An apology

Postby Drenthe » Thu Apr 10, 2014 7:08 pm



I want to apologize for a comment i made on my post a few days ago. I should learn by now that i shouldn't write when i am very frustrated with something. It had nothing to do with you guys and more to do with my frustration with a certain carburetor. Fortunately the administrators deleted my post and i thank him or them for that. To those of you who have given some of your time to help me out, i want to say thank you and that I am sorry. Hope you all are able to get out and ride this weekend.

I thought I read all the CURRENT posts on this section, but I guess I missed the particular post you are referring to, or it did not offend me (?) .

Speaking for myself, thank you for the apology, but for me, it was not needed.

Other opinions might vary.
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!

I too missed your previous post but I thank you for the apology anyways. Some times those are the toughest words to say, good on you.
I know your pain when working on a project and it just doest want to co-operate with you, venting can be the only release for the frustration . Did you get the issue sorted out yet? 8-)
Ride safe, Todd

Don't go away mad... heck, don't even go away. We are thick skinned (typically) and can take a little venting from others. As long as you're not a regular jerk, vent away. Hope you got your issue figured out.

I had the carburetor rebuilt and i then installed it. Found that fuel was running out of the bowl vent tee. I had the cabs off several times and the carb taken apart a second time. I installed it again and had the same dang problem. Finally pulled off both hose to try and determine which bowl the fuel was coming from and founs that fuel was NOT coming from either bowl. I pulled those hoses out of the way and found that fuel was dlowing from the IDLE screw. The ultra sonic cleaning must have backed it out. It took six turns of the screw to turn it back in. Something so simple delayed me about two weeks but i learned a lesson so its all good. Now to remember how to reinstall the plastics after having them off for 5 weeks.

When soaking a carb or cleaning it ultrasonically you generally remove the mixture screws and jets and everything else that comes off.Glad you got it sorted.Carbs can be frustrating.


If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.
