Professionally cleaned carbs...still runs bad!
So I sent my carbs (not on the bike) out to be cleaned, the float needle wasnt sealing and she would leak gas all over and flood out a cylinder (it took a month!) I got them back last week, put them back on and started her up. The problem no longer exists. I rebuilt the petcock, cleaned out the tank and tried to synch the carbs by sound (no manometer). I have her idling (by sound) better than she ever did in the 8 years we have been together. BUT, she runs like crap on the road unless I rev her waaaay up there. So at 85 MPH she feels smooth and sounds great, but from past idle till 6000 RPM she feels like a slug. She is de-goated, and has HD Dyna pipes....but she ran great with those mods for quite some time before the carbs got gummed up.
Does this just sound like a typical synch problem that could be fixed with the proper synch tools (manometer etc)
did I get back a dirty carb? I havent had a real ride since May and I am going freakin NUTS!!!!!
I have an appt with the shop on thursday after work for an inspection and a synch... should I keep the appointment?
Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes!
