The air/juice adjustment was screwed in temporarily while I was trying to clear out the carb with gobs of throttle down Lilac Alley. I guess I forgot to set it back.
The gas line for sure needs to be replaced, it was cracked pretty badly before the what's-around filter, which was a touch large. More fuel line, maybe a smaller filter. Charlie has some filters, line.
Love the levers with speedholes. Ruler.
If the bike won't pull fifth, it's likely the 16t is too large of a front sprocket. Let's try a 15, or swap back to the 14t. Fifth gear should be usable.
