Default Help with KM

Ive had my KM trophy for a couple of days now but i just cant seem to get it to smoke properly!
Im using a generic chinese phunnel with cococha coals. Same set up as my previous shisha but im just not getting any flavour out of the KM. It smokes 'decent' not a KM should, but my main concern is there is no flavour at all.
Ive used the same flavour (Al Fakher DA) and 3 half cococha coals (RED) for both shishas and its perfect on my 22" egyptian but not on the KM.
Also the KM takes MUCH longer to start up. for like 10 minutes there is hardly ANY smoke but stil gives me this horrible feeling at the back of my throat. After that it goes but no flavour.

You should thoroughly clean your KM before you smoke it for the first time. They come shipped covered in grease internally. Not sure if this in intentional or not, but it won't taste right til u clean it; probably not very healthy to smoke until it is cleaned as well.

+1 i had to clean mine for at least 1 hour before i got everything out of it, give it a proper clean, espically the hose port area, sacrifies your stem brush and stick it in they to give it a really good clean

damn no taste with AF DA im outtta ideas, u tried lemon juice and baking soda mix for the clean.

Mayb you just gotta smoke a few bowls

And see if the phunnel is tight as i have a lot of problems getting the phunnel tight on the KM

Is the other seals tight as well?

did you clean the purge value, not sure how it would make a difference but it might

ive cleaned everythin. even if ther is a little leak there should stil be a little flavour.
i tried usin a homemade scalli mod with a candle base. u think its that? otherwise the foil gets stuck al d time.
At the moment the KM is very disappointing and im not happy

i think thats the problem the home made scalli, i made that and it made the shisha taste like metal(it was blue mist) i personally dont think they are safe

Use some tape under the rim of the bowl so it dont get stuck after you put foil round it,tape under where the rim is and it wont get stuck

Will and il send it to you

You use the mod so the foil dont get sucked in the middle, so after you put the foil on get some cellotape and go round the bowl under the rim and make sure the foil is tight
