Got the shovelhead home

It's about 25 miles from Lummie's place to mine. It took me about an hour down the surface streets. Going up through the gears and back down through the gears. Bike kickstarts real easy enough. The Dyna-S is the great. Front exhaust pushrod and maybe intake pushrod are leaking. I found out that keepers are too short for a stroker. Clutch is definitely a touch tight. It's not idling correct and felt a little lurky at steady low throttle. Got worse as the engine warmed. Probably put the 31 back in. Snap ring from the clutch lever pin is gone, but I didn't loose the pin luckily. Very smooth motor as far as vibes go though.
