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

I bet there will never be a dull moment there for you!
I am a bit confused over your comment on the Sthil weed whacker 4-stroke though. You said it had straight gas in the tank. Do they not burn regular straight gas?
The intake valve problem sounds like it was a good test for you. At least your new boss understands that you are on a learning curve and is willing to work with you on it.
I bet it would be nice to video tape the lessons he presents as a way to review them in the future for reference.
The gas dampened rag technique sounds a bit sketchy to me. I hope that there is a fire extinguisher near by in case of a backfire!

"Haynes comebacks" Lol! I never heard that one before.

I really hope that things work out well for you, it sounds like an awesome place to be at!
