Initiating something rear isn't beneficial only for public but for the person too. Congrats for being an author, keep it up.

Sonora Pass is tough too , lots of dumb riders. I’ve lost my brakes on that road several times , one time the plastic hub caps were melting and smoking , when we got it stopped , I said a great place for a picnic.  Grin

If you have access to a welder, spanning the frame dip from the end of the tank to the horns with pipe or angle can give you an extra 3" height. Ebay has plenty of seats in any style.
I bolted 2 straps across the dip and gained 2"+  height. All-in cost less than $40.
Cheers!  Cool  too cold to finish it yet.

I have owned my savage for 20 years, I am now 38 years old. It was the first thing I spent any money on when I went out on my own. I must admit I feel partially responsible for the lull in this forum. I stopped riding about 7 years ago because the carb needed to be rebuilt and, well, then I bought a couple houses and had a couple kids. I am looking forward to getting my bike back on the road soon and being more active here on the internet's greatest forum.

I do still think there is a lot of love out there for the savage (ls650, s40....) but forums are not what they used to be in general. YouTube seems to be the go to source for most people these days. Maybe time I started a savage specific youtube channel?

The last time I went 88/89 I was towing my car hauler trailer with my 3/4 ton diesel truck.  Ebbetts Pass had lanes so narrow I had all of 3" on each side of my trailer tires before I was riding on the paint.  I picked up a vehicle in Placerville for a project I am working on (yes, another project!).  Instead of taking that white knuckle pass I came home via 80 through Truckee and Reno.  Wide lanes and more of them the whole way home.  The extra 45 minutes added to the drive was worth it!

I know $350 seems like a lot to pay for a carb - but I have a lot of time and some money in making this carb ready to bolt on and go. It was stripped, ultrasonically cleaned, new parts installed. It has a new enrichment valve, new TEV diaphragm, new jets, new idle fuel screw, new float bowl gasket, new float needle, new O-ring on the float needle seat and stainless allen head screws.  There is likely $100 worth of parts in the rebuild.  Some of these Savage bikes are 20-30 years old and it is time for the rubber parts to be replaced (folks who complain about their bike backfiring when they close the throttle might want to replace the TEV diaphragm with a fresh and flexible one).

I can send you a PM with my email can open it no matter how many post you have.  And to build up your post count you can always post some jokes in this old thread.


Hey Dave - I didn't get any PM from you and still cannot PM.  I don't know many jokes to up my post count.

Need not to panic anymore, just pull your vehicle up, hold some tools, loosen the wheel nuts, exchange the tire with a new one and fix the nuts again....That's it not a rocket science at all Smiley
