    How much leaner did my cylinder get w/o an F/A on it?

    I FINALLY got to run my GPR today. This is my second GPR and the second GPR I have modified one to run 70 mph. Not much of an accomplishment by today's standards but I don't want to wrench all the time anymore, either.

    After 5-6 speed runs, I trailered it and went home and discovered my #3 carb Riva (K and N) Flame arrestor fell off. I removed my pipe and discovered the adaptor mount fell off with it and #1 and #2 were coming loose. DOH! I didn't threadlock the screws and I didn't put a thin layer of ultra black on the adaptor mounts this time before tightening on the flame arrestors. I don't know WHEN the #3 fell off. Could have been first run could have been the last run. Otherwise I did a lot of idling and running at 30-40 mph.
    I don't how much extra air got in there, but I am glad I didn't go subbing today, either.

    i dont think you ran it with out the f/a long enough,
    cause last time i replaced the accelerator pump on my bro's gpr i didnt put back the air box and it ran lean it took out a cylinder in less than 20 min of riding

    you wouldn't run to lean like an air leak because the filters are above that carb as are the adapters
    but your lucky you didn't sub lol
