So it seems that nobody has any ideas maybe this will give some help. I pulled off the gas tank just to verify everything connected correctly etc etc. Seemed okay. So just because, I decided to start the bike with just the carb fuel lines hanging there, no gastank, and see what happened. The bike ran just perfectly normal. Idled fine, reved up, no issues. Put the gas tank back on. Back to hard starts and holding the throttle to run. Does this sound like something in the petcock or gastank? The gas tank is full right now with a half can of seafoam.
