Just read 46 pages making up two of my threads about my engine and the minibike I put it on trying see revisit the tuning I did. Couldn’t find it anywhere. How could I not have documented the tuning? How the heck could I write so much BS and fail to include what jets I settled on. I pulled the carb off my minibike and saw I was using a 108 main jet, but the low jet is unlabeled. At one point I mentioned I was going to try a 38 pilot, but nothing definitive in either thread. I also mentioned I raised the needle one clip position.
So I guess my 24mm OKO is using 38 pilot, 108 main, and the needle raised one position.
I have lots of labeled pilot jets to compare to, but no drill bits that fit through my pilot jet.
The bike ran great last time I took it out. Jetting seemed great, but My threads are useless. I have failed.

After sanding down a wire until it fit through the pilot jet I was using and comparing it to spare labeled jets, it appears to be a 35 pilot, which makes sense. The first jet kit I bought had 35 as the smallest. Later I found a kit that also had a 30 and 32.

So 35 pilot, 108 main, and needle raised (clip lowered) one position.
But now that I think about it, I don’t think I ever gave this minibike more than 3/4 throttle. Hopefully I get a chance to do some WOT tuning soon.

Hehe, just about any thunderstorm here in Texas dumps probably at LEAST an inch of rain in ~15 min.

We could use some of that rain. Hope we can stay above a drought this year, but we also need all the flood waters to dry up. Parts of I-29 are flooded over in Iowa, making it hard for some of us to travel to Kansas City, Kansas for training.

We got a notice yesterday that our lease for our apartment will be up at the end of June. If we renew it'll be another $10 more per month than what we are paying now...however the notice did state that if we sign up before the end of this month we could get a $200 concession off rent. I'm guessing it's a one time thing and not for the whole year lease. If it is, we will stay here another year, if not we are moving closer to both of our places of work. Should know by Friday of this week on what the plan will be.

I hate when lease renewal comes around. You have to lock yourself in for another year, and that can be daunting.

On that note. I just bought myself a house!!!! 3 bedroom 2 bathroom, small pool, with a mid sized garden that won't have me mowing for hours It even has a small flatlet that I will lease out to supplement my bond repayments. I move in at the beginning of September

Speaking of random things, Turn off, or if you're like me, unplug your internet, and open a new tab in google chrome, and search something. The goal is to get the dinosaur screen. Once you have the no internet/dinosaur screen hit the up arrow on your keyboard, and see how far you can go.

That game is rigged. It's worse than old school Gameboy Tetris.

It's been 20 years since I played it. Maybe 65000.

Wow I'm an idiot. Probably should read it closer while I'm at work. I know I shouldn't be on my phone at work, but it's so boring. Anyway, for the Google game, my high score is probably around 500. I know I'm terrible.
