JT has been making sprockets for a long time. I'm not sure about chain, maybe that too.

I don't know about that, but they make decent front sprockets. I've had good luck with the reasonably priced RK chains.

A petcock can't supply too much fuel, but the float valves can leak and let too much fuel in. The fuel can then spill out the overflow tubes.

When I went from non-O-ring to O-ring chains I was amazed at how much force it took to compress the master link enough to get the clip properly into its grooves. Is there any chance you're not doing...

You can always downshift to accelerate, once you're past 1st gear. You just might need to downshift farther if you have a taller final drive ratio.

That's an advantage on the street too, avoiding lots of extra shifts because you put on a small front sprocket in hopes of better acceleration.

I'm not sure why you don't believe the point I'm making, which is once you're up to the HP peak and can stay near it, the final drive ratio has little to do with acceleration. I have a degree in...

I keep trying to.

It's the overall ratio from the engine crankshaft to the rear wheel that matters. When you're starting off the line and haven't gotten to peak HP yet, low overall reduction...

Once you're in 1st gear and get to the max HP RPM, the lower sprocket ratio won't help anyway, since from then on you shift stay in the max HP band. You may be in 3rd when the guy with stock...

Hello Brandon, welcome to the board. If I had a carb problem like that I'd send them to our ducatiman for a complete rebuild to new spec.

What makes you think the engine oil was 2-stroke oil?

Are you actually running the bike on the road to shift? It won't shift normally if you're trying to do it while it's sitting still.
