  • Jimbonaut: Went to go look at an '82 Honda Cub yesterday (big fail), the guy also had a CBX with a bunch of extra parts including a rack of carbs and a complete head for sale.  I think this stuff is pretty rare - anyone interested in it?  I can get in touch with the guy and get a price
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:11:09
  • Jimbonaut: It's a 1981
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:17:13
  • Maritime: you hate 4 carbs right, shoot yourself now instead of going for a bike with 6
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:23:17
  • Maritime: Althogh the CBX in good tune is a beast
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:24:49
  • advCo: I'd rather the Cub
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:38:25
  • advCo: Fuck 6 carbs
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:38:33
  • cbrianroll: 6 carbs....nope...I'm cleaning the goldwings again, 4s not fun..
    Jul 17, 2019, 12:47:49
  • Jimbonaut: Hate 4 carbs?  Not me, I love the things.  CBX though is def not for me, just wondering if anyone was interested

  • JustinLonghorn: Makes me want to mess with the Ascot in the corner of my shop.
    Jul 17, 2019, 13:06:50
  • irk miller: We can mess with our Ascots together and have cuddle time.
    Jul 17, 2019, 13:16:01
  • JustinLonghorn: Sounds like a good time to me!
    Jul 17, 2019, 14:26:04
  • Sonreir: Guy selling an Ascot near me, but he wants two grand.
    Jul 17, 2019, 15:14:07
  • JustinLonghorn: That's a lot of monies.
    Jul 17, 2019, 15:15:56
  • cbrianroll: what's your guys thought on a 75 ish Yamaha 650 special? there's one around for a few hundred..
    Today at 00:57:43
  • JustinLonghorn: could be a fun bike. $300 is close to why not monies.
    Today at 09:16:32
  • advCo: Yep
    Today at 09:16:53
  • JustinLonghorn: Oh, and good morning muchachos
    Today at 09:17:57
  • Maritime: Morning folks. Ol girl has a low off idle stumble. not sure why, hoping the last gas stop from quebec ride was bad gas
    Today at 09:19:07
  • Maritime: SHe ran flawless all 3500 km of the ride, at 90-100 mph for hours
    Today at 09:19:45
  • advCo: Weird. I hate when crap like that happens
    Today at 09:21:30
  • Maritime: Yeah, I wonder if my dyna moved a bit? its like the points are off, but glogged jets can do it too
    Today at 09:25:17
  • Maritime: 0-1/4 throttle is crappy and it stalled when I slowed down to pull into parking lot after a steady 70 mph run to work. It fired right back up but I had to open the throttle a lot to get it to rev right etc.
    Today at 09:27:01
  • Maritime: I ran regular gas all trip but knowing I might let the bike sit a bit I filled with Supreme(no ethanol in CAD) so 3/4 of the tank would be supreme and 1/4 regular. will need to fill up on way home and will do another tank of supreme and put some seafoam in and see what happens.
    Today at 09:50:05
  • advCo: Yeah sounds like a clogged pilot maybe
    Today at 10:12:41
  • Maritime: Hoping that's it. I am thinking fuel because it was not reving good above 3K until more than 1/4 throttle when I rolled on it and if ignition it would have been at full advance so I think crap fuel and slightly clogged slow jets are the culprit
    Today at 10:20:37
  • JustinLonghorn:
    Today at 12:14:35
  • Jimbonaut: I wonder if that's the same problem I'm having with my KLR.  It's pretty boggy at low revs but better at high.  It's stalling when I come to a stop too
    Today at 12:31:20
  • Jimbonaut: Thanks for the insight!
    Today at 12:31:56
  • advCo: Jim could be your jetting as well
    Today at 12:33:51
  • Jimbonaut: I could well be.  I know it's running really rich (exhaust kinda stinks and the plug is always carbon fouled) but at WOT I get a nice clean plug.  It's more at low rpm that the engine bogs and stalls when I come to a stop (or even slow down)
    Today at 12:50:56
  • Jimbonaut: I think maybe get a smaller sized pilot jet?  It's all a bit weird though as the jets are stock but I have a big bore, less restrictive exhaust and airbox.  If anything I'd've thought I'd need bigger jets if anything.  Smaller seems counter intuitive
    Today at 12:52:38
  • advCo: Yeah I'm not up on jetting do I don't really know. But if it smells rich its probably rich somewhere along the line
    Today at 13:52:33
  • Maritime: They say that sometimes a big bore needs a down jet on the slow as it pulls harder and if the jets to big it gets too much fuel
    Today at 14:01:56
  • Jimbonaut: That would make sense Mike
    Today at 14:09:56
  • Jimbonaut: The smallest pilot jet that Kawasaki make is a 40, but HD use the same carb on a lot of their bikes too and I they make smaller sizes
    Today at 14:10:51
  • Jimbonaut: Maybe a 38?
    Today at 14:11:14
  • advCo: Try Jetsrus
    Today at 14:38:28
  • Maritime: Jets R us is good. I found rare jets there reasonable for the virago. May need to ship to Houlton though I don't think they ship to Canuckistan. Good thing you know a guy LOL
