Carb tuning/balancing.
« on: November 02, 2017, 03:22:24 PM »
If anyone can point me in the direction for help re above I would be very grateful.
I have had tank and carbs stripped and cleaned plus set up by supposed pro. One day not bad the next rough. Down I think to running too rich but definitely need some 'experienced' help to set up so engine runs somewhere near as it should. ?????

Hi, firstly check all three choke cables and the splitter, ensuring both enrichment pistons snap shut properly with completely slack cables. Then we can go from there, one step at a time I reckon....
