Sorrows of an RD...

The carbs got F\*\*\*ed. Blame me - sat down last day and set about cleaning them, just because there was a mild flutter in low throttle openings. I have to admit i did a very careful job - so much that i didn't even bother testriding the bike right then. Next day took the bike to office, and within no time i found that something is wrong.

To cut a long story short, rode to office and back on one cylinder. Now it's parked quietly and all covered up, till this weekend so that i can find some time to work on the carbs once more. Suspect it's the float level issue.

Moral of the story:

1. Dont touch those carbs unless it's really needed.
2. Do not touch the float level unless it's really really needed.
3. Before plugging the carbs back in, inspect the fuel level.
4. Always testride the bike after you have made any changes.

friggin thing always used to sulk while on 165 mains so never bothered to upjet. in the end, the 140s split their threads and was unusable with every one of the needle jets that i had, so had to resort to 165s. and its downright wierd, its running fine now, except for a certian "abnormality" in low throttle openings. topend is \*superb\*, easily managed a lazy 140 in the inner ring road out here, and with lots more to go
