Default Big shiny hot thing in the sky!!!

Not sure how many of you guys will get to see this, so here's a pic of the crossing of the sun by venus!
Not the best picture I've ever taken, but I was avoiding being blined whilst using my big lens

Right ... another "reversible" mod.

The pinch test does confirm what you say, but the only thing which I was concerned about again, is that the gap on the throttle barrel in the carb is again less than 1mm - are you guys certain that your gaps are 1mm? I measured mine and its about 0.7mm. Leaning the LSN and the adjusting the idle screw will lower this again.

Cheers, Mark-
Between 0.7 and 1mm is fine, its a guideline only. If the gap is too small, say less than 0.5mm, it may still be idling fine and everything but then you *know* that the engine is not optimally tuned.

All the needles are inter-related so as a guideline, what I see most engine "gurus" write/say is that with a gap of 1mm or thereabouts and with all 3 needles (LSN, MSN, HSN) set correctly, your engine should purr, growl and ROAR ... respectively!

It took me looong time to come to grips with engine tuning (and still learning a lot) but what I did experience in the past is that if you have your idle screw is set too small (less than 5mm), you *can* get a purring idle and you may even get the engine to go fast with this despite what looks like a non-optimal setting (you know how we're all good with tuning screwdrivers and various fuel brewing!) but you can bet your bottom dollar that all it takes now is the slightest change in ambient temperature or humidity and you'll be scraching your head again because the poor engine will get "cranky". If you race enough, you'll see some friends who kicks bu*t during free-practise and then have problems during the mains.

Yes, I was half expecting that it'll be completely wiped out this morning. Maybe they decided to go play somewhere else.

And the MP version has a modified conrod!

Sow, that was a Mugen modified version - I didn't like to put my name on it as I simply discovered the modification, I didn't implement it
