    • My ‘07 choke stays out and it must stay out until it is time to push it back in after a brief engine warm up.   As mentioned before, previous owner must have done something with the adjustment.

      This weekends project was the fuel tank. At first I wasn't going to do anything with it because is looked pretty good, only a few scratches. But once I had it installed it looked a little worse than when it was out on it's own. So I sanded down the tank and sprayed on some old satin black paint I had leftover from another project. Not the gloss black as before, but it turned out real nice. Here is a before and after pic.

      Your attention and dedication to detail makes all the difference.  Very nice work.  I also like seeing you’re using some common man tools and not everything high end.

    • Since you say clean the carbs, I am hoping you set the idle screws and also balanced the carbs after the cleaning. If not I would do that also.  Yes it could be a float level off but if that was the case I wouldnt  think the cylinder would fire with the enrichment activated as I believe it gets the fuel from the float bowl. When you rev up the engine, does it seem to be firing then on all 4 cylinders? You could also pull off the air cleaner lid and observe the 4 plungers and see if they are all moving at idle or at a slight rev up. The bike wont run proper above 3K rpm with the lid off so it wont work to leave it off to ride it.

      Good luck and lets us know how it goes..
