Sorry for taking so long to reSpond to this. So busy with the new baby lately. (ten months old and Mom just went back to work)
After a thorough cleaning of the carbs and replacing he spark plug wires and boots, she started up perfectly.
Actually, I had a lot of trouble starting the bike. I had put 4 litres of gas in the tank with an ounce or so of seafoam, and it would not start. It turned out I needed to set the petcock to reserve as anything less than 4 liters won't make it to the carbs.
She started up
Beautifully... Let it idle for a bit, adjusted the idle settings so she would idle at around 1100 rpm with choke off.
After a BBQ dinner decided to I back out to the gargage with my cousin and see if the bike would start without even putting the choke on......
Started first turn over without any hesitation. Since I don't have my licence yet, I had my cousin take it for a spin(he's ridden this bike before I got it) be told me it had never run better. I'm so grateful for this forum and all the great help and inspiration found here.
Thanks everyone. Getting my license in the next month, and takin this baby for a spin.
