The Kawasaki is easy going and will start at the press of a button. The Triumph is a kinky girl and isn’t turned on until choked hard...

In all seriousness, it had a bad idle and wouldn’t run unless half-choked. So I sprayed in some carb cleaner in the carbs, ran in some premium gas with a dash of sea-foam, and started playing with the choke adjuster to get it right. Apparently it wasn’t on “full choke” when I selected it on the handlebar and had to go to the adjuster on the engine to get it right. Now it starts much easier and idles smoothly.


Next up is to close up the new fairing I made and see if I can’t add some aerodynamic smoothing or maybe some cubby holes or something.
