    Cleaned the carbs yesterday. lots of brown came out through passages.
    Im guessing getting it hot loosened up some gummed up gas and it clogged.
    about to re-install. hoping for good.

    this must be "break it" month... I've had numerous things come due, not the least of which is a leak in my water service feed from the street at my shut-off valve. no outward evidence of a leak anywhere outside, the higher water bill tipped me off and got me looking around... 5000 gallons of wasted water going underground, totally unnoticed. hope a good carb cleaning solves your problem - it's a weird one, for sure

    Now you KNOW why manufacturers dab a bit of paint on some threaded bits after they are tightened.....
    The paint dries and acts as a sort-of secondary lock-washer......
    I'm surprised the fuse didn't blow.......

    Never mind...."Kill" circuit......LOL

    Interesting... I hope you glued all those lego pieces together. Would hate for them to come apart while you're riding.
