carb question

Post by walker70 » Tue Jan 01, 2019 10:15 pm



Hi,just got thru sticking another set of carbs on my bike but I am going to have to pull them again cause one of the float bowls is leaking,could this be why I could not get them synced up,three of them will but the one leaking fuel will not,thanks.

Hi again,got the fuel leak fixed but still can't get a vacuum reading on that carb so I am going to swap that one since I have spares and see if that will fix the problem. :D

Are you sure you have decent compression in that cylinder? A compression tester is nice, but holding your finger over the spark plug hole and comparing it to the one next to it would be easier than switching the carbs. Also check spark? Swap the spark plug to another hole and see if it follows the plug.
