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

I had mistakenly put too much oil in the tank, so my fuel/air ratio was @ 50:1. Carb adjustments were made to let the engine run better. After 5 days of commuting, I was down almost 60 ounces. I decided to add another 2 quarts of gas. Mixing this amount with 100:1 would raise my incorrect mix better than 83:1 f/a ratio.

After the fillup, the bike wouldn't idle. Being that I would be riding on the sidewalk to McD's down the hill, I left my tools and backpack @ home. Fortunately, I was able to use my fingernail to adjust the carb adjustments.

Bike riding fine now, ready for the commute on Monday.
