    @COOLBOY: they have oil mixed with diesel/kerosene solution in which they dip the air filter .... so no worries as such.
    and regarding carb tuning ... i am also feeling same problem with my bike... and i think its high time now ...and we should just give it a SHOT atleast once... i am going to adjust the carb tomorrow no doubt.
    max would be .... we would screw up ... just like those PBK buggers.... so no big deal.

    Smoker n doper, (lv this id)

    Am also gonna use that article and just tune or mess my carb setting tomorrow. Pbk's do it, we should also try our hands at it.

    I would anyways note the earlier setting so if things go wrong, we can restore.
    You know how to remove spark plugs and check for rich or lean?

    @Coolboy try tuning your carb 2-3 times and you will probably get the best A/F mixture.
    Guys at PBK dont know much about bikes,
    I dont know why they are appointed.

    Carburettor retuned

    As planned, i went out for a short 5-7 kms ride, ripping a little and then started with my job of retuning the carb :

    1. I had already calculated the PBK setting to be on safe side, just turn the AFR - BRASS coloured screw clockwise till your bike stalls and screw stops which should give you the NO OF TURNS required to fully close the screw.

    2. Now turn screw, one turn anti clockwise to provide some fuel and raise the IDLE RPM to 3000 RPM.

    3. Again turn the AFR screw clockwise to give leanest mixture without stalling your engine. If engine stalls, make it a lil rich (anti clockwise) and thumb the starter. Wait for a few secs.

    4. Keep fiddling with AFR screw until IDLE rpm becomes constant. It would become constant at a particular setting, reduce IDLE RPM TO 1500 RPM.

    Dont set at 1100 RPM when engine is hot as when engine goes cold you would face starting issues - 1.5k for a hot engine is good

    PBK set my screw at 2 turns from fully close position

    The setting i got after tuning was 3.15 turns and the bike feels much better and no knocking as yet. Would take the bike out in evening on a desserted road to check for top end.
    Will try checking spar plugs and report back

    If something goes wrong

    Just put the original setting back set by your PBK as noted in STEP 1, however bad you may be you would still tune better than a PBK mechanic , mark my words on it.

    I mean 180 turns - like if right end of your screw is a 3'o clock position, turning it clockwise till it reaches 9'o clock position.

    Dont have any other ways to explain

    How can we forget you? The thieves are after you... oops your bike every now and then. Please do some appropriate arrangements now for your Black 220 and CONGRATS on it.

    I know your bike got stolen, recovered and again got stolen. Keep the bike safe and see if you can come tomorrow to Delhi G2G, would be nice.
