Interesting! Here’s what I’m running:

70cc Treats kit

Hi comp head

14mm bing; 72 jet, 2.20 atomizer, 24 slide

Metal mesh air filter

Tecno circuit pipe

Just checked (like literally just right now) for leaks and didn’t find any. My bike dies after a minute or two of riding which I suspect is fuel starvation because I had to set my float pretty low in order for it to not leak. The paler part of the insulator faces downwards towards the exhaust pipe. Also I’m having some issues with some buildup on the piston crown and cylinder head. I’m using Lucas Semi-Synthetic at 50:1. I had some point skipping so I replaced & correctly oiled the felt pad as well as sanded down slight pitting on the cam lobe. Last time I checked timing it was 15* BTDC. Re-checking for correct timing/lack of skipping is next on my list because it’s just too difficult to do with a bike that just dies and no extra hands. Any other ideas?
