Odd thing, I put some liqui moly, a German fuel additive into the tank. Ran two full tanks with the additive, and now for the last few days the choke is working as it should.



Before, with the choke on the idle speed never changed. Now the idle speed is high as it should be with full choke, it runs better on choke, and the flow from both exhaust seems to be more equalised.


Now, I am one of the many who believes these additives are nothing but a marketing gimmick. But it can't be coincidence, so I guess the carb can come off and be thoroughly cleaned properly now.

Wondering if in fact the product contains moly, and if it does did it somehow lubricate the tip of the enricher cable?

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Gets its name from Molybdenum disulfide allegedly.

I'm wondering how the moly doesn't foul the plugs?

I have no idea! They are a well respected name among the motoring enthusiasts in Europe. Be interesting to see how this products helps if anything, and I am a very skeptical person about such products. I used to work on cars a lot and nothing beats cleaning by hand.


Well it helped with my choke issue, or coincidence! I do want to take the carbs off soon and clean them up.
