Ethanol

Started to dial in to the E85, -95 needles and mainjets in the 200 and up range.
Great help from B.I.G who is a good Mikuni and other Carbs shop on the front (west) side of Sweden.
I also did my first starts with the handheld starter and that was a relevating revolution... fantastic, I was in doubt considering that the kick start is rock solid when i´m on compression until I wait out the leakdown for the throw, i marked out the crank position on compression, and the thing just
spun the engine effortless, and chok, chokatook , this thing is just what you need when you
are lost in jetting.

Chain Guard

Ready

A/F sensor boss

April

Started and runs fine.
Planning a dyno session at Pro Service but first I will get the motor running on the new juice.
E85 is not that easy to come by as the gas stations switch to 70% Ethanol over the winter (Cold start), and they don´t know what they sell during the period when they phase over to 85%.
Located a supplier and ordered race grade 85% which should get here by next week.
Recorded my current jetting and ordered richer needles for the 45 Mikunis.
As I only use one A/F sensor for the log I had to install one more for the dyno, decided to manufacture it (i know the bungs are cheap) but I have a lathe and everybody should learn how to cut threads....it took me the best part of a day.
Also I beefed up my chain guard, trimmed and installed the Trans Guard which Swecomposite made, and that took me a couple of days as I had to design mounts which can survive.
