Quick update on The Motorcycle

I put in some gas and seafoam and it was much happier - though not quite perfect.
A quick look in the service manual says it's idle should be around 1300 +- 100 RPM. It was around 800. A quick adjustment there and it is much *much* happier. It still could use a tuneup, but that'll be for a weekend coming later.

Great to hear!

Hopefully the more you ride, the better it will run.

Try changing the plugs. Check the air filter. Wouldn't hurt to replace it if it's dirty.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher

That's what I'm thinking. I'd like to at least get done with this tank of gas. Tomorrow will be an enjoyable morning.

go through a tank of name-brand gas with the Seafoam and then reassess. I find that when my bike sits it requires SeaFoam to get back on the road.

I put my bike back on the road after nearly three years and I still had some gas in the tank from before being laid up. I threw a little SeaFoam in there, let it into the bowls, came back a few days later and the bike started, much to my amazement. SeaFoam can make a person lazy.



Hurts like a bastid...

Be careful out there, 'chip.



It is what it is.
