Default Re: Tickler air leak?

Fixed. The only thing I had changed since running it last was the muffler. Had a fancy chrome cat type laying around. The one with the heat shield and that can be dismantled.
Reinstalled the original black one that came with the GT4 and bike runs great. Has been my fastest and quietest motor so far.
The chrome one is incredibly restictive, and I quess the coil glows red attempting to incinerate unburnt fuel. A cat that just heats metal instead of a substance. I like the low tech. With a little thought the it can be modded for increased performance.
Used the chromy because the mounting flange is heavy duty. The Grubee flange is thin and can easily leak. So I used the stock muffler mount to tighten things up.
Thanks to all for the ideas.
