What's the Moped Army term for...

...When I go over a bump or pothole in the road and the fuel in my carb sloshes around enough to lose performance for half a second????

This almost never happened when I was stock and I could only do ~32 max.

Now that I can crowd 45, it happens frequently -- and I suspect my stock suspension just cannot cope with the advanced speed and vibration to keep a constant fuel level in my float bowl.

A doubt a big Harley or Electra-Glide ever sees this trouble even though they could triple my speed (but also have twice my wheelbase).

So what should I call this snnoysnce?

Slap Dash?

Sloshing?

Gas Pass?

Fuel Drool?

Bump Dump?

Post Ghost?

Jar Mar?

Slow Mo?

Crack Attack?

Well Dwell?

Carb Appeal?

Spring Fever?

Shoe Glue?

Flotsam and Jetison?

Rasp Gasp?

Float Bloat?

Level Dishevel?

Freq Squeak?

Others?????

Don't have these problems.

Maybe you got a loose jet or atomizer

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

try taking the carb apart and at the very least clean it and make sure it goes back together properly. if that doesnt fix it try changing the float level/needle height?

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

I call it tiny fuel line. Sometimes I call it low float setting. Sometimes I call it too small of carb, so it has too small of float bowl. But usually I don't call it anything at all. One time I called it a poor fuel filter, but I got loud and said naughty words at it then.

I thought the PHBG carbs came with that splash guard thing above the jet to prevent this?

Instead of trying to find a clever term, why not just fix the problem?

That is the best giff of all fucking time... best real life fight kick also. That was perfect. I think I might like this Gif Gifbin guy. As long as he never speaks...

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

sounds like your float is low.

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

Sounds like the negative G forces are lifting the float.

Hold it in place with a G string.

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

Fuck, i am crying. That cat gif, holy shit.

Re: What's the Moped Army term for...

No dought its bad wiring , loose connection or a short grounding out your ignition coil it kill switch . Only reason bumps in the road would make the engine cut out . Dirtbikes jump Hellas and don't miss a beat . It's not your carb or fuel flow . Otherwise you'd described loss of power at high rpm .
