Any air bubbles in a pipe or tube restrict the flow of a liquid. By closing the loose fitting, you stop the air entering the gas line.

I spent some time yesterday and today re-jetting my carb and I've got it really close to where it needs to be, but I don't think I'm there yet.

Tomorrow, I'm going to load the new map that Rico sent me and go for another shake down run.

Yesterday, it took me about an hour and a half to change the needle and the nozzle (the nozzle is the needle jet).

Today I changed only the nozzle which took me about half an hour.

Once you have the internal components close, you use the external adjustments to fine tune it.

The PSI is definetly more complicated than a Lectron. I'm sure the PSI will give a more precise AFR. With the lectron you get it easy or swear you bought another kind of carburetor, LOL. I was lucky; Kevin, the owner of Lectron got me two needles that just fit perfectly my applications: 94 Petro-Can gas and E85. Take me two minutes to switch needle.

Oh it has legs! I think they could be longer though with more tuning.

The Snow did stop. Unfortunately, it turned to rain! It seems that if it's not raining, I'm working or taking my kid to soccer or doing yardwork or planning our renovation or working on my "honey-do" list.

I thought it was going good, then one day after filling up with gas I noticed that there was gas pouring out all over my HOT engine. That really freaked me out. The gas line had come off of the fuel filter. After I got that fixed, my jetting was all messed up and the bike was running super rich - back to square one on the jetting. IF the weather clears up and I'm not busy I'm going to get the jetting as close as I can with the parts I've got. I've talked to PSI and I may need to do some customization of the slide to lean out a VERY rich condition just off idle. Time will tell - I don't want to go grinding on the slide until I'm sure jetting is not the cause. I can't see reversion being the culprit because of how rich it goes just off idle (less than 10:1 from a 14:1 idle).

Still working on this too. I talked to one of my co-workers who has a condo on Lake Pend Oreille and she gave me the name and number of another person who may have a place for rent during one of the last two weeks of August. Don't write me off yet! I REALLY want my bike to get into your shop.......
