hey ive got one cyl not firing when i am idling. ive never removed the motor, but could it be a timing problem, when i unseized the engine by turning it from the crank shaft access hole in the front of the engine?
More than likely you have a plugged low idle jet in that carb. The jet is under the rubber plug in the center. Clean it out with a .018" drill bit like illustrated in the cutaway picture.
The other possibility is the inside of the plug caps. If there is corrosion in there they won't deliver all the spark needed to fire at lower RPM's. Plug cap repair.
Shorty,yeah ive never cleaned thous i'll give them a good scrub down. i have cleaned the carbs several times in the past 2 months so im really certain its not carb related.
i think it is carb related....can you elaberate how you scrub your carbs....the process and how long it takes?yeah ive never cleaned thous i'll give them a good scrub down. i have cleaned the carbs several times in the past 2 months so im really certain its not carb related.
just read all the posts in your thread.with carb and brake cleaner, i take it down to every piece. except of course the pieces that need taken out by reverse drill bits. i clean them till the crust and grime is off. the strange thing is that i have had 2 sets of carbs in this bike and the problem is very similar, almost identical. both carbs had problems on the right carb and it was the same no idle at low rpm problem that persisted. its strange isnt it. might be coincidence but it might not.
PODS?........about a day. my problem cyl was black. but i bet thats because of my pod filters (removed them last week), i cleaned it really well and another improvement happened, the delay on throttle pickup had reduced. the thing that bothers me is that when i let off of the throttle it takes a 1-2 second delay to return to its idle.
mmm,does the cdi only work on one pot,and then piss off the other,i doubt iti was thinking and could all these delays be a tired cdi?
