Sedate and Chorse : Are you guys serious?

I screwed the little swrew at the bottom of the carb,drained some fuel thru there,also got rid of the sidestand-switch
Bike started agen,and all was good,
Seems there was only some dirt/sh!t in the carb.

Glad you got it sorted. Hey ... Sedate and Chorse were just trying to help, boet!

I've often gone for the most complicated solution when it's a stupid issue I overlooked.

+1

I remember a recent case where an oke was seriously baffled by his bike starting and then mysteriously dying after riding a bit.

Sidetrack pointed out that his choke was probably stuck open which turned out to be the case.

Never dismiss the "seemingly" obvious

Dirt in the carb means more problems later, fit an inline filter or else the dirt wich first ended up in the tank will keep going down the fuel line.

Water in the fuel is another story though... passes through filters. :o
