So... do you know the history of the carb?

Sure, and thanks for your insight on this,............ The Carb is NEW from ProCycle out in your neck of the woods. I've been speaking with Drum Evans with ProCycle, and he has me all fixed up. Motion Pro is making me some +4" throttle cables to go with the carb. I'll be having a set or two of stock cables for sale in the next few weeks.....

As many of us have a Crf using Crf cables makes for more use of same part which is good.

I have a Crf carb with entire Crf throttle tube and cable set - works well.

It will not remove rust but It will remove a PO paint job from plastic body work if you let it soak for a day or so in 70 degree or higher temperatures.
Good info ! I may have to try that on some stuff I did myself

Which project? The CW enhanced XRL motor or the body/front clip swap on the F100?

I've been working in the garage removing parts from the donor F100 body this morning. My garage is so tight I need to roll the donor outside so I can open the doors and get the last bolt off for each fender.

Waiting for some help to come by. Today, tomorrow, the next day. Who knows.

Many, many years ago I had a customer that was working on his motorcycle with the engine idling. Along comes his toddler as the guy is cleaning the chain.

Toddler leans on the shift lever.

There went dad's thumb.

All depends on how well you scrape the old gaskets off of the cases.

Yeah, Right. Chain is dry by the time I'm shifting to second gear.

WooHooo!!!!

The new CW motor came in today!

Gonna have a wrench fest this weekend!

This one is a 724 10.5:1

Cloverleaf head, dished piston and Phat cam

Gotta get a 6 pack of RedBull

I'll try to not blow it up like the last one (Fukker at a KTM dealership in Miami taped a new jet to a piece of plastic and I did not get all the tape off the jet) Motor meltdown.... Crank, Rod, rings welded to the skirt... Complete rebuild, YUK

Still ran somehow

CW says to put some ZDDP in with the oil and ride it as hard as possible from the first push of the button and ride it like I stole it.... Will do!

Of course this will be after the spark plug is removed, the banjo bolt loosened and oil flow confirmed.

I got my old bike back from CW with a fresh piston (high comp stock bore), new flat track cam, stainless valves, nx 2nd and 5th, etc... It has a Mikuni pumper dialed in perfect and runs great!

I'll report back how the new girl compares
