Tank stripped well, but side covers don't, and seem to melt?
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Did you put a chemical stripper on the plastic?
is not the best idea. wash it off with soapy water and scuff the paint with sandpaper. There's nothing to be gained by trying to get to "bare plastic"

Bummer about your sidecovers. I just picked up the twin to your bike last week, I'm wondering what's the purpose of the beer bong looking contraption hooked to your fuel pressure regulator?

You must mean the funnel to run the bike without the tank.

Yep that's what I meant. I took the easy way out with mine, I just yanked the FI and installed a set of new BS34's. It cranked about 3 rounds and fired right up. Sounds pretty good too. Now I need to buy a new battery, change the fork seals and it should be ready to go, hopefully to a new owner.

Mine fired up after a 12 year rest and new big bore rebuild. So far I am impressed with the FI durability. I'll see how it runs, but purrs at idle.

If I had planned on keeping this bike I may have tried to sort out the FI issues this bike had when I got it. The PO had removed the airbox and replaced it with K&N pod filters. Since I had a new set of BS34's sitting in the basement I didn't see any reason to fight the FI battle. I've already got someone who wants the FI stuff I removed and I really think the bike will be easier to sell with the carbs on it.
