  • JustinLonghorn: Makes me want to mess with the Ascot in the corner of my shop.

  • 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..
    Jul 18, 2019, 00:57:43
  • JustinLonghorn: could be a fun bike. $300 is close to why not monies.
    Jul 18, 2019, 09:16:32
  • advCo: Yep
    Jul 18, 2019, 09:16:53
  • JustinLonghorn: Oh, and good morning muchachos
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 09:19:07
  • Maritime: SHe ran flawless all 3500 km of the ride, at 90-100 mph for hours
    Jul 18, 2019, 09:19:45
  • advCo: Weird. I hate when crap like that happens
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 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.
    Jul 18, 2019, 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.
    Jul 18, 2019, 09:50:05
  • advCo: Yeah sounds like a clogged pilot maybe
    Jul 18, 2019, 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

  • JustinLonghorn:
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 12:31:20
  • Jimbonaut: Thanks for the insight!
    Jul 18, 2019, 12:31:56
  • advCo: Jim could be your jetting as well
    Jul 18, 2019, 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)
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 14:01:56
  • Jimbonaut: That would make sense Mike
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 14:10:51
  • Jimbonaut: Maybe a 38?
    Jul 18, 2019, 14:11:14
  • advCo: Try Jetsrus
    Jul 18, 2019, 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
    Jul 18, 2019, 15:53:01
  • advCo: Ahhh, more welding on the bus today. I feel like I'm getting nowhere this week
    Jul 18, 2019, 16:59:41
  • JustinLonghorn: Spot, move, repeat.
    Jul 18, 2019, 17:43:50

    Jul 18, 2019, 17:45:17
  • Maritime: So bike is rich?? Seafoamed t
    Jul 18, 2019, 18:28:18
  • Maritime: Then road home 25 min did the ton, road slow etc. Stalled going up deiveway. Fired it up and had to rev the shit out of it to get it ip the hill. Stopped and ii dled and as I reved it stuttered and you could smell fuel. No smoke. Not sjre wtf
    Jul 18, 2019, 18:30:00
  • Jimbonaut: ppp
    Jul 18, 2019, 23:01:46
  • Jimbonaut: I'll take you up on that Mike - the jets are cheap as chips but shipping to MTL is a joke
    Jul 18, 2019, 23:02:22
  • Jimbonaut: ordered =)

  • advCo: That may be my favorite rat rod of all time
    Today at 09:27:22
  • Maritime: that thing is cool
    Today at 09:30:15
  • advCo: Buy my stuff: [link]
    Today at 09:49:24
  • irk miller: Fuck yeah that thing is cool.  I have those same glass packs on mine.
    Today at 11:05:23
  • advCo: Whats going on with yours Irk?
    Today at 11:10:31
  • Maritime: Well I think I just figured out the GL issue. There are O-RIngs in the plenum area for fuel that shit the bed from ethenol and age and looks like mine have, I am running rich, smell fuel and have some on the intake floor under the air cleaner and my fuel mileage dropped so I will be pulling carbs and replacing rings and seals.
    Today at 12:27:48
  • advCo: Hopefully that takes care of it eh
    Today at 12:31:05
  • advCo: I had to go unclog our condensate line for the AC at 11:30 last night, it got up to 81 in the house before I realized. Sucked about 5 gallons of water out of the drip pan and drain line but A/C is working again
    Today at 12:31:56
  • Maritime: At least you found it. We've had to run AC more this month than last 5 years combined
    Today at 12:34:55
  • Maritime: looks like I should bite the bullet and do a full on carb rebuild on the GL I've never done it, it's got almost 180K miles on it, this winter I will buy the Randakk's kit and do it
    Today at 12:47:33
  • cbrianroll: I've used randalls kit...its good...the first time I cleaned my plenum I'm not sure what the po did but they were clogged... completely...
