I didn't do quite so well, but my 650 Alp is far less modified. Oh, and the fact I'm not the rider Rob is!!

Well done mate.

Ray: What would be the symptoms if there is not a good seal between the carb-rubber conector-cylinder head? Would it be worth checking it before dealing with the carbs? Enlightment please!

Success ! the petcock was not allowing enough fuel through and that didnt show up til mid high rpm and was compensated by fuel screws lower. Now it pulls cleanly through 7 or 8k and i don't care beyond that. Maybe in 10 years i go into the carbs,or not.

Carlos,

I think even old, hard carb boots will seal pretty well unless they are severely cracked or waaaay out of shape.

If they do leak, I'd imaging you'd get all kinds of odd fueling behavior since air would leak past and create lean conditions. This might even occur at random times and might be difficult fo diagnose.

The main problem is just getting the carbs on and off the heads. I replaced mine last year on both my bike and Chris's bike. Makes removing and reinstalling the carbs much much easier.

Do you have a particular problem with fueling right now?

coughing or stumbling engine at low rpms like idling, backfiring or popping when decelerating.

I knew Mark would know.

Forgot about backfiring on decel.

I broke the vacuum line from the carb a few weeks ago during the descent of Mt. Hamilton (about 6 miles of steep downhill). I knew something was wrong because the bike would actually backfire....loudly.

Never heard that from the TA before. Pulled off and was able to fix it trailside. So, yeah, if you're sucking in air it will let you know when you back off the throttle.

NAATS 2013 is cancelled.

I'm passing this info along as some of you expressed interest in coming to the rally.

Some of you may have heard about the Black Forest Wildfire here in Colorado. My wife and I had to evacuate Tuesday afternoon with our dogs and whatever we could throw in my truck and her car. Yes, I threw my AT and Super Tenere in the bed. I just found out the house is a total loss. As much as I would like to ride with everyone, I need to reset and reassess. I hope to see everyone soon at another gathering.
