I'm developing a bad habit of replying to things by assuming they're at the bottom of thread.  I blame it on this crack forum I'm addicted to...

I rode 185 miles yesterday.

I wish I could.  Maybe I need an intervention.

What happened, you strip a bolt?

How'd you know?

...Yes.  One of the screws on the left side carb was too tight, got an extracting bit and she came off in a jiffy.  I also swapped out the sparkplugs and changed the oil while we were at it. 

The main jet and pilot jet both were clogged up, and there was black crap all over the place that turned yellow and green and was dry if you broke it apart...  Jesus...  Never let a bike sit for 3 months without draining the float bowls... (He was if Afghanistan and on leave for a month, had a guy riding it for him ,then that guy stopped riding said bike.).

I don't know about that.  My dog was an Olympian in that sport where I'm just an amateur.  He could drive women to cry and small children to run away in his presence.  I miss that dog.

Seems to be a lot of that going around.
