Chipmunks make a similar mess of things.
Can you still buy Dcon? I looked the other day and couldn't find it.
They got a name for all the mice in the world, I want a name when they lose, call in the dcon blue...
I'm reluctant to use D-con or other poisons since I read an article (with necropsy photos) about hawks and owls that had caught and eaten mice that were dying from D-con.
The switch I bought is originally for various KTM EXCs (300, 450... etc). My switch is a std switch for TE310/250 (made by Domino). I doubt EXC have any relays, so it should work, but I don't know exactly :)
Yeep, the gauge of the wire (metal part) is 1.5 and 0.5 respectively. I cut both and measured. Now I think it should work with EXC, I just got to try.
Have had the air filter box experience on a truck and a car. Also had the fuel injector wires chewed almost thru on the same car. The most heart breaking was the head liner in my ‘68 Firebird. Was sitting in the shop, and the lil bastards got in the car, on the dash, up the side window bar, on top of the passenger visor, chewed hole in ORIGINAL ‘68 good condition headliner. To top it off, it made its bed from the rear seat’s base lining, and was storing acorns in the air duct system. Hate them lil fuckers.
Yeah, saw it first hand with a snake that ate a decon’d mouse in my shop. Ate the snakes guts out and when I picked up the snake by its tail, it “drained out” yummy fluid on the shop floor thru its mouth. Friggin floor is still stained there.
That’s a lot of adjustments. I had 2008 300 and 2011 300 and 2012 250. I cant remember needles and jets because my dealer jetted them. I never fouled a plug and only made adjustments to the air screw as the temperature changed. Stayed between 1.5 and 2 turns out. When it idles good and not too high it’s right
Now there's some auditory therapy!
Wire gauge a number, which as larger is a thinner wire. Here is a table which should be of use:
Gauge corresponding to 0.5mm is 24. Personally, i would not use anything less than 18ga for a headlight load - preceded by a max 10A fuse. 16ga would be preferable. It's possible the bike is getting away with a higher gauge, i haven't cut open the wires to see. I'd want a 2 or 3 amp fuse on a 24ga wire. That's probably barely adequate for an LED headlight.
A meaningful change in fuel oil ratio might foul a plug? From 60/1 to 40/1?
How about changing brand?
Are chainsaws and weedeaters fouling plugs left and right? Mine aren't.
Brand shouldn't matter as much as type. Here's a rough idea:
Last week I was messing around down cellar and decided to take bike for quick spin and grab a pair of boots sitting down there I hardly ever wear and I pull bottie out and when I turn it upside down out pours half a box of decon, guess they were saving for a rainy day. Oh I HATE fucking mice pain in the ass!
Walmart changed from the box of pellets to blocks about an inch and change square, with a hole down the center. Believe it or not they were carrying those things off somewhere. So I made "stations" by putting a drywall screw through a plastic lid at the center and dropping the block on that. Now it's a lot easier to monitor how much they eat, and when it's time to put a new block on. Plus they don't go dragging the D-con all over who knows where.
They come with these protective housings that are great for protecting pets, the only problem is the mice seem to not eat as well from them. They Chow Down on the open blocks that are secured by the screws. But they have to be carefully located out of the reach of pets when left open like that.
On and offs final solution...
The pilot took my different brand gas/oil and put in his nearly empty tank. My mix was 50/1 to his 60. Plug immediately fouled. Coincidence??
Of course! Is yours fouling? I doubt his was insulted...
Air to combustible. It needs a good hot burn to combust everything. Short rides that don't warm up the engine can contribute to deposits building up as can low rpm operation lacking high airflow which helps to burn and expel. A lack of coolant thermostat can contribute also by extending low temperature operation. Spark plug heat range needs to match operational conditions, yet while a hot plug in a cool engine can combat plug fouling, deposits can still build up in the combustion chamber. Hot combustion and large airflow minimize combustion chamber deposit buildup.
Hope that helps.
No. It just proves that you can destruct more than one bike at a time.
