So I fired it up in the garage. The idle is way high. cable isn't binding at all, good return spring action.
I'm no carb guy. I just changed the needle clip from #3 to #5 and put a 165 in place of the 170
Air screw is basically closed.

I'm sure you can help me sort it on the ice tomorrow!
Yer too lean. Open the air screw 1.5 turns. Put in a 168.

Car talk is near done. Coffe near done. Out to put the tank and seat on the 300 and to the bago I go.

Lobster is there now and Jesse and ben are going soon.

Lobster says lots of rigs parked on the ice near shore near Pete's....

When I checked yesterday.... the ice was bumpy as hell. But 12" in most places.

Great day riding today.

Big Auggie and Svflyer both rode up to the lake.





Clark chasing Ben around.


Zora's first time out this year.


The track turned to a big Slushie pretty quick, so Ben and I were practicing our tight turns.

I set a new personal Limbo record for that one I think.

Hopefully there will be good ice for the race in West Bend next weekend.

It will be fine early in the day after some cold tonight.

I took a 15 minute break later in the afternoon and the ice went from pretty OK to shit in that time.

Just have to lay out a new track, or ride outside the old?

I am out for Sunday. Going to go to Milw. and replace a failed ( 3 " of water in the basement) water heater for a buddy.

Have fun.

Today I'd say the ice was very nice till about 1:00ish. Then the top couple inches got to where even untracked ice would go from great to slick in mid corner. And as for a new track, there is plenty of bare real estate our there. Just move the cones over and have fun!!!
