Nothing major...not bitching or needing an answer, just blathering as I am apt to do...

So the [Triumph] Bonneville had developed a mid-RPM miss late last summer, from just above idle to about 3500 RPM, but ran smooth above that. It was also stumbling a little in light-to-light traffic, which was irritating. So, the first thing I went after was cleaning the carbs; didn't find much, but it was a good exercise, anyway. Put it all back together: Nothing. Replaced the plugs, checked the wires (4800 ohms, which is fine for these) and put in a new, hotter coil. Same thing. Checked and adjusted the valves (which is a pain in the balls as I have to pull the cams out and swap shims). Same same. OK, maybe change the air filter? New high-flow K&N - nada. Well, shit since I'm in there might as well remove the baffle and help it breathe better (a popular mod for Bonneville's is to completely pull the air box and install pod filters - I'm not entirely sure I feel like doing that; a mid point mod is to pull the baffle out, which was only installed to reduce intake noise). Same same. I did some reading and learned that even in my previous, non-slightly modified configuration, I needed a larger pilot jet and an additional 1/2 turn on the air/fuel mixture. With work/holidays/relationship, this sat for a few months, and I finally got a free day today. So I upped the pilots one size and got another turn on there...now, the miss is still sort of there, but it's significantly reduced, I think. Didn't get to take it out as I was out of time, but look forward to doing so next weekend...

Maybe the next bike should have fuel injection...
