Off to llanduno for a couple of days (yippee) so no more on bike until return, hopefully it will start first touch ( wishful thinking)
ALWAYS... finish the individual job... You won't do that again!Brake caliper piston has been pumped in and out a few times and seems to be moving freely, bled again, But how lucky was I since I'd rebuilt it before I never tightened the bolts up and they were only finger tight, lucky escape for me, glad I only annoyed neighbor's twice and never went above 3rd gear, ps good job your lad has a superior mechanic for a dad
WOW that takes me back a good few years lol lol i had the ER50 (showing my age now )Sounds like it maybe weaping fuel past the rear float valve. To be honest when it's not running it shouldn't supply any fuel to the carbs, is it vacuum tap and fuel pump (can't remember that far back?).
I did 2 Bandit 1200's on the trot where the vacuum tap had failed, entire tank of fuel had decanted into the sump!. The float valves aren't meant to stop fuel when in storage.
10mm gap with bright blue spark is more than good enough 👍
My lads MT-5, we've finished all the wiring now, got a pair of wheels to go in and bit of painting to do.
He did a few practice starts up and down the garden today!.
