Well it made it into the sixties here today and I fired up 998 and went for a ride. I had completely taken apart the fuel system when I had it apart and even though the pump primed right away, there was still a lot of air in the lines. She turned over quite a bit before she fired, but is normal now. I really like my new clutch assembly; an aluminum basket from a 999 (complements of Emperor Nero
)Barnett aluminum clutch kit, and a Speedy Moto pressure plate, it is all very smooth and takes no effort at all to get neutral while stopped and running. My sister said I will probably be apprehensive when I ride again, I told her I will be fine and it's certainly not my first crash. I had a pretty big grin as I lofted the front end, took it to 10,000 rpm and started clicking gears. I was right.
