Dam that ride really sucked. Thank you guys for the ideas while on the side of the road. I am tired after kicking that thing so dam much. Got it home a block or two at a time.

It would run with the choke on for a block or two then stop. I would let it sit and kick kick kick and get it going again. Then the same thing.

Is it hard to take a carb apart to clean it if you have never done it before?

You guys with the big BMW's will have to dump all the crawfish in your storage boxs to get them out there

It's pretty easy. Have a clean space to work. Lay the parts out carefully. If you have a parts diagram it will be easier. Draw pictures/take photos so you can reassemble it. On screw jets count the turns to closed before disassembly.

I have The Service Manual for the bike. It has good pictures. Just never done it before. Got space to work on now that we cleaned the garage and moved things around some what.

Did a fast search on line for the problem and most people with the problems i am having say its the pilot jet.

I could pick up the bugs and throw them in one of my side cases, but I'd have trouble strapping a big cook pot, propane tank and fryer on too.

OK, so does anyone know who owns that little track across from Stonebridge Meadows golf club off of Deadhorse MTN RD? Saw a couple CBRs on it today when I rode by there a little while ago.

baby pair o vise grips More than likely the float bowl screws are JIS japanese industrial standard, phillips will work if you break it loose with the baby vise grips first.
