'79 GL1000 no power!

Post by clarkekw »

Just put a new after market starter on and now the bike doesn't seem to have any power and pops during idle or downshift. The Idle is a joke. Any suggestions?

A bit of history might help.
replacing the starter has nothing to do directly with how the bike runs.
Did it run perfectly before the starter was changed?
How much time did it set up,not running?

Your description of how it runs indicates an ignition or carb problem.
