all i was saying that what was noticable was that one of the bowls was full of junk and the other was not.

so yes i did read "above" and i assumed that "cleaning the carbs" meant "cleaning the carbs", ha.

Atta boy! Good job!

still trying to figure out how all that jelly-ish stuff accumulated in the one carb.
Battery Tender to top up between rides, on sale for $25 many times. ENJOY!!!
