Just finished the Ear shave, looks freaking amazing. Bike starts up good, just got a new Glass Mat battery, now I want to sync the carbs. I build a manometer, not according to the versus but to this website instead:
Looks good, easy enough to build. I tried it once, and the Rear cylinder carb sucked all the water through like a straw. Obviously they are way off.
I didn't have enough time to adjust them yet, but they are set to 2.5 turns on each side. Anyone have some advice to keep that from happening this next time?
Also, it takes a few seconds to decelerate at an idle. Obviously it's because I didn't connect the decel cable, but I don't understand why it's even necessary. The throttle snaps closed as soon as I let it go. Can someone explain this to me?
Last thing, I promise. While doing the ear shave, I deleted some emissions crap, and left some hoses unplugged, and it doesn't seem to change a thing. Firstly, the Red and Blue ports on the gas tank are just unplugged now, is that ok, plugging them in while running seems to have no change. And on the T shaped splitter, I left one of the vacuum lines open. I attached a hose to it and fed it to be accessible outside the bike, so I could play with it. Plugging that with my thumb makes the bike idle higher and die on acceleration.
Whew, sorry for the long post. I can take pictures if necessary.
