So the bike continues to run bad. A buddy suggested I sync the carbs again..... so I synced the carbs closer than any human has ever on a VN750.
It acts as if it's running out of gas, but then picks back up.... sometimes it dies. Plenty of gas and the cap is open so it's not phantom out of gas syndrome. I adjusted the floats and checked them no less than six times before I put the carbs back together. THen I checked the fuel level in the bowls with the little clear fuel line trick. It's ok.
Then I had a thought. Thanks to someone on here (gotta look up their name) I had installed two clear fuel filters. Hmmm, so grab the flashlight... with the engine running strong I see nothing. Then I saw the fuel level steady drop in the filters. As soon as it got below the filter into the line it sputtered and died.
I'm pulling the tank for the 30th time. I guess I;ll pull the petcock and check the filter screen for debris.
