Everybody's favorite vintage race is coming up! I'll be making my Pre-Modern class debut - hoping to give Old School the business at the back of the (much younger) pack. Who's in?

Looks like Bruce will be taking care of our course needs again this year! Which is always a good thing :biggrin

I'll be there on something. Hopefully on one of my actual Retro bikes. It's been awhile since I've raced a hill course on a small poor. I think NH on the RM/TS 175 was the last time.. lol

Old School, like you I’ve got an early 90’s KTM with the Keihin idle adjustment incorporated in the choke knob. Which direction makes the idle revs increase? Mine doesn’t seem to do much.

It's a fuel bleed so it's kind of in the middle it works. To far closed it doesn't allow enough fuel and too far open it's too rich and dies. Clockwise closes it.

I’ll be there. It’s actually a pretty fun course since Bruce too over the vintage trailboss duty.

Check the torque on those bolts Chis. Don’t want you to loose your seat battling the other Bill :rofl

Thanks, a little fiddling with the idle adjustment (more fuel) with the air screw (more air) brought about the desired result. Which is good since I'll be idling down those hills at Satan's lol.
