Not to be defensive, but just to set the baseline: Joe ain't just the neighbor. Colorado enduro champ in, oh, probably the sixties. Our best local mechanic for a quarter century. And his son Pat, also a national treasure, had the same Beta until a couple months ago.

So any incongruities in this discussion are mine. I'm having one conversation with the bikes, another with Joe, and another with you-all. And I'm a carpenter, not a motorhead. Thanks for the encouragement.

You'd get along great with Joe.

Mikuni.
I understand why Joe jets the way he does. I have worked with and know plenty of great mechanics, some national champs of many forms of motorcycling. I also know what works in a Beta.
So if it was his bike, how did he fix the carb from over flowing? It was always a problem so wodering if you are starved for fuel also?
