  2. Mikuni's - right hand carb choke placement

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    How do. It's been a while . . . I've finally fitted some Mikunis to the 450 that I've had sitting in a box for about four years. Fitting them was pretty straightforward - can't remember exactly where I got them from, but they came with intake manifold adapters. They needs dialing in - the...
  3. Mikuni VM32 throttle (idle) stop screw adjustment

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    After a whole lot of tail chasing, finally got my carbs dialled in for the bike. One would think you would leave good enough alone, right? Nope. She was idling a little low, so I decided to turn it up a bit by adjusting the throttle stop screws. End result was a 'spitting' carb (best way to...

    DH8A spark plugs show white insulator with some tiny brown specks - specks reportedly indicate detonation so thinking lean mix... However... insulator also shows a smoke ring at the base so main jet and plug heat range seem compatible. Also it gets a higher top speed with a leaner main jet...
  7. Air leak sound? [video]

    Fuel Supply and Carburation
    In the space of a week, my bike went from the best it's ever ran to not running at all on the right cylinder without choke. The only way I'm verifying this is that the right side header is only warm, not scald your skin clean off hot. If anybody has a better way to verify if a cylinder is...
