Ok so I got my new polini kit installed on my garelli. I'm running the stock 14.12 with the plugs in the filter pulled out and runnning a 68 jet right now. I am also just running an open header because my stock muffler is too clogged.
1st problem - The compression is so high I can hardly get the clutch to engage enough to start it. I'm guessing this is because someone shaved the head way down. I am running a head gasket though so I thought that would take care of it but I guess not. Could the fluid in the tranny just be low and that causing problems with the clutch?
2nd problem - This is the biggest ordeal. Air/Fuel tuning. Am I at a good starting point? (refer to above setup) Is there a book somewhere on tuning these carbs that has thing to look for in how its running in correspondance to what to change? Or do I have to just keep buying new plugs and doing chops till I get it right? Also how does exhaust change the mix? I have an open header right now.
Besides that though I had it running on the stand just to make sure it fired and ran good. It sounds fuckin pissed !!!!! It was like it wanted to just take off and drive right through my house!!! It's loud as fuck with open exhaust!! Please help me so I don't blow this thing up. Thanks
