Ok, this is a bit of a long post. But I have two problems, and here is what I have done in terms of mods and purchases:
The ear shave (rejetted, and shimmed the needle). New AGM battery, and new iridium plugs. Deleted emissions stuff, plugged red/right side hose on gas tank, blue/left side is open to breathe. I have also done the pickup coil mod.
The problem is that the bike will idle when cold, and rev up well. But once it warms up, it will stumble to get to 2k rpm, and even dies at idle! If I rev slowly past 2k, it can rev up no problems. Sounds like a clogged jet, but wait, there's more! This only happens after it's warmed up.
After reading a few posts around here, I am led to believe it's the carb vent hose, which I don't think I placed in a proper position. After an ear shave, where is the best spot to put it? I'm still waiting for the breather filters in the mail.
The rear cylinder is not firing. I checked for spark on both of the plugs, they for sure have spark. But the plugs are not wet at all, and pulling both plugs with the bike running makes absolutely no change. Have not yet checked compression. Anything else I can check before I check compression?
I guess because I have been starting it so much, the battery quickly dies, and I have to recharge it. That shouldn't happen, right?
(Back to breather filters. One filter goes to the crankcase vent, and the other to the carb Tee vent, yes?)
Sorry for the long post, and thanks!
