Ear shaved, carbs acting wierd now.
Ok, so I did the ear shave last week while I was waiting for my final drive to arrive. I got out on it yesterday after getting the FD installed and the bike would flat line at around 4-5K RPMs.
Took some time today to look things over. Needed to remove carbs again due to rear jug boot not aligned correctly. Fixed that. My only concern after reinstall is that the rear carb does not want to seat as deeply into the boot as the front carb does. I pulled pilot jet covers off the top of carbs, reseated diaphragm and put them back together. Noticed better sucking sound from plunger. Took it out again and it did climb through the RPM ranges completely, just not very fast.
So, I've been spraying carb cleaner around various areas of the carbs and seems no matter where I spray, it bogs the engine down. I dunno if the spray is altering the air going into the intake or if the spray is getting into the cylinders. I can do it on both carbs and achieve the same results.
Really, the bike doesn't feel much different than when I still had the ears on, aside from the lack of proper acceleration. I do notice decal popping coming from front jug exhaust, even though I have reed valves blocked. I can smell gas from rear exhaust, but the front does not have a gassy smell at idle. Prolly need to mess with A/F screws a bit.
So, what's going here? I'm stumped. Thanks!
I only understand what I don't understand.
