fuel/ carb/ dunno problem

Post by AlexH » Fri Sep 26, 2014 8:00 pm

Hiya folks just recently got my carbs cleaned because bike wouldn't rev. Now that the carbs are back on the bike 1) the throttle has gone rather stiff and 2) fuel keeps leaking even tho all hoses are connected. Anyone had a similar issue or experience that might have a solution?

Cheers

seen exactly those issues before following ultrasonic cleaning.

Float valves will need swapping for new as the pins get sticky so float height becomes random and the float bowls overflow.

Stiff throttle is due to lack of lubrication on butterfly valve pivots. Some engine oil will sort it.
