the bike ran way better today, funny how much difference that small adjustment can make.

glad it was useful, part 3 is where I actually adjust the valves the others are taking it apart, so if you got that you can skip to part 3.

I think I do it a bit different than most, but it works for me and have had great success with it, this is the 2nd time I have done it on this bike. As a side note my milage is still down even though the bike is running awesome, so think I need to clean and rebuild the carbs. ,I will get new plug wires and boots first cause it needs them anyway but I know in the back of my head the carbs need to be done.

Well not to get off subject, so started a new thread on the issues of decreased gas milage.
