you got that right
Lets assume that you have 24 fasteners between you and the bottom of your spark plugs. Now lets assume that you artfully put all 24 fasteners into the correct locations and then test fire your bike. But now lets assume the bike idles rough, really rough.
Then lets assume your A1 Prime troubleshooters first response is take is back down. Assume your primal desire to squish his head (from Saturday Night Live) is suppressed. Assume you re-work the same 24 fasteners, this time artfully including 2-3 test fires at key reassembly points (which go splendidly well).
Now lets assume you are back at stage 1 with the test fire
..but the bike idles rough, really rough. After a brief sigh, and some more basic trouble shooting, A1 Prime realizes the problem is the throttle cable needs to be adjusted. The complete irony is that somehow BMW actually located the throttle adjustment where a mere mortal could actual get to it (on the handle bar). Its crazy because in the last 50,000 miles Ive never needed to adjust the throttle cable (unlike the clutch cable which is at the bottom of the universe location).
Grrrrrr, 72 fastners later she purrs like a kitten.
think it's time to get on the road
I didn't realize your orange bike had KTM blood....
Believe me I wasn't I thinking that! Worse, I now shutter how long I might be on the trail if I flood this one out following you (e.g. one that rides with fishes)
No worries...just maintain the same operational mode as last time...
I'll swim, you play life guard...
