Fast idle after Earshave
I bought a basket case/fixer/parts bike. I did the Earshave/Coastered before I ever got it running (previous owner's mechanic told me it had a bad stator after 50k miles, which I replaced) once I got it running it has been idling high, about 2k-3k, I don't know exactly because the tach needle doesn't move with the RPMs (tach is the next Gremlin after fast idle). I rejetted with the appropriate jets per this forum.
I sprayed starter fluid around the boots to see if there was a leak there. The engine immediately dropped RPMs, which doesn't make sense to me. If there was a leak shouldn't the engine rev higher. I sprayed both boots with the same response, the engine started to bog. Just for S and G, I sprayed towards my K&N air pods, also bogged the engine.
If a vacuum leak is the culprit to fast idle wouldn't it surge when I sprayed starter fluid on it.
I have open and cleaned with contact cleaner, every connection and ground. The carb boots had no cracks that I could see. I tightened all four of the boot clamps.
I have the front air mix screw at 3 turns out and the back at 2 1/2. I had them both at 2.5 initially, but the front plugs looked whitish. Now they both look amber.
Anyone have a clue to what might be the problem with the idle?
