Shakedown kms are going well. 

Sorted lighting issue out. Just sorted front brake issue.

Next is to play around with front sprocket ratios as I feel like im only hitting 90km top end and it doesnt sound like its revving very high. Will remove the 17t I fitted and try the 15t that came with the motor. I feel its the big 2.75 Tyres that are sucking my top end

i have been struggling with the chinese VM22 on the 140 getting an off idle stutter out, said fuck it this morning and dropped $160 clams on a genuine VM26-606 Mikuni, excited to see how this transforms the engine, everyone says they are the best carbs for the YX140s

Shakedown rides are going well. Have settled on gearing and Blake the GC is sending me a carb that may increase my top end a bit more.

Prob done a 100 trouble free Kms with nothing rattling loose. 

This morning I registered a new plate for the bike so will start taking to work and rack up a few hundred Km before we load up and head north in 15 days !

You already know my thoughts on that carb Blizzo, spend a little time getting it set up and you'll love the results!

None of the China carbs come close to the real deal.

I'll probably look into a super legit carb in a couple months, for now my 110 is happy enough it just doesn't like going from WOT for like 20 minutes to stopping and keep running haha. Also the top end feels lean and lazy.

Wow that's close!

I've still got a few things to sort before Ronnie gets picked up on Friday morning.  I'm a little bit antsy about it. 

My rack required  not inconsiderable alteration. It's been done by a GC. I'm going to refit it at 2:50pm today

 

@Thphantum

Do you have space in your vehicle to carry a spare 10x3 inch rear wheel for me please?  

 

Everyone I mention this to seems pretty jealous.
