Refurbishing a 1980 Yamaha SR500

Changed the oil, and cleaning the oil strainers. This bike has 2 strainers and a filter. Also cleaned and oiled the air filter.
The muffler got de-rusted, de-chromed. and painted. Parts got an hour in the oven at 200F to cure.
Got a shop manual in the mail. And getting a section of the old drive chain ready to be a new tool.

Reassembling the front brake.

I was still having carburetor issues at this point. Turns out without the air leak the engine was being flooded. So more carburetor work.
Also found some (and made some) issues with the timing. Things got better later on though.
