So I customized a gl500. The engine was working when I first got it so I decided I don't need to do anything with the engine. BUT now it isn't running unless I pull the choke. I think that the engine just isn't getting enough gas but iv'e cleaned the carb multiple times and I cant figure out whats wrong. Please Help
BTW I did put pods on the bike and a different exhaust on it

I guess the questions scared him away?
Seen that on other forums, request for help with one post and then nothing but crickets often after meny suggestions of things to look into with minimal info to go on but enough to provide conjecture on a running issue. In this case too little info provided...

My guess is a problem with the petcock so no gas flow.

Running with the choke on may mean not enough fuel but it could also mean too much air. Have you checked for air leaks between the carbs and the heads?
