That's for sure XD I had previously been wondering why my spark plugs always were so nasty, and had figured that it was a result of the accelerator pump causing an over rich mixture. The stock carb is a normal CV, but with a throttle position sensor and the holes on the body that connect to the accelerator pump aren't drilled. I really hate the look of the blast carb, because the accelerator pump is totally molded into the main body, with the place for the diaphragm spring and everything! It just looks lazy and incomplete. Anyways, I had thought the addition of the accelerator pump was making it rich, and fouling the plugs, but nothing I did to the carb was stopping the fouling. A little research and looking closer at the plug would have solved that problem much sooner XD

Anyways, yeah, definitely happy to have figured that out.

Also, I'm making a totally different exhaust system now. The stock header goes down and under the engine to the where the muffler sits.
I have cut up the stock header and I'm routing it around to the back of the cylinder and through the hole where the air box used to be. Here's a link to my Instagram video explaining that.

I ain't never...
...and probably never will again...

That's some creative re-engineering at it's finest. That bike is so far beyond odd it's cool. I'm hanging around waiting to see where this build goes.
