    My chief overfills the reserve tank with oil. There must be a small seep at the top idk. What I am saying is that oil will cause it to misfire without fouling the plugs.

    I like my right hand throttle because when I am starting it. The left hand throttles the engine wants to run off. It is easier to idle the bike down with the throttle on the right.
