Yes to both. I think my carbs aren't sucking enough feul, thats why the engine gets starved. What do you think?

Re: Vacuum Advance on Weber Carb

The slides are inside the round top cap and extend down into the center of each carb.They are air flow controlled and rise to allow more fuel to the cylinder. Thanx V. My carbs are off. I couldn't find any pictures on how to set your floats. All say it must be 21mm from the bottom of your float to ...

Re: Vacuum Advance on Weber Carb

Well there are a lot of could be's.I can only guess at the problem by the description...."It ran up to 8000rpm ok before they fixed it".That pretty much leads me to believe that in repairing the high idle problem,they altered the ability to accelerate past 5000rpm.

Re: Vacuum Advance on Weber Carb

Electronic ignition,electric fuel pump and carbs are the 3 best mods for the 1000.I do prefer the 4 carb setup when set right,but a single is OK too. The reason I want to go for single carb is, I had my bike in for service and I ask them to service the carbs as well. Since it came back, its not run...
