Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

So I gave the jet solder and drill trick a go....
First thing to go wrong was the float bowl gasket disintegrated as soon as I took the bowl off. Made a replacement from dense cardboard with oil rubbed into it to get me out of trouble (bike is my primary transport).
Next I wisely soldered the pin side of the jet, so spent sone time clearing that out as I'm sure the pin wants a clean environment to do its thing. Drilling the jet was no probs.
Now I have a long ride required today so better take a second plug and keep an eye on lean-out symptoms.
Good fun to tinker of course.
