my friend put a bbk in at the beginning of may and all was good was doing 43-45mph on flats but now it seems to have lost power top end is around 38mph he just did the valve clearences thinking that might be the cause, they were off slightly but after he did them no power gain. i know he was having issues with the fuel petcock it was dumping fuel into the carb, he installed a fuel shut off, could that be part of the problem with the power maybe not getting enough fuel?

You may be running to RICH especially if its hot out. Heat really makes you lose power, that is why in summer you have to Lean out your Carb and in the winter you have to Richen it up. It all has to do with the Air Density. In the winter or when its cool you will notice that your engine puts out more power. Alleyoop

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
