Re: How to make a carbie with FCR's start easy in cold weather
Not starter fluid, I just use petrol.
I put luer fittings on (the fittings used for medical infusion pumps, IVs, etc.). [ Parenthetically, I used to work at a medical equip manufacturer, and I used these because they were avalable], though you could do it using stuff from Lowes (tubing and fittings).
In my case, the syringe fit directly into the luer fitting, and I'd squirt a tsp or so of gas in (Same principle as the tickler on a set of Amal carbs from a Brit bike, or using the accelerator pump on a set of delortos from a bevel duc). Once the bike is warm, I'd take the syringe off and put a closed cap on the leur to seal it up, and go ride. Works well, by I'd still get cold.
