Still not running right
Looking for some ideas 'cause I've about run out! The problem: at constant throttle, usually around 4k rpm, the engine will begin missing. Open the throttle or add choke and it smooths out. Runs good for a while then does it again. Here's what I've done: carbs have been off twice and cleaned thoroughly. Only thing I didn't do was soak the jets but I ran a fine wire through them and I think they're ok. Found the coasting enricher
diaphragm on the rear carb was rotten so its been replaced. Replaced rear carb boot since the original showed signs of damage. Replaced carb vaccuum lines. Lastly, carbs have been synced and are perfect at fast idle. They do show a slight difference with engine running about 4k with bike on center stand and transmission in neutral.
On another note, for online parts ordering Partzilla has great pricing and quick shipping. If you have lots of time, SME Bike has even better pricing. What I didn't realize is SME is in New Zealand so it took over three weeks to get the parts.
If any of you guys can shed some light on what I can do to fix this problem I'd certainly be grateful. I enjoy working on the bike and the local shop gets $96 per hour labor so I'd like to fix it myself.
