Missing ear, will it run right?
Hello all, i bought my bike after the PO laid it down (thats how i got it so cheap), and the right side ear was smashed in roughly a million pieces lol. Im trying to get it running right, i just went and ordered a new pilot jet for it, the old one was clogged solid with something very hard, it wouldnt come out after soaking it for 2 days. I cleaned and inspected the carbs while they were out, so i know thats good. The carbs are still out, waiting on the jet from the stealership. I did have it running before i pulled the carbs so i know it runs. I am just curious if missing the ear will cause a big issue with the air/fuel ratio that it wont idle or run right? I wont be riding it do to the weather here, but i would like to get it running and idling good before i start dumping a bunch of money into it. Thanks for all the help, and sorry its so long.
