A great run you made there. Wish you had given us a heads up, the Old Warhorse may have tagged along? Will be headed to Mexico in November myself.
Ya we should meet up one of these days since your in Oregon too. I drained the puke tube after the whole trip and defiantly should have drained it earlier, Well now I now better!

Where in mexico are you headed?

ahh, the manual starts off on the kickstand but then later on it says upright. I missed that reading it the first time, thanks... (but i wasn't screwing it in when checking oil level)

Thanks!

(I just put a brand new OEM air cleaner in & drained puke tube and its running tip top)

Portland to Baja, 3500 miles

Hey all just got back from a trip to central baja mexico and back. It was a lot of fun. I didn't have too many problems... I was going somedays upwards of 450 miles a day and going 70 mph on I5 and it felt very reliable. Coming back north in cali it started hesitating and then would drive past first gear. I assumed that it was from the bad gas i bought in mexico (from a barrel) and dumped it all out and put new gas it. (that did not solve it) so the mechanic cleaned the carburetor and also undid the air filter. (the air filter was toast and was wet with gas or oil). I was also only getting about 60 mpg at the time. The mechanic charged me 280 bucks.

Do you guys think that the bad air filter was caused by dirty gas in the carb? I am suspicious in that it seems like my only culprit was the air cleaner/filter to begin with. I am thinking this because i connected in back up again today and it sounds like it did when it broke down...

Also should mention that it burned a lot of oil! I had to add 2 quarts throughout the trip. I checked the oil as the manual said, on kickstand and after its on 3-5 minutes.
