Bad Luck or Jinxed

badluck13 A sort of curse placed on a person that makes them prey to large numbers of minor misfortunes and other forms of bad luck. Unfortunately I do not believe in the theory of being  jinxed, however I  am a subscriber to the theory of challenges, when building a custom bike. Why am i raising this issue, its because Abdulla believes that the Blitz project is jinxed for the multitude of issues that have surfaced throughout the building of the bike. So whats new?  Problem with my used carburetor bought used off eBAy a couple of month back. After readying the bike for the test drive and rolling it out to the street, it failed to start, even though the previous day there was no signs of  carburation flow. The engine was starved and petrol did not flow to the cylinders, which prompted us to take it apart and clean it. The  Blitz started, however the problem of high idle is still persisting making it a bit uneasy to drive. Furthermore the rear brake light is always lit due to some short in the wiring harness. overall Nothing alarming still a few glitches to iron out, this is expected in any build.
