Put a 56 tooth on my ktm replica top speed is only 75km/hr now but the acceleration from 40km/hr onwards is wicked any little bumps in the rd and the front wheel lifts for a bit just in normal riding stance very happy with the shorter gearing

I'm trying my hand and cutting carb gasket today. Got a huge sheet of Felpro for a few bucks, so will have plenty for future happytime gaskets, probably easier to cut too.

The Fel-Pro Kerro-Pak gasket material was ok. It looks durable, but it is hard to cut with razors. It is a paper like substance, not like the hard rubbery type gaskets on many small engines, but better than the cheap happytime corks.

The Tanaka33 fired right up with my boost bottle, idled a little high, but maybe because of the cold weather. When I pinched the hose, it settled down. It was just high enough to grab the clutch some, but it was SMOOOOOTH, and it hauled the bike hard from 5mph to 25mph, didn't get to do over that but it felt like it had some more. It usually does about 28 with this roller, maybe 30 with no wind, with gusto at 20-25mph. Throttle response was instant, rolling it on and letting off.

Put on new front tire and tube. Maybe I'll do the rear tomorrow.
Ordered a new CG magneto form BGF.

Bought a 4 stroke friction drive kit. (I'm getting frustrated with the CG 2 stroke, and I need something somewhat reliable.)

Eventually, I'll be able to ride!

Went to the ACE hardware store and special ordered the chain I need.
How can I make 5 days get here faster?

Also fiddled around with a soon to be taillight and contemplated a different sort of battery holder.

If you meant mine, I don't think so but I will double check with a squirt bottle tomorrow before taking it on a ride.

Did you mean the guy with "carb that runs worse after cleaning"?
Could be a lot of things, even the jet unscrewing, probably not seated on the intake the same way. Don't forget the junction washer (rubber o-ring). It helped mine so much.
