Bad luck with the air filter. After you've done a compression check, and if it's fine. Make sure the fuel vents in the tank isn't blocked and that there is no water in your fuel.
I just got back from the Vancouver Motorcycle Show, lots of people there taking advantage of the "Free Motorcycle Parking".I'm still blown away that someone in Canada road a motorcycle in January!! Props!!
Not riding in the wet should work.... The only thing is that pod filters are probably also not great in the wet I'm guessing, or is there a good workaround for that?
The mountain passes are where the curves are, bringing a little cloud effect moisture down with the wind-chill factor into the range where you got the icing on the OEM carbs. Sure, its 90 degrees F when I left the house, but 20 minutes later it will be 30-40 cooler. And lets lay some of the blame where it belongs, the Mikuni carbs were never made to put up with that ethanol crap we have for gas now.None of my carbs ever ice up because unlike some of you I’m intelligent enough to not ride when it’s cold . ��
Every time I get under the tank I adjust the snorkels to face more forward. Thanks for the tip, never thought to just take them out.Unfortunate
The stock airbox is very effective, I used a K&N with success. Most take snorkels out, I did and loved the intake roar.
The filter/intake should not pass dirt nor sand if properly installed.
