HELP! Barely runs now...carb cleaning on the bike and re-installing airbox questions
I have tried to read all 17 pages of carb threads and as much info as i can digest from the "verses". I could not find this discussed. When I shot carb cleaner into the back carb drain screw opening while stoping remaining part of opening the cleaner backed up all the way up and out of the vent houses and fuel intake line. However nothing came out the drain on the bottom of the carb. when I did the same to the front carb (shot cleaner into the screw opening cleaner ran out of the dran but did not shoot out the vent or fuel intake line. My question: is the drain on the rear carb stopped up? or is the drain on the front carb open and should be plugged?
Also, the PO had removed the "air cleaners" trying to get the bike to run. I have gathered the necessary stock ears, airbox ect. I have plugged the reed valves, put tubing and t on the carb vents to reach the right air box, and put a hose on the crank vent. I think I am ready to try to re install the stock airbox. Question 2: can I put this airbox in with out pulling the engine and my remaining hair out? Give me advise please. thanks. jmczzz
