Buttoned up

So I got everything put back together, ready to go for a test ride.

Put my gear on, start it up, let it warm up while I check everywhere for leaks, everything's good, jump on, click into first, and pull away. I'm thinking "Awwwwwww yea! Nailed it!"

But then I give it a bit more throttle and the whole thing bogs out and dies. I'm scared now. What'd I break, or what did I forget to put back?

Broke nothing, but I did forget to turn the fuel valve on. :D Bike runs like a dream!

Now might be a good time for a wash.
