Still having carb issues
When I bought my bike a several months ago it had been sitting with California gas in it. I had the carbs cleaned out after having some issues. I should have done it myself but it was a momentary bit of laziness for which I'll regret. They reported that they found lots of goey gunk in them. I asked them if they cleaned the tank and they just said they drained it down and it looked clear. The bike ran ok for a bit. Then the idle started varying wildly. Sometimes I'd come to a stop and it would idle at 2000 RPMs, sometimes 1500, 800, 300. Sometimes it will only idle with throttle left in. Sometimes I could pull the front plugs and it wouldn't make any difference, sometimes the rear would not. The carbs seemed to come and go. I've been running seafoam through the system for about the last 50 miles. At times everything clears up and it great, then it will no longer idle. At one point I thought a couple long rides with seafoam had cleared them up. Then the next day it was worse. Also, my choke has been odd since the overhaul. I can start it with the choke on but I can never advance the throttle, even after warming up. I have to kill the engine and restart it, then it runs great (not even touching the choke or throttle, just stop and restart).
So I'm thinking I need to redo the carb overhaul and clean out the tank. I'm going to use carbworx.com to do the overhaul. (I'll mail them to them).
However, before doing that is there anything else I should do? I've heard some people say to drain the float and see if that clears stuff up. I've read about people pulling injectors with the carbs still on and cleaning them. Is any of this worth the time???
