I went at it for about 20 minutes with a hose and mud was coming out like crazy, but i thought i cleaned it well. I changed my coolant also, well i drained the plug on the radiator which isnt ALL the coolant and i WILL be adding some water wetter before i go through the relocation. I just got a Clymer manual and will drain all the coolant out and add water wetter and see what happens. I dont think the coolant is bad, the bike has 58 hours and hasnt been ridden in ~2 years!
Well here is the problem i was having... I took it to Honda so they could figure out why it didnt have any power. Literally it would start fine but it could barely get up the ramp for my trailer, so i take it there and they say i have a hole in the vaccum hose. I dont know what that is but i think he means the vaccum cylinder or the plastic piece inside the carb bowl. Could that have been what was causing the overheating? Apparently i poked it by mistake or didnt replace it correctly after i re-jetted. Anyways im running the 155 or 160 main jet, i think thats plenty high enough for this altitude and my power mods. What do you all think?
