Not meaning to hyjack the thread but I have my heater unplugged. Can I use that wire to hook-up a 250w amp to play tunes? I don't remember the fuse size. Can it handle the wattage? I am electrically challenged so any help would be good.

I don't think so. The heater is very low wattage. Also the wire at the carb is not powered when the temp gets to about 74 degrees and then doesn't come back on again till the temp drops to about 53 degrees.

IMHO it's best to leave the heater plugged in. The CV type carb can ice very easily as seen in this video.

It takes a little bit before the bike gets to moving but you'll see the ice start to build.

Here's the second one the guy did where the icing gets even worse.

Hi everyone, I am from central mexico so here the weather is not very cold, is necesary to get plugged the heather connections? I mean, this could make a carb puking? Down here the weather is 90ļF average, so I guess is not totally necesary the heather... Thanx friends!

Sal, I would imagine that its dry, as well as 90 degrees. I wouldn't think you'd have to worry about it.
