1st Test Ride        

I made a short test run of about 20 miles. It's pretty easy to tune. I started with the unit set to "rich" and had good performance on the street but I wasn't able to get the throttle open.

On the freeway traffic was pretty heavy so finding a spot to open the throttle took a bit but once I did. Almost immediately noticed a stumble and started turning the control to lean. My speed increased smoothly and consistently until I needed to roll off the throttle and start over ... I really don't need a ticket. I finally rotated the control lean until the acceleration stop and more throttle didn't provide more forward motion. ? turn back toward rich and I exited the freeway to ensure the midrange was good. It was good. solid pull from ? to ? throttle.

I'm a bit surprised at how lean the control is set with a #100 main jet. It makes me wonder how much adjustment I'll have at altitude. That test well be done in a couple of weeks.
