79 GL 1000 No fuel to #2 Cyl

Postby scdavis67 » Fri Jun 11, 2010 6:30 pm



Durring tune up and synch found no change when adjusting mixture to #2 cyl. Pulled plugs and found a clean #2 plug. All other plugs have burn. Checked spark and is OK. Good plug. No fuel smell so no gas getting to cyl.
Any ideas? What can i check with carbs still on bike?
Thanks

Might unscrew the drain plug on that carb to see if you have fuel in the bowl.

Looks like it's time to pull the carbs out. The inlet screen on that carb could be plugged, the float valve could be stuck or the internal paassge between #4 & #2 could be plugged. Take a look at Randak's website, he has alot of info about these carbs. http://www.randakks.com/TechTips.htm
