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

That's really nice, Allen, helping those kids that way. It makes me feel like a selfish rat cuz I went out and fixed my own bike. haha
I haven't been riding or posting for months cuz I've been under the weather as they say since New Years and only this week felt like looking into the trouble with it. A 2 stroke Dax, it had lost power on its last ride and wouldn't pull at all.
I drained the old gas, cleaned the carb's passages and jet, checked the float, tightened the intake, checked the seals, looked for air or oil leakage (nuthin), took off the head for a look in there (nuthin) oiled the bore and put it back together. Aired up the tires and gassed it up.
It runs fine again, I reckon it had some grit in the jet or float passage, starving it for fuel. It actually started right up and idled good cold.
All's well. I do have to pick up a speedo battery, its going down fast.
Fall's almost here, the best months for motorbiking.
Buzz zzzzz zzz
