Iam running a gilardoni kit on an e50 i have about 200 miles on the bike since the rebuild. I noticed it was running rich so i took off the filter and it was soaked in premix. I was under the impression that the reeds act like a check valve.
With the filter off, the bike ran better but still feels rich, I couldn't get the temp past 320f. is there always some blowback even with reed valves? These are the steel reeds that came with the kit. Could the reeds have worn out already? The spark plug seems like a could handle a tad leaner condition but iam not sure.
