Before I ghost ride my bike into a moving train....
I've owned the bike for 3 days now...
First, it runs rich, real rich. You can smell pretty much raw gas out of the exhaust, sometimes, it even throws it out of the pipes in the form of a mist you can actually see. And the gas mileage is just pathetic.
Starting it takes a little while, even after it's good an warm, and only been shut off for 5 or 10 minutes.
And this is the strangest thing now-
two days ago while parked outside at work, it started leaking gas from the rear carb, a steady drip off the bottom, and it looked like it was oozing out of every port of the carb body. It was squeezing out of the boot, and running down the engine block like a small waterfall. It was loading the engine inside with gas as well. Soon, both carbs seemed to have major drips falling from the bottoms of them....fired the bike up, and got a good spray of fuel out both pipes. I rode it home, and it hasn't done this since. (sat out in the hot sun that day at work, but I thought thats what vents were for)
I just bought this bike. the guy said he had been in the carbs before, told me how hard they were to take off, but said he was just cleaning them, and you can tell by looking at the screwdriver marks all over them, that they've been worked on.
Anyway, can you suggest a specific check, or should I just remove and completely teardown? (the complete teardown was my plan and why I was looking for kits).
