Props to Seat Concepts

I purchased a firm seat concept for my dr and it did not work for me. I advertised it in the flea market and the good people at seat concepts said send them the seat and they will swap the firm for the soft. I sent the seat and they gave me new foam and cover and installed it and shipped it back to me on their dime. I must say I have high expectations when I give people my money for something and most of the time I am disappointed but this goes beyond anything I would have ever expected and if you deal with seat concepts you will be a happy customer. A tip of the hat to seat concepts.

At high altitude lean it out even more for proper idle and better starting.
that is traditionally true with CV carbs but i have found (as many others) that tuning it that way produces an off-idle bog. i've turned my screw back to 1 turn out and the bog is gone...this setting does not produce the best idle but the engine runs better because no bog...

The only pipes I have on my bikes are exhaust...and no taps on them. While I do have "hoses" for gas...maybe that is why I use a petcock!

Just messing with you guys. After I wrote it I kind of figured it out. Thanks though.

Quite common in Oz and kiwi land and even the UK to refer to the "petcock" as the "tap" matter of fact I had never heard someone call it the "petcock" until I came on here.

Fcr

I went with the FCR because I've used them before on my Bergs and played with them on other's Yams. I used MXRobs specs as a starting point and have leaned it off a bit. Maybe our fuel is different, and I'm at 800 m. Really wakes up and smoothes out the power delivery, and no impact on consumption for me. MXRob can supply a bellmouth adaptor too if you email him. Details in the link in my sig.

For mostly cruising though its probably not worth the expense over a properly setup BST40. As the terrain gets more technical, the benefits are appreciated more and more, like suspension, but just putt around and there is not much point.

I was thinking petcock was used more when Off - On and Reserve became standard.
Most fuel taps on early bikes were simple On/Off affairs.
Be it a small lever,a screwed thumb wheel with a needle and seat or even a simple pull out jobbie like this below.

We're close on reserve really ... 30 kms. is about 20 miles. I'm getting
10 to 15 miles.

I think it looks more like a tap than a pet cock.
