    suspension travel question

    ok, in addition to my previous questions, whilst removing the carb, i noticed what looks like a second choke (red) marked "pull" would i be right in assuming this is something to do with a hot/cold start? the tube bypasses the carb body and would seem to allow air into the inlet tract.on the rear of said lever is a spigot for some sort of pipe, does this connect to something or simply to air like an overflow pipe? thanks in anticipation andy

    suspension travel question

    hi fella's, i posted on here a while ago as i was thinking about buying a wr 400, i ended up buying it but its stood for at least two years so it has a few minor issues. to be on the safe side, ive ordered a carb rebuild kit cos i think the float needle is worn as it leaks when not running, im in the process of re greasing the shock linkage, one of the bearings has siezed but i have it on soak at the mo so im hoping it comes out! my main question is this, the last owner was a "portly" gentleman 22st! and he wound the coil down to 3/4 of the way down the thread, i have undone it and arbitarily set it at about a 1/4 from the top, can anyone advise me where it should be for a 12 st person! secondly the air reservior is empty, what pressure should this run and as a rough starting point where should the compression damper be at? many thanks for all you answers cheers andy
