First ride of the season.
Woke up the bike after this relentless Michigan winter and either I'm getting too old or it is still winter up here. I froze my ass off... She fired up after the carb filled and ran like she was never put up for the winter. It helps to treat the fuel, turn the gas off, run it till it starts to sputter then add the enrichener to suck all that gas out and after it dies drain what's left in the bowl.. I've always done that to everything I own from the tiller to the mower and even with the ethanol haven't had to mess with the carbs in the spring.
Lastly, can someone please tell me what the plastic thing with all the holes that wedges in on top of the air inlet snorkel is? Does it actually serve a purpose other than restricting airflow?
Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..
