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

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

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.

Ok, I noitced looking from the rear. The left side muffler has a lot more exhaust pressure coming out of the pipe than the right side. Is this normal or indicative perhaps that the lesser side needs some carb attention or something else?
I do need to get these carbs looked at I think. I noticed when I put full choke on, there is no increase in idle speed, it only enriches the the mixture (can smell it from exhaust!).
I live in the Netherlands so Jacks is not really an option. Probably doesn't ship overseas and I don't really want to wait too long for shipping anyways.

Forgive me, I am a being funny, but actually serious. JRW has a guy that does these in his sleep and has been as a service to Rebel owners for many years. Turnaround keeps the bike parked, but the result is worth it. He uses an ultrasonic cleaner and actually test them before returning. With the ability to immediately replace parts and 'guarantee' why wouldn't you? No, I am not an employee or on commission, but do know that he is a savior to the Rebel owner and a genuinely good guy.
