Last night I upped the pilot jets from 45 to 50 and although the flat spot was the same I now have some colour in the plugs which was a concern ( I have some 48's too but will keep these 50's in for now)
I will now weaken the needles as I can't go the other way , anyway as it's on richest setting
Don't like to weaken the needles and will try clip #4, middle clip and clip #2 but no more to see if I can get a better transition
I have some needle shims too , to go half a clip to try
Put the N68 needles on middle clip and much better, so engine is asking for weaker there I had put 50 pilots in and plugs looked a good colour but with needles weaker the plugs look weaker ffs So can't do anything with needles, so do I go richer on the pilots
Another great read. Bike looks awesome dude. Hope you get her going as good as she looks soon. You must have the patience of a saint with all the issues you had along the way!
When I was young I swapped a scabby mt5 for a non running cb125j. Spent ages trying to get the thing running. One evening me and my mate tried bump starting it. It felt like we must have done 5 miles and I was getting angrier and angrier until I finally hit savage. Push her home, removed seat and tank, and beat the 5hit out of the bike with a sledge hammer!!! I think I invented the banana frame.
I have calmed down in my old age, but I think that's mostly down to the fact the sledgehammer seems so much heavier!😁😁😁
Bugger. I know it's not been an easy task getting it set up, but you know it's going to be worth the hassle when it is sorted.....these set backs will just make it more satisfactory when it's finally running sweet.
