Let me see if this works. I've tried responding several times. I keep getting booted out.
today I took it down again and adjusted the float to make it more full and tightened the PMS
While open I noted, #35 pilot
jet, 165 main
jet. I did a dark room backlight on the diaphragm to double check no tears or holes. I ran a guitar string down every opening and shot carb
cleaner into each hole to see if it came out the correct places. Yes yes and yes. I can not see anything wrong in anyway. Zero restrictions.
It fired up cold second turn and idles great. no choke. BTW
yes I understand its an enricher but its easier and everyone knows what you mean when you say choke. Different principle action, same use. If I try to add choke, it sputters n dies. Starts no choke, stalls with choke.
I pulled a plug and it is black and ever so slightly moist. After only approx. 20 minutes on them. That's rich. No question. But then why is it that when I cover the secondary air jet at the mouth of the carb it gets smooth? Like it's lean. Ive twisted the PMS from 1 to 3 1/3 turns and it doesn't effect anything. If I open all the way nothing, if I close all the way puh puh stall. So then why does it cough big when I manage to get it to slowly build rpm
's upto about 1/4 to 1/3 throttle? It will puff a huge cough, every now and again a little light with it, and puh puh puh stall. Unless I get off the throttle quick enough then it will go back to smooth idle.
I cleaned the heck outa the ol girl. I even bypassed the fuel filter and pump individually and collectively to see if it would work.
Here's another interesting item. When I first ran the bike after sitting for 2 years, it wouldn't start without choke, and I had to rev
it to keep it running. But it was blowing black smoke. So I pulled and ended up replaceing the spark plugs. NOW, I did go cheap on the plugs as I wasn't sure if the carb was going to ever work. I didn't want to spend a bunch on plugs and find that the carb is toast. Is it possible that the plugs just cant burn the mixture? I thought how bad could they be? They are new and are spark plugs for this bike, but I read someone said their bike ran better getting platinum NGK because they ran hotter? These are Advance auto brand $2 plugs. Is it possible brand new plugs are not keeping up? I gapped them to 32-35. I expected them to do the job they need to but would need replaced much sooner, at which time knowing the bike was ok I would drop the money on the plugs.
I WOULD LOVE to have you look this over shamrock!!! I might have to rent a trailer though. So it wouldn't be real soon. I'm in between jobs as they say. It would be great to meet other roadie riders to learn about the bikes and to have other roadie fans to ride with.
I wish I could add pictures! I don't get the 800 limit. My phone takes much larger size than that. I'm not trying to get an editor and edit photos. I'm way to busy for that. Which is odd considering I am not even working.
Thanks for all the responses guys. I'm hoping for a miracle so I can get out on two again!
Oh I forgot its a new manifold too. Not ported. I'm trying to get her back to stock so I can do mods as I desire. The only mod at this point is the holes in the stage one.
