Quote from: mr72 on October 06, 2023, 04:24:37 AMThis is very interesting. My GS has a weird stumble at part throttle roll-on in midrange rpms, but pulls and runs great at all other conditions. I figured it was my best compromise after doing a whole lot of tinkering with jets and needles and all that. I wonder if my UNI drop-in filter has anything to do with this...I really like the lawn-mower filter mod and keeping the airbox. Great idea. I am about to try swapping a whole different kind of carb into my scooter and I am seriously considering also switching to a lawn tractor muffler and adapting a lawn mower air filter.

The good thing is that Mikuni thoughtfully pre-drills a tiny hole in the centre of each plug. I drilled out the hole a bit and drove in a woodscrew (prepped with its tip ground off) and a pliers to pull them out. They actually popped out without too much effort.

Quote from: mr72 on November 17, 2023, 05:13:21 AMThe reality is exactly opposite of this. Glad I turned off hide long enough to see this post. There's a link in my signature with better information on setting the idle mixture on a GS500.
