Vacuum line Petcock
Hi from downunder. Bought a 1986 VN two weeks go, stumbled on this forum and have made a few mods to my bike already( de-goat, tune, battery ect.) Bike was only released in Australia for one year (1986) so parts and info are very hard to come by.
The vacuum hose from the petcock to the left carb was split so I replaced it. I then noticed that the brass nipple on the right carb had been blocked off. I bought some more hose and a t piece and joined both to the petcock.
Have I done the right thing here or should I have left it blocked off, or not connected it to the petcock as well? I am having a lot of popping in the right hand side exhaust only. I have tried the mixture at various settings from 1.5 turns to 3.5 turns and nothing seems to make any difference.
I think I have some issues with that carb but I will track it down eventually. So I guess my question really is have I done the right thing by connecting both vacume lines to the petcock.
One more thing, I believe that these bikes were released here with no emission gear. No reed valves ect because I have nice crome covers where they should be.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
