Re: 150 tune

Yep, as per the details given in the 60s Performance Tuning & Conversions manual, worked very well... pulling my wife and I to Milan in 97, after the big end went on my 200 motor :(

Exactly the same functionality but do note that the adjustment screw is exactly that, for adjustment. As such don't worry too much about what the book says, adjust to what the motor tells you what it wants in the way of turns. You may find it requires anywhere between 1/2 and 3 full turns out.

You used one word a number of times that says it all, "balance". Yes, you're looking at a number of different elements but the im...
