Diesel in the mix

Post  Kaupy1962 on Sun 09 Oct 2011, 9:51 am

Got a 650 ninja brought back to me yesterday after doing the full tune on it a couple of weeks ago. It was a real mess then. Home made air filter, all vacuum pipes open, pair valve system half missing. Plugs shot, fuel pump not working. After a few hours of cleaning balancing and blocking the beast ran like a dream. Lethal at 10,000rpm and beyond. Yesterday it comes back to me spluttering plumes of charcoal out of the exhaust, knocking, no power, no revs. The wife commented that the fuel smelt really bad so I popped the tank cap and sure enough, the guy had lent the bike to a mate whom had put Diesel in it. Now I have to do a full strip of the carbs again and hopefully, after some clean fuel it might be a goer again.

That would be an ex mate now. Shouldn't do any long term harm. New plugs and fresh fuel should be enough.
