So a visit to the Dyno today but didnít quite go to plan. 2 carbs were leaking fuel from the filters, so I left the bike there for float height adjustment & a run on the Dyno. He did say the fueling seemed good when it was running

The shop didnít do anything to the bike in the end which I wasnít too impressed at the time but Iím glad he didnít in the end. I ended up stripping the carbs & all the O rings were shot so I replaced all of them & set the float heights. I took the bike back & ran it on the Dyno, 1dt run he said itís not getting enough fuel. We raised the needles & ran again but still not enough. Luckily Iíd took my set of jets & needles so I removed the 145ís & replaced them with 155ís. 3rd run was much better you could hear the difference. A couple more runs setting the needle position & screwing in the air screw 1/2 turn to 2 1/2 turns as it was rich on idle. Iíve moved the battery up a little higher to help the air get to the filters. Iíve covered 100 miles on it now & im telly pleased but Iíve had to change the bars from flat bars to ultra low due to pins & needles in my right fingers
