79 CARB PROBLEMS NEW CARB PROBLEMS

Postby IVGOT2WINGS » Sun Jun 29, 2014 2:50 pm



I posted last week about idle problems with my carbs, a friend had a set of carbs that were rebuilt in 2012 by Pistol Pete he used them for awhile so I checked the bowls and cleaned them up. There was a bunch of crap in trhere and so I did a real good job cleaning jets and all that jazz. My problem now is the bike starts races up around 4000 RPM for 3 or 4 mins starts to back down and stalls I'm looseing it people any body got any suggestions that will help me get back on this bike !!!!!

Have you synched the carbs to your bike?

No but I would'nt think that the bike would race then stall if that were the case, amI wrong? They fire well sound even just races up then stalls in like two three mins!

Have you checked your floats? Fuel pump? Maybe fuel filter? Sounds like it is using up the fuel in the bowls, then dying.

That could be a vacuum leak. If you spray starting fluid, WD-40, etc. in and around the carb area, does it rev up?
