what is it you dont understand about the air screw adjustment out is richer

stock setting is 1.5 turns

Ok that's what I thought. If I turn it all the way in (bottomed out) the bike still idles normal. So down a size or 2 on the pilot?

Time to get this thing ready for Barber, wrap it up and ride it. Re routed the exhaust for the fourth or fifth time. Fitted a Supertrapp so I had to change the pipe a bit. Needs some paint but I'm happy with it.



Got this slick billet gas cap with a recessed vent tube.

Came from xb33bsa. He may be banned from here but he's still got a ton of great vintage MX parts lol. Need to grab some vacuum line to run up under the bars.

I actually got it for this Vesco Desert tank I traded Mr. E for at mid-o, which will go on later.

Not yet. Decided to hold off on that for the moment and try and get her running right with the stock carb. I'll be at barber, hopefully I'll be able to grab a cheap one at the swap meet.
