    ANY GOOD CARB GUYS in KY, TN, OH, or IN

    Looking for a good carb guy in any of the above states. Preferably in KY or TN close to Lake Cumberland. Rebuilt carbs still have severe bog at times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thx

    Thx guys, had already read that and was wondering if Kerry did mostly motor work or carb work as well. I guess I'll just have to give him a call.

    Well, to update everyone. Received a PM from Dave (thx) that carb bog was prob either too rich/lean or pop off. Well this weekend.. BOOM... from the look of the plugs... too lean i think. After running premix through the first tank, i decided to run 93 premium through the second tank. I ran about 1/2 of that second tank out b/4 I decided to change to the new plugs. Oh yeah, this was a recent rebuild with 1st tank premixed for break-in 2nd tank was no premix (just residue) and I figured that the plugs may foul again if there was still extra oil in the fuel tank. Well, changed the plugs, rode it for about 10/15 mins.. BOOM, motor locked up.. Middle spark plug crushed. other two light brown/orange instead of black. Will attach pics soon.
