Cleaning/w@$#ing the tank, cleaning brand new carbs, rejecting to 42 and 130 from 38 and 125. Will be repacking those wheel bearings, replacing new rubber parts, hoses, gas lines, installing a quick crossover disconnect, carb hoses, many things. Will need a new battery, probably Yuasa again. Good project.

To Kote or not to Kote? That's the question!
Any advice is appreciated.

Yes, it begins on page 1 of this thread. This thread is entirely devoted to my 1999 Tourist overhaul (with a little detour covering my 2001 Patrol "refreshing").

:) I guess I should share, but this thread is 98% my journey of discovery, lovingly handcrafted to document my trials and tribulations (and to infotain). I can't help but be a little possessive. :D
