Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

I adjust the carb on my Tanaka 47R engine quite often.

When I changed tire diameter, I adjusted the carb.

When I swapped from 50:1 two-stroke oil to Opti-2 100:1 ratio, I adjusted my carb. When I inadvertently put the wrong mix in, I adjusted the carb.

I USED to carry a screwdriver in my pants pocket to adjust my carb. I ALWAYS worry about jabbing myself, if I fall off my bike.

So now, I adjust my carb's "L" and "H" settings with the fingernail on my forefinger.

It's much safer, and hey, it works!
