Re: High altitude carb jetting

hi 99

I do live at around 1500 feet, where I adjust my carbi. ( mikuni tm 32 )

at levels around 6000 feet mixture is slightly richer, so no problems so far.

spark plug: NGK 8 ES iridium ( if I am right, ( I am not near the bike ) )

Re: Crankshaft experiment

sorry jack, but for such experiments A/F Ratio should be monitored continually .

the change in A/F ratio is much more quickly as expected and parts are so expensive......

the experience you will made with a A/F reading system you can always taking with you to a next engine.

So if this is the case, then at high rpm with the suggested mods, we could get no oil flow to the rockers. yeas, IMO, this is what happened. but we must see, as the rockers and the cam tapeds are NOT in rotating motion, they are just linear motion and this with a short time of NO forces on them. th...
