Re: Attained Bullet Nirvana
I cycle to office these days. So my tb is used way less than before. Plus I have a large tank and no odometer.
I honestly don't remember when I filled in fuel.
Last Monday, I took my bike to office. She was a charm getting there. On the return it had some trouble. Switched off. Would not stay on. Idled at some specific rpm. Would suddenly move to extreme high rpms.
Had a crazy ride back home. I did not have to push the bike at all. She was just messing with my mind.
I decided that maybe its time I get her serviced. So the next day, I cycled down to my mechanic and fixed up an appointment for 19 December.
On Thursday, took the bike out to pick up some milk. Same story. But she brought me back home. I would have had to push it uphill but the sweetheart brings me home.
That evening I tinker with her. The sparks are fine. The tank has the sound of fuel. Air filter is dry and clean. Now she no longer starts.
Finally, I decide to remove the fuel line and check the flow.
Main is dry. Reserve is just a trickle.
Today brought home 2 L of petrol.
Added it to the tank and then drained the carb.
My 8.5 year old bike has had issues with water getting into the tank. About 2 tablespoons were collected in the carb.
Second kick, bike roars to life.
The sweetheart brought me home, some 8 kms on just fumes.
The next day she brings me back from the shop. On just love.
I am so in love with this bike of mine. I cannot thank God enough for having blessed me with my silver tb. She is the best of the best of the best.
I love her with all my heart.
