Greetings:

Very nice work. Hey run the tranny vent into one of the holes of your custom filter cover. Self-oiling element! :)

A floor mat would make that bike look sick. I love the black look an AF16 brings to a spree instead of the silver/gray engine color. Looks so good on red Spree's.

So I took her for another run today (a bit cooler outside) and was topping out around 32-33mph. After going down a hill the engine choked out so I am thinking either too much fuel or too much air. I plug some holes on the cover and it bogged very early and wouldn't get up to speed. I opened the fuel jet a 1/8 turn at a time (starting from 1.5 turns) and still didn't stop the downhill choke. I ended up taking the air filter cover off and bam pulls great up to speed (35mph) and doesn't choke going downhill. I heard you will seize the engine with just a pod filter but it seems to run the strongest.

-Should I add more holes to the filter cover? Till is doesn’t bog downhill?

-Up jet the carb so it doesn’t seize the engine?

I plan on buying a new plug and running with the pod filter to see the condition. I have a nice smoke trail behind me. I just feel like the engine wants too much air.

That motor WILL do 40 all day with the right filter hole combo. Try less holes. More isnt always better with these babies.
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.

I have, just double checked to make sure I installed the #80 jet and confirmed it. I guess I am going to add more holes till she is runs the best and buy a new plug to insure the air/fuel mixture is ideal.
