Original intake manifold extension was not going to seal properly. Didn't even try it.
I switched out the triumph manifold for a 32 mm mikuni one. The new extension now has a lip and an o-ring that fits into the manifold and seals very well.
Heat cycled yesterday. Gonna retorque the head this morning and reset tappets. Had to change the dish on rear wheel, so going to straighten that today. Waiting on rear chain and clutch cable to take a ride.
Without tuning it is starting on 2nd or 3rd kick. It is in the low 40's in the garage too.
