread to her hand. I took her to the ER and told them I was suspicious of a stroke and this was shortly confirmed. Due to the fact that I got her there fairly quickly she was well within the window where a clot buster drug could help protect her brain and she was placed in the Intensive Care Unit. Yesterday she could speak but had aph
  4. Thanks for the kind thoughts and wishes. We appreciate it.
  5. The breathing issue worsened, called the doctor who referred us to the Urgent Care facility, who referred us to the emergency room. Turned out to be pulmonary edema caused by the discontinuance of the fluid pills. They restarted these and sent her home, her breathing has improved considerably but still has a way to go.
  6. As well they should. One of the worst things a store manager can do is give the company a bad reputation by disobeying policy.
  7. Improving slowly. Her kidney function is climbing but the toxins not removed cloud her mind. And she has picked up some kind of cough (not Covid, she was tested) that is slowing her progress, but she is headed in the right direction.
  8. Sounds like you got a bad manager. The local store here would not let that missing box prevent them from ordering another. Good luck with your press. They come in very handy.
  9. I have no experience with KMZ engines but the electronic ignition is basically the same as the older Ural units. First question - does your small rotor with the set screws have the 2 holes in it as shown in the video? Obviously the slotted rotor has no matching holes, but at 1:59 in the video you can get a good idea of their relation to the slots - keeping in mind that it's inverted to the way it mounts. Upside down the slots are pretty much at 10 o'clock and 4 o'clock, which converts to 2 o'clock and 8 o'clock with it right side up. The central mount is shown with the cam slot at 9
  10. Becky was taken to the ER about midnight Thursday evening for confusion and disorientation which turned out to be due to kidney shutdown. She had 9% kidney function. Dialysis was performed on Saturday and will be repeated as needed to clear the toxins from her blood which is affecting her mental state. She is showing some improvements but only partially understands why she is in the hospital. I wanted this group to know why any requests relating to website functions are not being handled by her. John will have to assume these duties in the interim.
  11. They were still alive and kicking on the East coast, from Maryland to North Carolina, until Covid hit. I usually attend 2 a year - both multi day events with camping for those who want to camp, rides, and great group meals.
