guy thanks for the help and staying with me on this !!! I didn't know what type or how the choke operated and was afraid that maybe I had fouled a cable or something and was stopping it from going off, well I was able to check it tonite and an was even able to remove it and its defiantly not a choke problem ,,i have a few photos and 2 videos I want yous to see , ill tell yous what I did tonite, I checked the choke thing and was nearly 100% sure it wasn't at fault so I fired her up
this is her running li9ke a new bike
and after a few minuites it started dieing out again well I waited for the hissing noise again and it started , I went as quick as I could and removed the tank to get close to the stacks , the folling video shows the sound coming from both stacks !
well I pulled off the carbs as quick as I could as I wanted to see was there petrol running into the cylinder , ,,,,,
2 of the cylinders are flooded !! well that's proven shes getting plenty of juice anyway lol
anyway I striped down both carbs again (3 or 4th time ) I first removed the slide and then the needle , I had installed 2 washers per slide so I removed one washer and rebuilt each slide (both were striped and rebuilt singly like I did at the install time so I didn't mix anything up )there is nothing wrong that I can see (clean and no tears and everything sitting in its place)
I removed the bowls/needles/floats again still working and look ok , as ther has been a lot of mention of the float needle I took a photo of it , there looks like a line around it where it seats but you cant feel it , (is this the fault?)
well I rebuilt the bowls up again and checked that nothing on the outside of the carbs was fouling (all linkages etc are moving and stopping where they should )
put the carbs back on the bike and fired her up again ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
still the same :-(
turned her off and walked out the door !!!
let me take this all in now :-)
the fault is in both carbs ? yes because its flooding both cylinders ? pretty conclusive
so if it is a float needle it has to be both of them ? yes , seems pretty not likely do yous not think ? the bike was running good before I stripped it down last year , do yous think the carbs laying off didn't do them any good ? I only have a couple of options now ,, I pull out the jets and put her back to standard (btw I forgot to say I removed the 4 jets tonite also and checked they were the rite ones and not way out on sizes etc) I could try this and it will rule out the jets fault , or I order a pair of float needles ! I don't mind doing this at all (just have to wait on them )
