I wanna ride, HELP please please
So I just recently bought an '86 750, it has 27,000km on it and looks good. Thats where the good stops, lol. My problem is the front (and possibly rear to a lesser extent) cylinder is flooding and I mean like completely full with gas. I bought it not running because of a bad stator.
Here's a run down on what I've done:
Replaced the stator with a high output one
Replaced the plugs
Pulled the carbs and sprayed carb cleaner in everywhere, never actually removed the floats or jets
With the carbs pulled and blowing in the fuel lines, then rotating the carbs the float needles appear to seat as I can't blow air through.
Pulled the plugs and cranked it over to expel the gas and then started her up and went for a spin around the block, it seems to pull "choppy" with power then lack of then picks up again. Turned the petcock to prime and seems a little better but after parking for ten min or so (petcock still on prime) I get gas leaking from all around/over the carbs. And with the petcock left on run the cylinder will be full of gas after maybe 30 min.
Pulled the vacuum line off the petcock and it "closes" when you suck on it. (Damn I suck/blow on any other part of this and I'm have to start makin it pay $$)
When it first happened (cylinder full of gas) it started for a min, leaked gas out of the surge tank, and then died. The oil was loaded with gas and was promptly changed.
Idles low now, havent messed with the idle screw.
Sometimes will hold at 3-4k when throttle closed.
Will sometimes idle low and start dipping then stall.
Seems to run good around 5-7k.
Can be fussy when trying to start.
I'm at a loss, advice or info is GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Mak
