That took a week. Since then Rocket was re-tired and the Honda returned. Razzo still balks after trying a few fixes.
Now I have a trip to North Carolina planned next weekend. And Rocket is running better than it has since before it broke in the 2014 Cannonball.
Riding Rocket instead of the Honda presents a couple of concerns. One, is that it might not make it. Two is that it has been hesitating when accelerating between ten and forty mph. (I think it is the heavy rollers that I installed a while ago.) And the third is that if I ride the Honda, I can plan a highway route that will get me there in seven hours instead of nine taking the roads better suited to the old scooter.
I think I am going to give Rocket a shot. It's longest ride in a while. And I will be bringing tools and spare parts.
