For the idle issue I would look at the idle jet and/or fuel/air screw, making one adjustment at a time.
To get the idle jet correct might take some trial and error.
Fuel air screw can be made by setting the idle high, so it's not running on the idle circuit and adjust the screw until you reach a max in the idle speed. I've had good luck with that.
For the throttle bog I would look at the needle position, again making one adjustment at a time.

I've never owned an RFS bike so I could be talking out of my ass.

Oh yeah, I meant to call you. You see what happened was, well, the bank put
my $100K in the wrong account. They were very sorry about the mix up and
say it should be fine now. Would you mind running it through again?

Better yet. I'll write you a new check for $5,000 over what you are asking.
You give me $4K back and that way I have Christmas money while you
can deposit the check on the 1st and make an extra $1K!

Merry Christmas!




Speaking of scams. I just found out today someone created a fraudulent web site
on the family candy buisiness. People are now calling wondering where their online
orders are? Never had a website. I found it and it looks very legit. Called the FBI
because I assume they said they would ship over state lines. Interesting to see
what will happen.

For inquiring minds,

But my charge for 50 boxes of toffee cleared three days ago.....I was going to treat all the Utards with a 5 lb box and then send the rest to Colorado......figured I could trade for some of that legal rope they have......it only totaled at $4125.00......when do I get my refund check?






DO NOT COMPLETE THE ORDER IF YOU CLICK ON THE LINK..........

Looks like a great web site to me.......

A JD kit should get you pretty close unless the pilot is plugged or the oring on the fuel screw is broken.

Colder air would make it run leaner.

You can also be lean at one throttle position and rich at another.

Once its warm does it still stall when you hit the throttle?

I can get to idle for a minute, then it dies. If i hit the throttle at all it dies.

I keep my garage at about 50 degrees. It was certainly running fine in much colder temps when we did that last tour. I lubed the chain but that didn't help either.

Well, if lubing the chain didn't fix it, you're BONED!

Just a stupid question, but you aren't leaving the choke on by any chance are you? Mine will stall at the slightest throttle once it's warm enough to run without it.

well... just sayin', you might become a "glass full" kind a guy if you change your adv signature. Not likely to "get a full (gl)ass" if your come on line says... [add a sentence here]

"hey baby, did you here the one about Rush Limbaugh and birth control?"
"Dick Cheney walks into a bar and shoots a liberal women in the face and says..."
"aslkdjflasdofij!" (that's the name of a liberal volcano from last year)
"etc"

anyway, let me know when your up for another blizzard ride, and what your jet-set is if you know it!

I would check the needle clip if it didn't slip. Sounds like your bike went from running good to not running suddenly.

Any Utard Snowmobilers

So are any of you guys snowmobilers? My bike is put away for the year but my sled is itching to get some powder days. I'm heading out this weekend to check out the snow pack in the high unintas.

But Kev, poking a stick into the eyes of "Liberals" is one of those small pleasures in life..... I don't know, I might be able to change my signature line, if I could think of something even more ironic.....

Besides, I'm very optimistic! For instance, I always use the irresistible pickup line "hey baby, I really want YOU to have MY abortion!" But wait, does that mean I'm really more of a Libertarian?!

I'll keep you in mind as soon as I see some snow in the forecast!

I'm happy to pay for gas if you'll haul me to the top of nice snowboard runs!
