Last evening I changed my jet for a smaller one (230, remember moss style engine) and lowered the needle a notch. In the process I dropped a small tool and a nut in the casing…. I guess we have all had the pleasure of getting something out of there. Well, my pleasure took several hours…

So, as I did not have the opportunity to take the bike for a spin yesterday I took it to work today. Downjetting makes a great difference. The bike now pulls the longer gearratio (22 T on flywheel, 21 T on outrigger) with ease and also rides a lot better in second. Third still feels like an “overdrive”. I do think the engine still is to rich as it won’t rev very high and the plugs are rather dark. So I’ll try a 210 tonight.

We’re getting there!
