Irratic idle with accelerator pumps net working

Post by Dairyguy »



I have a 2000 Goldwing 1500 that I just purchased and it has been sitting for five years. I brought it home drain the fuel cleaned out the gas tank put fuel in with fuel treatment started it up last night it was barely running. This morning started it up again and although hard to keep running I could get it to run between 2000 and 3000 RPM surging really bad running it at 1/2 choke, by mid morning the fuel treatment must been working as it runs much better w/no choke. Right now it surges while idling and I noticed that the accelerator pump is not working. Seeing it’s not getting any better I’m looking for suggestions. Is it time to pull the carburetor and rebuild it or should I try something else? Much appreciated for any and all help.
