Another idle question
You guys are probably getting sick of my idle questions. When I bought my bike it had been sitting with California gas in it. I've since overhauled the carbs (sent to the guy in West Virgina) and overhauled the petcock. Both were caked full of pink gummy stuff. After solving an initial intake leak (idle would bounce around, RPMs would pause when declining ) the bike seemed fine. So...
Ride #1 after fixing intake leak. Set idle to 1100 RPM went for ride. Idle stayed dead on 1100 and went to it smartly after reving.
Ride #2 same.
Ride #3 Probably tried to ride bike too soon after starting. Then found idle at 800RPM. Just road with it until reaching full temp, still found idle at 800 RPM consistently at every stop. Readjusted idle to 1100. This was a short ride, just long enough to bring the temp gauge to about the middle.
Ride #4. Started with some back firing them time. Took off choke, started, idled around 2400. After fully warmed up still at 2400. Set idle back to 1100.
Each time the idle is dead on consistent during the ride. I'm just not sure why ride #3 had a low idle. I did try spraying brake cleaner around the boots again but no sign of intake leak.
Could the carbs have somehow been flooded or something on ride #3? Otherwise the bike seems to be running very well.
