Hello All,

ok....I posted a topic on here a few weeks ago thinking my bad running was a result of the reverse wire senario.
that wasnt the case.....
no matter what I did it seems to have a dead spot in the throttle so when I accelerated slow under load or standing still it would bog and want to die unless I gunned it really hard.

Last week in glamis I had to run with just a little bit of choke on and she was fine, but as I would coast down the dunes she would backfire a bit......

Does that mean I'm lean?

I came home, took off the carbs again.....
there was some brown stuff on the inside walls on the carbs, like a hardened film.......bad gas????

I cleaned it good...put it back together...didnt even crank, just started right up, it was beautiful.
I thought...that was it, I solved it, it was the brown crap..........

not so......after it warmed up.....same ol dead spot under slow throttle

I am running 150 and 155 with stock pilots, a s/o pipe and a K/N.......

THOUGHTS........HELP!!!!

lower your needle clip 1 notch, it will seat the needle higher and run yor mid range more rich. the second thing id do is go up a size on the pilots.

Dano,

I am still having the dead spot at slow acceleration......
I put in the #25 pilots and did the float bowl mod. and lowered the needle one notch.

I am ready to throw in the towel and sell this thing..........

any further thoughts?

Thanks

Mike
