I'll be verifying jetting when I clean & rebuild the carb. Only benefit of this happening is that the engine should be good for quite some time after this & I get to give the bike a really good cleaning & refreshing. It'll also give me a chance to replace some of the crapped out hardware on the thing. I plan to make the hardware choice more consistent than OEM too. Why GasGas chose to use about 50 different styles of fasteners on this thing boggles me.
