Back to working on the bike, pulled the carburettor out the other day and thought I had an oil leak causing the oil to piss out all over the engine, then I saw my hand covered in blood and realised I'd cut myself. Not exactly pleasant but I'll survive. Carb is pretty dirty, not even yellow but green stains and buildup so I'll probably take it apart and throw it in an acid bath.
Also bought myself a battery charger/maintainer as they were on sale on amazon and it certainly doesn't hurt to have one, so that is happily charging the battery on the benelli
The more I remove bits off the bike the more I think about a complete rebuild, but I'll leave that decision making for later.
