Maybe silly but it just felt right giving it a thick coat of VHT flame proof.

Thanks for those links...........

Gotta go out and try that strap thingie on my 350f to pull the carbs.

Can you elaborate more on how you did it?

All my so called running projects have really bad carb issues that stops me from riding either.

I dont recall what I hooked the ratchet strap too.  Frame or shocks.  But just ratchet the thing until it gives you room to work.

Oh no you gotta get the carbs sorted dude, and ride.

Found an hour this morning.

Less than ideal test conditions = cold engine.

Numbers Not factory fresh.  Better than disappointing, it MIGHT improve after a bit more running.
