Well, in an earier post l talked about the issues with my 1500 running rich and lazy. Went out and bought a kit to do the carb rebuild and with the rain yesterday decided to do the repair. I started to take the thing apart and discovered the issue. The air filter was full of sunflower seeds. Seems some varmint found a really nice winter home...again. One other time they moved in to my trunk when it was stored for the winter. How nice life must have been for him though. Where I store it they feed the birds so there was all kinds of bird seed. Under the cover, up in the bike, eat and sleep in the air cleaner housing. Maybe I can shrink wrap it like they do boats???
