Not really, took it out during lunch and had a few issues.

First, it would mis pretty bad at WOT, but it was also running premix and the oil pump was priming so I think it was just that when it was hitting that like 15:1 it couldn't fire.

Swapped out the PreMix for regular once the pump was fully primed, now it just runs like shit.  Pulled a plug after a sprited run down the neighborhood and the plug is pretty black.  So Im going to jet it down some and see where that takes me.  Need to order jets, went to jetsrus but they dont carry the air jet, and mine is pretty wonky so I woudl really like to replace it along with a smaller main and pilot.

At least this is so much easier to tune that the KZ, that bike is going to be the death of me.  four fucking carbs, what was I thinking

Well the trip to Thakar was a failure. Thought it just needed a little tuning so I brought jets and never got it running well.

After getting home I oiled the filter (forgot) and BOOM now it runs like a fucking rocket. At this point all the lights work, the oil pump works, everything works. I need to throw some caswell in the tank for sanity sake. Things rattle and shake so lots of small touch things but it's ready to hammer now.

Yeah, we had it all the way up to 120 in KY, it ran fine but hated anything over 4K RPM, which doesn't get a 2t very far.  After oiling I went down to a 118 main. However the needle clip it all the way up, I think the needle in it could use some tuning. I don't want to drop the main any more because the plug looks good to a smidge lean where it currently sits after a chop at wot

Looks like it's running good! A 74' MT250K1 was my first "project bike" I ended up deleting all the electronics and turned it into a woods bike.

Yours is looking great!

Dang, with some newer style plastics yours looks like a much more modern bike.  I have a title so wanted to leave it street legal for resale sake.  There is a chamber like that on e-bay but its like $300 after shipping.  Do you know what it is? I would love to get more power, but dont want to spend that kind of money.

That's a Bassanni pipe. Great pipes too, and can wake these up. Oddly enough you can still buy them new from Jemco I think. Just have to call and tell them what you want
