Interesting Bill, yes if there was an overheating issue that could partially explain the CPU fan, the one that's now a part of our Nation's landfills. That would really make me happy if that was the path here- new pilot makes bike run better, later in life I actually ride to the point of having a heat issue, followed by proper install of KTM fan and other doo dads as necessary.
Going to Sun Ent. at lunch today, hoping to pick up a carb rebuild kit (bunch of o-rings, essentially) and a new side cover for the crankcase. My second issue is the e-start, so my sites are set on tightening that torque limiter as the logical next step. Other than some carb cleaner, any other job-specific tools I should have on hand here?
