I went through exactly that today. After draining the carbs and tank, I came away with a bike that runs well and over four onces of water. So it may well just be water in the system.

Welcome to my nightmare...

This thread isn't as much about seeking advice as it is documenting Matilda's* issues.

I picked her up a couple of years ago because I missed riding a lot and the price was right. Unfortunately...

Streets is my favorite track. It's where I first set a knee down on an XR100.

I used to race YSRs and NSR-50s there. I'd even do track days. They made me ride in C group, but it was hella fun...

Glad to see people still interested in smokers. They were my mainstay back when I began riding and later when I raced. A YSR or NSR50, 80, or 125 will teach you a ton on the track. My third bike...

I wrote this a while back ('09) on another board. It's basic, but it's what I have. Definitely bump up the preload on the rear shock!

Thanks!

I'm applying selective apathy to some parts of the project. (PU listed a 104 as stock.) She's bike #31 and I'm not worrying too much about what won't get me killed.

I had to plug the compressor into the outlet in the tail section and use it to seat the beads while the engine ran. Good times!

I went for 43/14 (instead of the US stock 45/14). The last Ninja had a 15/45 ratio and it didn't pull as well in the mountains here as I wanted it to.
