When 3 Backups are JUST ENOUGH.

Finally got 4-5" so I can test out tracker project. Started fine but then acted like starving out. Fiddled w main then low speed needles but still does it? Ok, pull out 4/20-runs fine but little. After a couple passes pull out car to get at the 24s. They weren't in warm shop-they say no(maybe oldheimer's weak pulls). Finish w little guy. Tomorrow recheck carb-that's the one that had primer welch plug laying in bowl. May also move 2 bikes out so 24s can be in warm shop too.

No V7 Sport went away in 1990 but my handle remains. Probably the SV650 & 250 Ninja will get cold. The 300 Ninja will get to stay in warmth.

UPDATE!! I went to drain carb and examine but found someone hadn't filled the tank! They say one of the biggest reasons for General Aviation accidents is failure to top up when making stops. This is why I no longer work on other people's machinery. I'll lose parts, tools, or forget to tighten something but usually find them eventually.

Heh, that pesky bugger who drained the tank when you weren't looking! I wish I could say I'd never done anything like that....

Glad you got it figured out, at least!

I can honestly say that I have never, ever done that. But we won't talk about remembering to turn on the fuel valve....
