Rode to work and back today. Came out to find the bike in a puddle of gas... Seems the fuel line was old or too big, I'll source a smaller filter and line, or otherwise sort the problem. Bike didn't want to idle; found the pilot air screw cranked in, made adj. to stock.. I think it's happier. As was w/o adj. the bike struggles to get past 55mph. indicated. I get the inpression that fifth is an overdrive, it seemed as happy to pull in fourth, time will tell. I also got the tail light to blast on, by re-connecting/bypassing the leads to the front brake lever switch. Progress. Good god it's a slopily sprung thing, doing the funky chicken down geary at 50mph.
