Serviced my air filter Monday after the long dusty ride on Sunday [70 miles] and pulled a real bonehead!! The wind and dust was blowing so I put a rag in the throat of the carb, serviced the filter and put it on. Tried to move it today and it wouldn't run worth a darn plus the throttle wasn't working right. After thinking about it for a while I remembered the rag...runs fine now.:pullinhair:

Haha I've done this before. Stuffed a paper towel in the intake to keep anything from falling in while I had the filter out. Then put everything back together and forgot the paper towel! Haha makes ya feel dumb doesn't it. No worries happens!

Doubt the rag would make it past the intake valves.....but it would plug stuff up !!

Depends on the size of rag! Paper rows can really screw things up LOL
