New to the site, just found yesterday. LOVE IT! Wished I would have found when I was struggling to remove the carbs to clean.
I recently got a 94 750 from my boss. He didn't drive it much at all. It probably sat for a year or so. It ran, but not great. Took carbs out, cleaned, new airfilters, plugs, oil change and she ran great! Been riding it for a while now, probably put on a couple hundred miles.
Just 2 days ago it seems like it's gummed up again. It will fire up, rev up to 4000 RPMs on Full choke, turn choke off to idle then die. When start again, full choke will only bring it up to 1500RPMs. I can keep it running and even drive it but, I'm sure it's running lean or something. With choke on, it also smells very gassy, like it's running rich.
I read a bunch of posts on turning idle screw out (cap on it, how do you get that off), but I don't think thats the problem. I'm sure its the jets. I read a post on taking jets out with out taking carbs out, but that looks next to impossible.
I put in gas probably 3 weeks ago, and still have 1/4 tank (live real close to work). Do you think this has something to do with it (bad gas)?
Can I put in new fresh gas, and hope it cleans it out? Or is there something I can add to the gas to help clean? Or do I need to take those things out again and reclean?
Sorry for the long post, just wanted to get the picture across. Thanks for any advice!
