    Have 1982 FLH with an S & S Carb. Running lean and hot. Can't figure out why.

    Thank you so much for your quick response. Changed spark plugs, readjusted S & S carburator, went for ride, bike run fantastic..... Will try your idea of WD 40 because this perfection has happened before...... may not be permanent still. Will keep you posted.

    Got reply from Glider to try WD 40 to check for air intake leak. Going to try that now. Have had moments before where it ran great too and then right back to square one. Will keep you posted.

    Some simple advice.....do not test for intake leaks with WD 40 when the motor is hot. The stuff can catch on fire. Don't ask me how I know.
