Also try this,run with the fuel cap loose,Also try turning fuel tap
off while idling,does it clear up as fuel level drops.Same again what
happens if you tickle carb while idling.
- I've never had a problem heel-n-toeing sports cars. The real PITA is
when it stalls on a four lane road at a light, in the left hand lane up
against a curb with no shoulder on the road around the DC metro area
with 10,000 or so cars behind you and you have to get off, put her up
on the center stand and struggle for 5 minutes to get it restarted. It
is more than just a PITA. It is down right dangerous.
No help offered here, but hey CJ, where in the DC Metro area do you hang out?? I work at the USDOT just down the street from the Washington Navy Yard.
I have the original 500 cc, and I also have idling problems.? I have to constantly retweak the timing and the idle speed.? I know what you mean about stalling in DC traffic -- that's the only time I need the ES feature!
