That's what I'm thinking. I bet you can varnish your deck with that stuff!

Thank you bob - took the bike down to a local dealership {new) and they thot I was crazy worrying about it and that no two engines sound alike - yeah tell me about it.

Will take your advice and drain and clean - hope not to put floats out of balance.

Florida sound a little like home but as a working stiff - can only hope to ride down one day - am in Ohio

Asante sana (thank you Kiswahili)

King Bob well, if it doesnt run well at idle, you PROBABLY need to clean out the carburetors. yeah, this part of the world isnt necessarily a warm climate year round, unless you're in FL, then the coldest you see is 30something degrees.

an african boy in the US - i have just bought a kat (chui = cheetah) just as winter sets in. Man does it get cold in this part of the world.

It is an 04 600F with 400 - yes 400 miles on the clock. Idles a little rough but is really sweet after 2500rpm - is this normal. Used to ride a GS1000 back home and that felt really smooth with not as much pep.

Is there a summer out there?
