Micky, just remember your a bit on the advanced side so when you get the new points call me . If your going to give it a quick ride, loosen the 2 studs that hold the plate and turn it CCW a bit BEFORE YOU RIDE IT

How many kicks did you need and what about the choke lever?

Remind me, we’re talking mikuni, right? Lever down is enrichener (choke is technically incorrect!) on, and up shuts it off.
