So I hadn't been able to ride for awhile due to broken turn signals, after replacing them I went out to work and noticed that the bike started sputtering in fifth gear. So I pulled the carbs ( what an adventure the first time!) and cleaned the main jets. Re-installed and same thing so they came back out and I all jets this time to no avail, called in a mechanic who discovered that the main jet holders were slightly bent, so $300 in parts and labor later I'm all excited to get out on the road and now sputtering and a backfire to go with it. It will start and idle with some hesitation and apparent misfiring, oh I did an oil change and new plugs just in case, but when you go to pull off once I let off the clutch and try to apply throttle she chokes out and I have to start her back up.
