Cool. How do you like riding it? I didn't think I wanted a small motorcycle until a few years ago when a friend made me try his Yamaha 100 on the Dragon. I immediately set one up for myself, just...

Hi $wim, it's good to meet you. Being able to set the idle speed will be necessary at some point, even it not now, so you should get that adjustment working and go from there.

It's good to hear of your progress, Chloe. I don't recommend Plastidip. My 250 had it when I bought it, and it quickly started peeling off in places like where my legs contacted the tank. On top...

My pregen has standard 7/8" OD bars. Mirrors like that usually will clamp to the OD. The supplied adapter will go in the bar and provide a 7/8" OD surface for the clamp to go on if you can't put it...

If your valve clearances have gotten too small, this can happen. It's not definitely the cause, but it's what made mine act that way.

Of course there is some alcohol in the gasoline in most cases, and that's polar.

I used ordinary stainless steel washers from my #4 washer drawer if I remember right. I selected a set that were 0.020" (1/2mm) thick.

That would point to something besides the petcock. Danno has some good photos of what needs to be cleaned in these carbs, maybe he'll post them once again.

I'm not sure what you mean by primaries and secondaries. There's the main jet circuit, and then the needle in its jet, is that what you're referring to? Also there's the idle circuit, but that...

It would take a few seconds for insufficient petcock flow to make the power drop at full throttle. If it does it immediately, something else is wrong. My guess is that the carbs are still not...

Well, I learned something too then, because I didn't know the very early ones had prime too. My old H2 has a prime position, which is pretty handy since it's kick start only.

Good for you! You're showing that you really want to do this, and commitment like that is usually successful.

You can shift into first gear while still moving, just don't be going very fast.

Acetone and ATF will separate with the acetone on top if it sits overnight, so I'm not sure what advantage that mix will have sitting that long. It's very flammable though, so be careful.
