As far as oil, all bikes are different. Ive always gone for the lightest oil around. Previously ive seen peo...

It could just be that the floats are jamming inside the bulb because theyre allowed to travel too far. If you check the QLD beta site. There is an article there on how to tune a carb properly for a beta. Its the same problem, and while the carb is a bit different its a quick job and worth a shot.

Having to ply practically every bolt with locktite every time you take them out for some ...

So its a bit of a trade off, but i've always fo...
