tajikistan ...

the next day I made 100 meters from the camp and my bike stopped;
could not make the engin start;

took of the snorkel to allow more air into the airbox - nothing; changed the fuel/air mixture - nothing; probably the carburator was stuck with smth, beacause all bkies were very weak, but my just could start;

the bike was dirty and I have never took the carb out so just looked at the std manual; drained out the fuel from the carb as itwas the only thing in the manual about the carb; tried to start the engine and covered with my haned the intake into the airbox - to make some pressure that could clean the carb...and hura! the bike is working!

On the road again:)

After few hours I lost hope (sad monkey) and we were on our way out of this place when a kid came and tald me he bought a mobile phone from somebody and maybe I m interested. yupeee. happy monkey!
