Nice Bike welcome.

Could DR elaberate on the jetting of the middle carb?
Do you need to richen it up all the way through eg. smaller cutaway bigger needle jet and bigger main, or just up the float level to richen thoughout the rev range?

hi to kbg,panhead pete and sg its not flat black its satin it has a bit of gloss to it and no it has no rego and i have to wait a year to get my full licence to ride it. You used to only cop a $50 fine for no bike licence if you got pulled over but know they take all your licences off you if you get caught so doin 12 months restricted will give me time to play with it a bit

You need to make it rich with the jetsm it will help cool the center piston, same thing on Multy cil jap bikes.

A lot of tridents lost a pistion due to even jeting, now we know that the center hole needs more gas.....
