Default Bike running/idling like SHIT

When I start the Kan-O-Tuna, it runs fairly decent...the idle is quite a bit high (2,500-3k) but I can resolve that with adjusting the idle screw, once I get it to running!

I will go out in the mornings, and fire the bike up and let i run on choke for 15-20 seconds, then take the choke off, and "feather" the throttle to keep it running. It'll idle roughly, but then die after a couple of minutes.

HERE IS WHERE THE TROUBLE STARTS...............After the bike dies, IT WILL NOT START AGAIN for 4-5 hours.

I cleaned the carbs, bench-synched them. and now the fucking thing won't run on it's own long enough for me to get it fucking run properly!

I am running a straight header right now, so I know that will affect it a little bit.

Last time I took the carbs off, there was gas and oil in my airbox...(like 8 ounces)

Matt was helping me, but got tied up...any suggestions? Thanks guys!

Tank venting properly?

Why do so many people embrace mediocrity instead of seeking excellence?

Default Re: Bike running/idling like SHIT

To my knowledge. I ave the vent hoses ran over the back of the tank, and the vacuum hose hooked up to the side o carb #4 like it's supposed to be.

Speaking of the tank, when I set it in the "prime" location, it sounds like it is literally flooding the bowls of my carbs with fuel...but of course, I cannot SEE in the bowls, so who knows?

I mean the gas cap. It could be vapor locking.

If it vapor locks than gas can't be delivered to the carbs. So in that 4-5 hour period when the bike wont start, open the gas cap and see if it starts.

Ok, so I went outside....hit the starter (gas cap closed) and the fucker fired right up! Last time I tried was about 45 minutes ago, and it died.

So, I figured while it was running I would take a short jog down the road...it ran good, until I was going up a hill, then bogged down and died. It died 5-6 times on me, but fired up again every time. But would not stay running after the initial "bog" for longer than 10-15 seconds.

Sounds to me like you're running the bowls dry one way or the other. Fuel filter? Pump?
