Thanks for the reply. Mine is getting a tad harder to start somedays, and I often wonder if its in need of a carb sync.I get pretty good economy though, 43 mpg average so far. Over the winter I plan to remove the canister shit, (install tkc 80s, dr beans fuel pump mod, new clutch slave, check valves and finish my skid plate) and I was thinking maybe I should clean and sync the carbs up as well. Couldnt hurt I guess!


Where are you guys getting your 525 15 tooth sprocket? I wanna try one!
