Cool. That's the key. Crusierbob
, I feel for you driving in South Florida. I also used to live there, and yes, it's really hot. You may notice that the carb
bowl is very small. I believe it was designed that way to save space, however, it also only holds a small amount of fuel, which takes less time to heat up as opposed to a larger bowl.
As I said, I've owned two RoadStars, and they both did it. Mikuni carbs, gotta luv'em!
The one thing that almost eliminated it on my O6 was replacement of the stock air cleaner box. More air, cooling carb = no percolation.
Good luck. I guess you could always move to Alaska. It will never get hot there!
