Got this stripped down completely yesterday, inside is rust free, outside is as rust free as can be, the rest treated. Holes were welded and patched over. Today im hoping to mud it, and get fairly far, dry time will be the death of me. #suzuki#sp400#caferacer#cafe#enduro#builtnotbought
Wow, this is cool! From @italiandreammotorcycle — go have a look at someof the other shots, this bike is BADASS! Looks to have an #SP400 engine which are great powerful units(I had an #SP370 I never shoulda let it go...
Big thanks to @crock_06 for his assistance and hospitality!
The other week we determined fuel wasn't getting from the carb to the cylinder. The main jet was good, the needle looked fine but today when we popped (read: hammered) out the old "needle jet" (diffuser) the thing was clogged with a silt/clay like substance. We pressed a new one in and a few hearty kicks later she fired up!
I have no effing clue as to how this "needle jet" diffuser got so fouled up. I've only owned her for 60km... the old fuel filter wasn't clogged... breathing tubes were good... maybe dust got past the previous owner's low-budget air filter (read: a rag which was sucked into the carb and which was immediately replaced by a real air filter)? Better get some cylinder cleaner...
