Thanks for the advice.

entry hole in the left side). This will require larger main jets.

there is no official importer. I have also read that the D&D system
is very loud. You might be just as well buying 3 short megas from a
British bike shop, and having a 2 into 3 adaptor fabricated. You
will almost certainly have to rejet, but don't be put off by that,
it's not expensive (about £4 per jet) and it doesn't hurt.

- If you sort out poor running while wet please let us know. I've been able
to run about 2 weeks in steady rains (our last one was 43 days). I think mine
only drops one cylinder. An owner of a 2004 here mentioned his did the
same. I've used dielectric grease, sold at our Honda shop, on the both ends of
the plug wires. The wires from the loom had a coating from new.
Our other thought is that the density of air is such that it effects the
air/fuel ratio. I know that those heavy humid days effects my breathing which
improves with a change of the tradewinds.
If you can put together a 3/3 system close to home I recommend full
98 Thunderbird Sport
02 Mini Cooper
