Surge tank question...
I'm new to the forum, thank you for allowing me to participate. I hope I am not doing anything improper with my first post here.
I'm rebuilding a VN750 - 1996. It a really nice bike.
I have a question about the VN750 surge tank and how it affects the carbs. I cleaned my carbs because I had a float valve sticking open, and I am attempting to reinstall them, but I can't (so far) to get the surge tank hoses connected back to the carbs.
So, before going ahead and connecting the surge hoses, I tried starting the bike without them in place, just to see if the carbs were okay. I found it will not start without starting fluid. Then it starts, but will only keep running at high rpms and it also backfires. It runs really bad.
I welcome any comment or suggestions.
