carb stall

Postby mover488 » Sun Jun 07, 2015 8:53 pm



I have a 96 aspey. Ok please don't crenge.
I got a set of carbs from the bone yard and they match. Cleaned them up inside and out. Put them on and start the bike I have no top end as a matter of fact. When the starter idle go in touch the gas bike dies. I am out of ideas.
Please give me your thoughts. Or if you have lived this nightmare. I would love to get out.

Sounds like a vacuum leak perhaps. Where are the pilot screw set? Is the accelerator pump working?

Is this the same problem you had with the original carbs.?
It starts right up and idles but twist the throttle a bit and it dies..Correct?
