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

Opening the gas cap had no effect, nor did holding the primer on the float down. After a short time, it fires right up again and powers up to speed smoothly, but a few minutes later the same slow down and eventual stall out will occur. Scratching my head a bit on this one.
My intuition tells me that your bowl fuel level isn't meeting the demands of your throttle usage.
Not sure but what i do know for sure is that if you are using an NT carb, the distance from your float tangs and base should be 21 mm's (tuirn your carb upside down)

Well what i AM BASICALY SAYING IS YOUR BOWL ISN'T REFILLING FAST ENOUGH TO MEET DEMAND AND YOU MUST ALTER THE float needle to allow more to flow in to meet demand.

Damn cpas lock, I ain't fixin that, Dammit!

(yes I am drinking, so I am just talking outof my a$$.)
I love my Motor Bicycle, I love Beer, I'll try not to like them both at once.
