I am getting the running on one cylinder now when it gets hot. Peeps seem to be pointing to the Carbs. But this looks like a winter project, or unless it becomes non running anymore. Why they had the engineer complicate everything on this bike is beyond me!

It's a carbureted motorcycle from the 80s. Just be happy it isn't an I4 with 4 carbs! The carbs are the same ones used on many bikes, including Harleys. Not quite over-complicated.

Start with the basics, blowback method, some seafoam in the gas.

Meaning they are a bitch to get out, and joined together at the float bowl like Siamese twins. I did the blowback today after I took it for a ride, and shot some carb cleaner in the drain screw hole. Next ride will tell if it worked. Was idling pretty consistant

while the design of our carbs is common in many other bikes, the actual application is unique. not many others (if any) have siamese carbs like ours.

Almost think it may be best to buy some off Ebay, bench rebuild them, and swap them out.

If anything is wrong, needs a revision, have a suggestion etc., kindly message me the information so I can correct it.

Thank you for this. Cleaning my carbs on my 06 and this is very helpful.

You are correct.
