Re: What have I done wrong

Float height adjusted the measurement method, but if the float height were the issue then regardless if the chokes on or off it would run out of fuel wouldn't it ? All other settings were same as before i stripped them.
The key here is it runs with full choke, but not at all with no choke.

Re: Carb Stripped Thread

Yes! I have helicoiled quite a few. I prefer to do that rather than tapping m5 as you have to open out the hole in the bowl or cap and associated gaskets for clearance. All done and easy as, key thing is doing the drilling in a press to keep everything aligned and true. Cheers for the prompt Zed :up

Carb Stripped Thread

Has anyone successfully helicoiled the threads for the caps / bowls ? I have one bowl screw gone and a few on the caps, may as well sort them while fully disassembled

Re: Road Trip

Cheers for the replies. That's an excellent tip Fred about the baby wipes, will be packing them next trip. There are a few other roads to travel here but to go into more hilly territory and more windier roads its a 3 or 4 day trip to go over to the east coast. Unlike you lucky bigger who can go inte...

( not rubbing it in honest..) image.jpeg There was a 20km gravel road detour which made things interesting but fun. image.jpeg image.jpeg After th...

But my biggest dilemma is that the front Pirelli has gone
off big time.
