Re: Carb icing ... The facts.

Quick question: When you are saying "running rough", what does that exactly mean?

Fazer isn't stalling or anything, but as soon as the temperature drops below 6 - 7 degrees, the bike feels a bit different - it's as if someone threw a fistful of gravel into the gearbox or something - Is this carb icing? Bike feels / revvs way smoother when the temperature goes back up around 10 degrees or so. Is this what you lot mean by running rough? Would a drop of this PRO FST magic juice help?

Re: Carb icing ... The facts.

Sorry about your lose Chopper, I can't begin to imagine how hard it would have been.

Thanks about the reply, bike didn't need anything in the end anyway, I probably need some PRO FST for my head though.

A lot of the manufa's copped on to the phenomenon and fixed it with carb heaters, either redirecting coolant through them (like on my ZRX), or electric elements (like on my SV650, see my post on page 1 of this thread, from 2009).
