Default Still runs great

after not being used for over 5 months I took it out and started right up even on the old fuel

Runs strong

last time I rode it, over 5 months ago an engine stud broke causing the intake to break off and bike stopped running
I had a piece of velcro strap I used to hold the carb on good enough to ride to a friends house, barely made it

Bought upgraded studs ( supposed to be stronger) and metal intake tube
hopefully this wont happen again
but to be fair I had probably 7 or more gallons of fuel through the bike before anything broke. I always checked the bolts, well near the end. They were always tight so I had stopped. Just broke from vibrations I guess. If you see in the video look in my mirror this bike runs very smooth
No vibrations. I remember right before the stud broke, or maybe it was broke I had bad vibrations but since I rarely ride it I couldnt remember if that was normal. That was my sign something was wrong. But I did make it over 7 miles like that until the intake broke off.

but its been fixed for a long time now just have not rode it

Congratulations and welcome back to riding.
They are fun, aren't they. They're hard to stay away from once bitten by the bug.

Have fun and ride safe and thanks for sharing the vid with us.
