    This is why I wouldn't buy a Mk4, they're simple enough for even bears to figure out.

    Looks like the bear's diarrhorrea is contagious judging by the previous posts.

    From vortex, but very old.

    Carburettor Theory

    Ever wonder?
    (Stolen from Sport-Touring.net):

    Basics of Motorcycle Carburetor Operation

    The basic secret of carb function is that inside each carb are thousands of tiny gnomes; each with a small bucket. As you open the
    throttle, more of these gnomes are allowed out of their house and into the float bowl, where they fill the buckets and climb up the carb's passages to the intake, where they empty their buckets into the air stream.


    But, if you don't ride the bike for a while, bad things can happen.
    Tiny bats take up residence in the chambers of the carb, and before
    long the passages are plugged up with guano. This creates a gnome
    traffic jam, and so not enough bucketfuls of fuel can get to the
    engine. If it gets bad enough, the gnomes simply give up and go take a nap. The engine won't run at all at this point. Sometimes you'll hhave a single dedicated gnome still on the job, which is why the bike
    will occasionally fire as the gnome tosses his lone bucket load down
    the intake.


    There has been some research into using tiny dwarves in modern carbs. The advantage is that unlike gnomes, dwarves are miners and can often re-open a clogged passage. Unfortunately, dwarves have a natural fear of earthquakes, as any miner should. In recent tests, the engine vibrations caused the dwarves to evacuate the Harley Davidson test vehicle and make a beeline for the nearest BMW dealership. Sadly, BMW's are fuel injected and so the poor dwarves met an unfortunate end in the rollers of a Bosch fuel pump.


    Other carb problems can also occur. If the level of fuel in the float bowl rises too high, it will wipe out the poorer gnome housing in the lower parts of the carb. The more affluent gnomes build their homes in the diaphragm chamber, and so are unaffected. This is why the bike is said to be "running rich".


    If the fuel bowl level drops, then the gnomes have to walk farther to
    get a bucketful of fuel. This means less fuel gets to the engine.
    Because the gnomes get quite a workout from this additional distance,
    this condition is known as "running lean".


    The use of the device known only as the 'choke' has finally been
    banned by PETG (People for the Ethical Treatment of Gnomes) and
    replaced by a new carb circuit that simply allows more gnomes to carry
    fuel at once when the engine needs to start or warm up. In the
    interests of decorum, I prefer not to explain how the 'choke'
    operated. You would rather not know anyway.


    So, that's how a carburetor works. You may wish to join us here next
    week for basics of electricity, or "How your bike creates cold fusion
    inside the stator, and why the government doesn't want you to know
    about it."
