Yes sir! Working on our dirt bikes! I think mine is pretty close… but there is something wrong with Audrey’s rig., I think it’s something in the timing and or advance… I took it all apart. Looks like the springs on the advance thing are worn out?? I took mine apart and the springs were taunt hers had slop?John JonesModeratorJune 19, 2022 at 5:33 amPost count: 9652
you Give it throttle, and it bogs, like no advance.. you can go on and off the throttle and work it through it… but sucks.. kinda like a bad acc pump on our VW?alykatParticipantJune 19, 2022 at 6:37 amPost count: 771John JonesModeratorJune 20, 2022 at 6:11 amPost count: 9652

Time to give Travis a quick call ? Bet he has just what you need to get that rig back in action.
Your right., I think I will do just that today!! 😎 I feel like I should be able to figure out this little dirt bike.. 😎 I could swap parts back and forth with mine to trouble shoot it…. 😎 Franz or Ben would already have it fixed for me… 😎BBWBParticipantJune 20, 2022 at 8:56 amPost count: 1205

Put a timing light on it, see where the base timing is. Sounds like advance is not working or the jetting is off. One other thing could be the timing chain is a tooth out, or just plain wore out and the tensioner is not doing it’s job. Unlikely if the engine has never been apart, but on a fourty year old bike, you never know. I’m sure Travis can figure it out in about five minutes. 🙂

Hauled it out to newbolds.. he said carb… so I came back and took it apart again, this time running tiny reamers into alll the holes. I think the holes on the side of the emulsion tubes were plugged.

I agree that Dove Blue looks good on non-VWs as well. I painted this one last year for my brother.Gretchen JonesModeratorJune 23, 2022 at 9:52 amPost count: 1178
