I have an offer for any DFW member than can come to my house and assist with a belt change on the 1198.
If someone will volunteer, I will feed a ribeye steak dinner, and free homemade bourbon.

Any takers?

I will have the bike stripped down to the Belt covers. I have a cam lock tool.
Just need help marking the belt, and then installing and tuning the new one.

I'm in Oak Cliff. If you are not too far I'd be happy to lend a hand. Just recently did the belts on my Streetfighter and 749.

Well I am serious, after we are done, I am grilling 2 in thick ribeyes and if you would like to try some superb bourbon, I am willing!
And of course, we have to post pics on the forum, of the party to make Scott jealous!

Normally, I would jump right on this. And as I was about to say, "When and where?", my 8 month pregnant wife kindly suggested for me to not offer. Her reason is valid, and I don't want to have the right side of your bike apart, belts off, tools (maybe a glass of bourbon) on the ground, to hear my phone ring b/c its delivery time and leave you stranded.

However, if you aren't too far off, I am in Plano, then I say perhaps we can do it. It shouldn't take too long as long as you have an app. for tuning the frequency of the belts.

What app do you recommend?

Thank you Pitt for your kind offer to help!
Namor, after you have the baby and things settle a bit, we can still hook up for a visit!

I will take you up on the first offer if I don't take you up on the first.

What platform do you have? Phone/pad? Android/Mac OSX etc/

I think it was datatune that was once used. I didn't actually do it, I just help get the belts on correct ensured timing and ran. It turned out fine.

I think you will be fine with any android tuning app that is well reviewed. I brought up the app b/c it's not my bike. If it was mine I would do the 45 degree twist route.

Glad you got her fixed up!
This bike was sitting in a barn for 9 years. Gas left in tank. Wasn't sure how many miles it had on it, and everything needing maintenance.
It was a mess, but before the Super Bowl it was running!

Stunning sound!

Yeesh. I bet you were able to pick her up for a song though. I love trying to find deals like that. It saves a little money on the front end and I enjoy a good project. And during said project I always like to say my free time is free. lol
