Vacuum line issue

Post by aingeal89c » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:46 pm

This is driving me nuts. The previous owner of my bike cut the vacuum line. I can't find a decent diagram on how it's supposed to be routed. Does anyone have a picture?

No picture...but the one in my mind.
At the back side of #3 carb(right rear) there is a small port that connects to the vacuum advance canister.
Keep in does not have a vacuum at idle and should pull up to 7'' of vacuum when reved up.

Need to know which line is cut. Picture from you would help.
