Some carbs can be a real pain. I love the old round slide Mikunis they put most everything back in the day, except Honda. Very reliable!

Yeah, I know the vacuum assisted newer ones are. I was picking at Jub cause I know he was talking about the old mechanical Mikunis that the throttle cable hooked straight to the slide! Hey, remember when you wouldn't get the slide matched up with tang inside the slide bore, and when you screwed the slide back down it was wide open throttle?! Cranked up WFO!!! Watching people trying to catch the bike when they would throw it in gear to kill the engine! Or so I was told! Boy, those were some fun days!

Ok, I'm in.

I love some good seafood. Set the date and I'll be there if I'm not working.
