BK Mod done (no squirt!)
Posted February 21, 2002 - 01:36 PM
was a snap thanks to posts from fellow TT'ers).
So now I'm ready for the fun part (adjusting
duration/timing of the fuel "squirts"); I
filled my tank with gas, connected the fuel
line, switched the petcock to "on" and waited a few minutes for the bowl to fill, then while
holding the carb upright and to the side of the bike, I manually turned the throttle cable wheel over and over waiting for the gas... dry as a bone.
Am I missing a simple step here?

If still no success, you might have to disassemble and clean the accelerator pump assembly, and maybe even the entire carb.

I thought I had checked for clearance of the
newly installed adjustment screw and the accel
pump arm, but I re-checked after reading your
post and it was barely clear and still impeding
I backed the screw off more and now I'm squirting
gas all over the garage at 1:15 AM!!!
Thanks alot for your reply, I really appreciate

Then take a screwdriver with you when you take it out for the first test ride, because you'll likely have to do some more fine adjusting on the screws. I had to make about 10 to 15 small adjustments between the two screws before I found the "sweet spot"! And man is it sweet!!!
