OK.. sooo… I rebuilt this parts bike (I think that phrase should be up there with ..”Hey watch this”).. I had a trans issue (fixed.. worn spines.. new drive shaft), turn signal issues (fixed.. electronic flasher relay after many hours of searching the wires), several busted bolts.. one of them in the gas tank holding the petcock on!(fixed with JB weld).. battery issues (AGM fixed that right up), Front brake issues(3 days of bleeding and refilling.. PITO).. got it running.. satisfied right!.. NOOOOOO.. I go to start it up this weekend…after running a tank of gas thru it with about a cup of Seafoam to try and clean the system…it cleaned it for sure… almost to well I guess… now I have a leak at the carbs.. well not exactly a leak.. more like gas is pouring out fast than it is being sucked from the tank!.. I swear I am about to insure this bike for 3 times what its worth and maybe drop a lit cig next to it!..I am having a hard time trying to figure out where the leak is.. I do have, on the left side, one of the plungers for the chock off of the cable connection and it looks to be down further than the right side.. as warm as it has been here in Oklahoma I do not need to use the choke so I wasn’t worried about it just yet.
