Pulled the carbs yesterday and cleaned them six ways to Sunday. They really didn't look too bad (shouldn't have, since this was the third cleaning), but I hit every jet with carb cleaner, air dried the carbs, etc., etc. Got everything ready to go tonight and...POOH! Same result - as soon as I touch the throttle, the engine cuts out like it's run out of fuel. I obviously haven't been able to sync the carbs yet, but I'm assuming that that's not the issue (else the engine would start in the first place).
The only other thing I noticed tonight was that when I went to pull the tank back off the bike, the vacuum hose had sucked up a bunch of gas outta the petcock. Which is a sign of...well, something not right in the fuel/air business. Anybody? Anybody?
