So now I've messed with my fuel screw
Posted July 02, 2003 - 05:08 AM
Until now I had never had to use the hot-start to get it going after a stall/crash and now I do - would this mean that I'm closer to the mark? Was I a little lean before?
The bad news is that now even a small quick blip of the throttle will kill the engine with it in neutral. It's not affecting my riding, but maybe I'm still not that agressive from a standstill. I'll be able to experiment properly when the screw comes, but given these 2 symptoms (now needing the hot-start to start hot, but dying on a blip) I can't really decide if I've improved anything ...any opinion would help me begin to understand carburetors - I don't want to be scared to touch these things.

Well now I count my blessings and install the Zipty - It was raining this weekend, and I set it according to oRGie's recommendation - all I can say is wow! It's not a massive burst of power or anything, but it just feels right. It wants to do things that would have been a bit of work before, but now they just happens effortlessly.
Finally, it ends up that my magic number is 2-1/2 turns out, so if I understand correctly I should be looking at a bigger PJ, right?
I'm also 98% sure I'm going to try JD's Jetting Kit before the end of the season, am I right that it is strictly needles and MJs (and a heap of knowlege and wisdom)?. Will I be duplicating anything in the JD by buying a PJ or two before I buy the kit? Thanks!

I'm continually confused as to why anybody cares how the bike runs in neutral.
I'll never understand it.

I thought I'd include every difference I observed.
I'm just being a smartass.
That was a very descriptive and informative post, I did not mean for my response to be critical in particular.

Hick, I have had the pleasure of reading several of your recent posts. I just have to compliment you.
You, by far, are the most politically correct guy on here! I get a kick out of your well thought out/written posts.
I believe you and know that you did not mean to be critical. Also, can attest to your skills (I have them too) of being a smartass. Rockon Hick

Take that back before I flame you out of existence.
