parked bike in one of those "bike sheds" , the type that fold back like a pram , about 10pm last night

11.00 am , got bike out , noticed a shiny gooy hase on top of crank cases , tried to start her , but throttle will not rotate

anyone got any ideas what the fault is ?

I would think the reason the carb has iced as such is because you have rode the bike and obviously the engine and exhaust will be hot . You then put the bike in a tent which will hold in any moisture and heat inside and the carb will attract that moisture and cause the icing . If the bike had stood in a bigger surrounding it potentially wouldn't have iced so bad . My take on it :thumbup:

Carb icing (look it up) caused by evaporative fuel drawing off heat from the aluminium because the engine was still hot when (so causing heat to cause the fuel in the carb to evaporate) you put it away and thus any water in the air will condense on the super cooled ali.

Or a bit of lagging to protect the carb when you stop :thumbup:

she ran like an asthmatic donkey with hiccups , this morning

rode her till float bowl empty , then turned fuel back on , quick trip to halfraude for some gt85 , all is good again

the shed thing is one of those

guy up road was moving , so I accepted his offer at £40 , saves f!$%in abound with wet bike covers in the dark (burnt bike covers from hot exhaust )

Quick and dirty trick to stop this happening is to get some copper pipe, anneal it, flatten it, anneal it again and then wedge it carefully in between the cylinder head/barrel fins and wrap it round the inlet stub.use a hose clamp to hold it tight to stub

that would be like a water heated manifold on a car , and would help in warming the manifold and the carb up , however how can the bike start , and give heat out if the carb is frozen ?

A gallon of petrol and a match would solve it too.:smirk:
