for the record. leg won, and i need to get one of those handlebar mounted cameras.
is it too cliché to post a europe video?
Andrew, you ever get your money back from Corey?
i'll be riding whatever runs
New York State summers are the best!
i got ID'd trying to see a rated R movie and i'm in my 30s
what's your gearing again? if it's 13x45 that's definitely gonna limit the top speed like orange said.
just ordered the trail tech temp gauge... can't wait to test it out...
great info roffman. i've finally tracked down a 51 slide. excited to test it out.
wow, that seems like a rad tool. where does the 415 degrees temp come from?
what's the math for gearing and speed to determine rpms? i'm running 16x45 stock bushing with kit...
sounds like the 51 slide on this setup is the way to go from what i've found out... i haven't tried it yet because I don't have a 51 slide but it seems promising.
ecsuspect, did your friend have a #24 or #51 throttle slide?
i'm wondering if it requires a different atomizer to get it just right... i'm not sure if I have a 2.22 or 2.17... do the 14mm bings have different slides and needles? I've got so many bings lying around I could have pulled needles and slides from 12 or 15 bings for all I know. why do i feel like it's preferable to not run your bing with the needle on the top or bottom most not
running a 70cc kstar w/ 14mm bing... the other usual stuff... was running 78 jet at 32:1 for awhile, needle clip 2nd notch from top... now i've been at 76 jet at 40:1 needle clip 2nd from notch... overall the thing runs fine but no matter what jet or how much I lean out the mix (within reason) the thing wants to get all rich and stally on idle and I've gotta keep feathering it to keep it
yea, 72-78 should be good bing jets for a 14mm bing. curious what mix ratio everyone is running tho?
right... andy, i'm using the 2.17 atomizer. also... what mix are you running?
mid 40s... 16x45 gearing, 14 bing with 76 jet needle 1st down from the top, homeot p4, hi-flow bing airfilter, hi comp head, no porting, neglected to even smooth out the ports... lots of hills in my neck of the woods and this thing can shred up hills, good acceleration. Rode it all summer long last season no problems. Hopefully it's good to me again this season. Probably gonna purchase anothe
once the engine heats up with the 78, i need to keep the idle screw, screwed basically all the way in to keep a decent idle, it's super rich. i can't really find an airleak anywhere... would this indicate thata i either need to downjet to a 76, put the needle clip in the top most notch (it's in second from top now), or get a new needle jet (currently 2.17A I think). The 76 ran fine
so what's the point of running 32:1 over 50:1?
definitely upjet man... remember i'm on the 14 bing and can almost make the case to go to an 80... and that's 32:1 mix. If yer gonna stick with that jet you should add more oil to the mix.
hey, i've got basically the same set-up except i'm running a 14 bing with a 78 jet... needle 3rd notch from top 32:1 mix... what mix you running? If it's the same I'd imagine you'd need to run at least an 80 jet.
i upjetted to a 78, pretty uneventful, plug a bit darker brown than before. lowend a bit richer, maybe lost some speed. not really sure where the soft seize originated from... it's gotta either be either an airleak forming from that stripped stud after the engine gets hot (compression is over 150psi - sprayed carb cleaner looking for a leak and couldn't find anything) or the rust sedimen
ok, so far i raised the needle to the second notch from the bottom... seems to run fine, a bit richer on the lowend but i was able to screw in the idle screw a bit to keep it from puttering out. one thing i noticed is that i think one of the engine stud holes might be stripped because it keeps spinning when i try to torque it down. i replaced it with a new stud and it does the same thing. this so
ok, i can't find an air leak, there is a little bit of oil dripping from around the exhaust flange but that's normal right? i tightened those bolts a bit more and torqued down the cylinder head. fuel flows from the petcock fine, in the float bowl there is a tiny bit of rust sediment but it's very dissolved, it's not like visible rust particles but more of a small orange settled
