I have a BP about 2 blocks away that has one of those pumps. It is all I ran in the monster. I keep a 2 ½ gal can with seafoam in it for a stabilizer and top up at home.
 
Very cool. I'm going to go back to fill the can another day. I've read mixed reviews on running 91 in the old singles, some say it's harder to for our bikes to get the 91 to combust properly. I think I'd like to try this non ethanol 91 to see how it acts.
 
Ha.....we have a gas station with a big sign saying it has ethanol free gas, but when you pull up to the pump it has a sign on it say they are out.................................


I think it's a ploy just to get you to their pumps.

Cause it's been 2 months and those same signs are still there.
 
That sucks. I found this website last night.

The gas was $.30 more per gallon than the 93 octane ethanol up the road. Worth the price for my bikes. There is another one about 6 Miles from me that was 10 cents cheaper last week, but it shared a hose with the other grades.

And they are on that list too.
Hit the details button at the end of their name and take them off the list until they carry the ethanol free gas again.
 
cool, I need to do that.......

On a happier note, I actually got this little cb100 to fire and run. Holy crap.....unbelievable.

First time in 15 to 20 years this thing has ran.

Done...........!!!!!!

Sh1t, daughter's car crapped out, so CB100 gets moved to the back burner..........

Dayyyyyyum.....life takes priority once again.
 
Carbs and I don't get along. I'm now at a 125 MAIN JET. Need to pop the needle up a click and try again tomorrow. Dude at the Honda shop was cool and let me trade three jets in for bigger ones. Wot is still popping, but 125 was the biggest jet I bought today, so I'm going to work the needle and see if I can get a ride in tomorrow.

I always thought carbs and me got along........but...!!!!!

I pulled the jet from a set of Yamaha 350 carbs.......150. Wonder if they will fit or be worth it to try.

Well, got the daughter's car fix.....back on track.

Ordered chain, sprockets, and kicker lever and shaft. Got the lever and shaft from a member.
But, I'm trying to play with what I have to kick it to try to get it running right.

Then......all these years messing with motorcycles, this little sucker bite me......burnt my lower leg on the pipe...........sh1t that hurts.
 
Don't know about 150 jet, if you are running the air box you might be all good with the current set up. Everything I read or watched said one step up for pod filter 2 steps for pod and exhaust. If the stock carb calls for, 100,110,or 115 main jet, I feel like 125 is 4 steps above that. If I can't figure it out by midweek, I'll take it to the local guy to see his thoughts.
 
Well, I tried to connect the rubber snorkel thingie to the airbox and carb.........it wouldn't fit.

I might boil it in water, and see what happens.

Still need a foam filter too.

Did you open that new carb, what is the size jet in it?
 
Unsure, I think 110, could be 115. The Honda shop couldn't check for me today. He checked the book and all it said was the three options I mentioned earlier. I emailed the seller to see if they know. I'm waiting for a response, it's not labeled and I don't have a drill bit small enough to check it against other jets.
 
Ill pull jet out of mine in the morning and check it.

The air "snorkel" was pretty snug on mine. I just smeared a thin amount of grease around the inside and its easier to fit now.

Yea, I tried grease....actually vasoline.....but no go.

I'm gonna try boiling in water with some simple green mixed in....

I did that with the carb boots for the 750, didn't soften them up as much as it would have if I had used that wintergreen stuff, but good enough to work.

We'll see what it does to this thing.

I contacted wincycle. The main jet that came on our carbs is a 110.


Cool, thanks for that info..........I pulled mine and there is no markings whatsoever.

But, 110 is good I guess. I'm running stock exhaust and stock air box, as soon as I get a foam piece to put in it.
