Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Thanks. that is one solution I have been afraid to try.

I have done these things:

Make sure the C clip (I guess that's it's official name now) is installed right-side-up. So that the pencil stub looking valve is hooked into the C clip, not just resting on top of it.

Make sure there is no obstruction (any speck will be enough to make it stick open or shut)

AND (this is a big one)

I let the carb lean about 30 degrees to the right. For some reason I am getting much worst mileage (about 60 mpg) and getting a much higher top speed.
I will not pretend to understand why but I'm gonna go with it.

If anyone has an explanation I am all ears.
