Ok so i have a 86 vn750 and ive had it about a year. I rode it for a few months last year and other than a few cooling issues that were resolved, it has ran fine.
Around february this year i noticed gas leaking out of the airbox after sitting in storage all winter. I assumed this was due to a stuck float valve.
The past month i have gone through the bike cleaning, lubing etc....
I had the carbs out, cleaned thoroughly (jets, floats, etc)
I finally got the bike all put back together and it will start right up and idles fine, then start to get a little sputtery as if it is flooding out and it dies.
I noticed that there is gas coming from the air box again......WTF ( its a little oily)
Then i cant get it started back up unless it sits for a while
I checked the plugs (new mind you) and they look a tad on the dark side but not wet or black.
There is suficient vacuum to pull gas from the tank.
Petcock not leaking.
carbs are clean
new battery, spark plugs, fresh gas
and theres no gas out the exhaust
I seriously have no clue where to begin im getting so sick of this bike and if i have to pull the carbs again for a third time im going to set the bike on fire
