She goes pretty good.  There is still an idle issue i need to figure out, but out side of that she runs strong.

Man, those pilot jets must be fairly small! Is it hard to access the plugs on the 400 engine?

Hey Treeve how about a ride this Saturday? Are you free? Saturday am start? Nothing dramatic just a ride somewhere.

Hey Andy,

I would love to, but i have a couple issues.  First, I already have plans to take the kayak out and do a little bass fishing Saturday morning with a buddy.  Second, my inspection sticker on both bikes expired 5/31.  The local guy where i go get them inspected is only open on Saturdays and had been know to be a douche in the past so I have to get the bikes running tip top before i take them in.  I probably won't get a chance to get them inspected until next weekend.

Yeah they are pretty small.  The plugs are easy to access.  The issue isn't that the bike won't idle, the issue is that when the bike is idling, it will randomly surge.  The first two things i am going to check are cable routing and air leaks.  When I put in the 400f engine, i upped the idles from 35s to 40s because that's what i read somewhere.  Well it turns out that was a bad idea because the bike was running super rich, idled like shit, and fouled the plugs.  I didn't switch them back because i knew the new exhaust was coming and it would flow a little better.  Turns out the new exhaust seems to do ok with the larger idles, its just the surging issue.  Outside of idling, the bike feels happy.

Air leaks seem the likely culprit. Synching didn't make any difference , I am assuming. Not that it matters, but are you running points?
