well DISASTER struck today, I filled the bike up with fuel, and it was sitting in the sun and started venting out the gas tank, and I wasnt aware this was happening, so after awhile I went outside and noticed all the clear coat / paint was coming off the side of my tank from fuel. BUMMER!!!
So, I was riding it home, when all of a sudden it started bogging down, and fuel was just spraying out the carb
all over my leg / exhaust pipe until it died and came to a stop.
I got it home and finally decided to pull it apart, I havent had much time lately so I havent been able to work on it.
Anyway, after pulling it all apart. I checked all the jets (all clean), needle and float were working properly... and nothing clearly visible wrong.
I am located in morris, IL... The elevation here is about 525 above sea level.... and My bike is a 99 roadstar silverado, 1602
Barons Big Air Kit (BAK
) and pipes... (not 100% sure what kind they are)
Mid 57.5 ( I think... Hard to read)
Air screw was about 2 turns out
No idea what is going on.. the only thing I can see going wrong is the accelerator pump may be leaking a little when you crack the throttle.. This pisses me off because that was one of my original complaints when I took it into the bike shop to be tuned.
Any idea's? I need help and I am really losing faith in my roadie, Im starting to feel like its no longer reliable but I know that is not true. Its still basically new, only 13k miles!
