alright...here it goes. yesterday i got my clutch to work properly for once, i tightened all my bolts on my bike, made shure everything was sturdy (I still dont have an air filter p.s.) i packed u my tool kit, packed an extra gallon of gas(in addition to my full gas tank) i was all set for my first long ride. hooray... after messing around with the clutch pads for a half hour, i finally put the clutch back together and take it down the road and finally fire it up, i turn around and begin my 10 mile trip to downtown madison. everything worked excellent(except for the part where i blew my exhaust gasket half way and gas poured out of the carburetor the whole time...) i blew my headlight and tail lights..., and since i blew my exhaust gasket, all the burnt carbon and not burnt gas covered the engine which i had to wash when i got home :???: i ran the bike about 35-40 miles yesterday which was fun, but i realized that i had used up my entire gallon of gas (i thought to myself, "thats not right") i know that im supposed to get 150 mpg but right now im gettin 40...this frustrates me, im in desperate need for a newer and more high performance carburetor because those outdated ones SUCK!!! im guessing i leaked out about a half gallon and form-a gasket apparently doesnt work... and to top it all off, i popped my rear tire while washing my bike...THAT REALLY PISSED ME OFF.... anyway feedback would be appreciated and i would like as much advice and info as i can get please. IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN SHOW ME A NICE CARBERATOR THAT HAS REED VALVES FOR ONE OF THESE MOTORS, PLEASE TELL ME!!!!!
