ok, i knew about the top and side covers. i worked on it a bit. the screen from the 14.9 dellorto is too big. it won't work. so i need a 12.12 screen and airbox combo. do you have a spare chris? i'd buy it off you.
i'll fiddle w/ it some more, but i'm not sure if getting the carb out and cleaning it is useful w/o a screen (or at least an airbox) since it'll get just as dirty again.
also ... i'd like to replace the kickstand, which is a bit weak and makes the bike very unstable (it wants to fall to the left). and also the foot bar (which is broken and bent towards the right). oh, and i need one more of those screws for the plastic side panels (i'm missing one on the left cover).
but it runs well so far. no major complaints. it's not as smooth as my bianchi ... the shocks are a bit stiff ... and i miss the high top end. but it's a nice comfy ride and pleasant enough all the same.
