Rejet: or not to Rejet
So I've been in the process of rebuilding my bike for most of the month. I recently shaved the ears and coastered in addition to some cosmetic changes, looking forward to spacing the pickups. But this is a carb question, at this stage the bike runs lean and from what I've been told I run the risk of burning through my pistons. I'd like to get the best milage milage as mechanically possible, at this stage, but went ahead and ordered the jets last month. I've been sitting on the carburator rebuilding, and can't really afford anything new I gave a nearly full can of carb and choke cleaner, plenty of time and willpower. Should I wait till I can spend money on the rebuilding?
Is it possible for me to tune and clean the carbs without what I may have lying around this week, or should I wait till I can get a mercury tuning gauge.
Also the question about staying with stock jets or should I change to the 42/142's and ride her easy, I really like to putt along in lower rpms in third gear, and the feel of the thunder and inertia.
I scheduled my Motor cycle skills test on the 4th of August, I've owned the bike for two summers this being the third I thought I should at least be legal.
