As The Idle Screw Turns

A few quick notes about where i am on the perpetual carburetor tuning Soap Opera. I realized a couple of days ago some of my tuning weirdness was a result of inconsistent fuel delivery from the gas tank, which i resolved. It could still idle more constantly but overall it's now running pretty damn well with:
  • 180 Main Jet
  • Middle notch on the needle
  • Countless pilot jet cleanings
It's still really hard to start WARM without priming. Not sure what that's about. Still need to check the timing. Rob has also recommended confirming the valve timing a couple of times. Dad recommended checking the coil voltage once, that still might be a good idea.

I've never had a bike that was hard to start warm before...
