The left one is in the normal range, but the right one is only < out. Not
that it makes much difference if it is in or like that; sync does not seem
to be affected much. Which would suggest there is some air leaking
somewhere. Still need to spray some to verify.
I can feel some play in the butterfly shaft if I hold the pulley and wiggle
it up and down. I guess I am looking at a new tb, at some point at least.
Bike has 35,000 miles on the clock btw.
> Is/are the seals still on the butterfly stop screws? Just a thought
Yes, there is.
Idle while riding in 45F weather today for about 100 miles was about
1000-1100, which seems ok. I guess the motor was getting a little hot from
fiddling around and adjusting yesterday without airflow and consequently
running a little faster idle.
All: thanks for the replies so far both on and off list. This list rocks.
