Mebbe an extra 1000 foot or so makes that much difference? My travel is many times near the foot hills so I am sure it's at near 7000? A 258 AU Atomizer is the leanest they make. Thats what I used on the 19 and the 21mm. Until I gave atomizers etc a go it was futile.

In the beginning days about 47 mph on a china H.T.. Of course it is a matter of time till those quite running when asking a lot from them.

My first Morini s6t got it to 55mph on a straight away and ran out of road. I never tested for higher speeds after that. Because I had built that entire bike from scratch it was mandatory to properly scare myself and test it lol.

Now I just gear out to be very playful now days and top out around 40mph.
Alright Goat I'll look into the needle and atomizer. As of now i don't have much faith in that 21mm carb. I had nasty hesitation on acceleration and it ran super rich. That was after I swapped all parts from the 19mm to the 21mm (with the needle position all the way down, leanest position). Then I swapped all the parts back to the 19mm carb with the needle position all the way down and it ran great.

I don't understand how opening your carb intake diameter by 2mm would cause this problem? I'm calling today to see what's up.
