the other day after i rebuilt my front forks i installed them on my 81 gl. i put them in as high as i possibly could and the bike sat like a chopper since i have a 4" drop in the rear. the bike ran like crap. after a little looking it looks like the motor is at an angle leaning back. my question is, is that what caused the motor to not run? is that leaned back angle keeping mixed air/fuel into the combustion chamber? did the oil slosh away from the pressure sensor? what is the maximum angle the motor can sit at and still run properly? i noticed the oil pressure light stays on now but that may be wiring related and the carbs are not tuned so it may be a little lean but it ran better after i lowered the forks and leveled the motor. it may be coincidence.
