BILLY IS AWESOME!!!
« on: August 13, 2013, 10:05:13 PM »
I just want to say that Billy is the man. I sent him a set of what I thought were pretty raunchy looking carbs for my 84 vf1000f, and he sends me back a box of jewels. AMAZING WORK BILLY!!! They look, and more importantly work GREAT, and I haven't put the carb sticks to them yet. I wish I could do what you do.
Thank you so much.

Price just went up!  ;D 

j/k but thanks for the report. I do like getting happy feedback and so does Dana. She most likely is the one who made them shiny. I just put them back together.

Wait until people stare at your rack all the time. It makes me feel uncomfortable.

Great rack! I love that saying. I gotta find a young woman to model for me holding a Primo set of carbs. Make up an ad for Billy's Out Back. Any takers?  ;D

I just wanted to thank you again Billy, have been having a few issues with a ticking in the clutch basket, thought it might be a carb sync, so we adjusted the valves and put the sticks on the carbs. Didn't have to touch a thing! That's a pretty damn good bench sync you did there, my friend. Still have the ticking, but I know its not the carbs or valves. Going to change out the oil pump chain, hopefully thats it, it's REALLY sloppy. Who knows.
Thanks again for the great service

Well dang guys. I just got back in town from seeing the wifes family in Lubbock, and reading the posts. I've seen those comments about the loose chain on some of the other sites too, and thats all fine and good, but DANG, it's not gonna help me troubleshoot my ticking issue. Any ideas? Thanks for the responses guys.

  Does it go away if you pull the clutch lever?
