So, I'm out banging my head on the wall trying to figure out what is the
problem and why my 3.3 won't wheelie anymore.
After WOT runs the idle seemed to stay up until I stopped completely.
Over and over.. thinking somethingn was*** up on the clutch or
something. Or to lean causing a*** idle. But no adjustments fix
it. And 15 seconds at idle and WOT it still is sluggish.. RPMs even
drop a little right after takeoff then pick up. Nothing makes a
difference though with tuning!
I get mad and pick it up.. all of a sudden the wheels start moving..
faster.. faster.. faster... Ahah!
Idle was too high.. duh! After High speed run it would get cleaned out
and idle where it "should"... applying breaks stopped it. I looked
again and sure enough it was surging... could just barley see the spur
start to move, then stop.. over and over. Not quite enough to get it to
move, but when off the ground, enough to start spinnin them wheels!
I put it up on blocks to adjust idle until it wheels don't move.
Thinking it's gonna die when I stop, I take off for a high speed run...
it stays running!
A couple more runs and a pinch test... WAYY rich.. lol..
I do the idle thing a few more times and adjust LSN.. getting there. A
little more to go. Wow... interesting. Starting to understand more
why they say adjust idle first, then LSN.. repeat until perfect.
Wheelies aren't quite there yet.. but, I noticed if I do a quick On, Off
On, Off, On it might wheelie. (probably a mix of preloading the front
shocks and leaning out the low end).
And if I go around a corner and hammer it when straightening it did a
couple nice long riding wheelies too. Didn't I hear somewhere these
things lean out around corners?
I also am starting to notice at 1/2 tank it is leaner than full (I tune
with 1/2 tank). But the lower it gets, the leaner it seems to get (and
So, tommorow I'll burn through a few more 1/2 tanks to tune.. :)
