I end up rich most times. But I live near hills and you can seize a lean running bike easy down a big hill. I actually soft seized my polini down a smallish hill today. The slide in my sha runs the mid range a little lean I think so it got me. I need to grab a temp gauge for this bike I think. Thankfully it cooled enough and started back up by the time I got to the bottom of the hill. So far my experiences with garelli polini kits have been the same this way. Little soft seize down a hill, ripp it on home.

I did come across this fun chart for plugs.
