Stuck in a rut......
I have posted my issues here and gotten great help, and like anything else I fix, I find more issues. Here is a list of original symptoms:
Ran rough at idle
Idle speed changing
Intermittently running rough
So, I changed the plugs to NGK's, changed the oil, backflushed the carbs using the method in the verses, changed a bad vaccuum line, removed some crappy inline fuel filters that PO installed, cleaned the gas tank vent line and while I was at it I relocated my R/R. I went on vacation for 3 weeks, dying to get back and ride.
Now, the bike idles great, sounds smooth, no popping on decel, but I have NO POWER in any gear. I have the throttle wide open in every gear and can barely get any acceleration. I have to give it a lot of throttle to keep it running in gear. I have no idea what I could have done to create this problem, but my riding season is oming to a close very soon and I want some time on the bike before winter hits. Any ideas???
