ok, i need help! please list ALL the things that i should check for if i am experiencing the following...i would very much appreciate it, cuz this is frustrating the hell out of me!!! please bear with me in explaining the following long story....
all my probs started when i accidentally left my petcock in the OFF position (i have a 95 ZX600C and i have OFF, ON, and RES). it eventually stalled after riding for about 20 mins. i tried starting it but couldn't...only way it started up again was if i had the throttle open. as soon as i closed the throttle, it woud stall. from what bk and modern guessed, they figure that with the engine sucking the carbs dry, i might have gotten some crap blocking the usual fuel route.
so i take my carbs off, cleaned it, soaked it, blew air through all the little passages...i put it back on and i'm right back where i started. i tried starting the bike (i realized that it takes time for the carbs to fill up with fuel again, but i tried a lot of times, so carbs were filled for sure) and it sounds like it's always right on the verge of running. it will only start if i have the throttle open...i rode it around thinking that that might help...i had to keep the throttle open the whole time or else it stalled. after 15 mins of riding, came back home, closed the throttle, and it stalled. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
please let me know ALL the problems that i could have, after reading this. i missed out on a perfectly good riding day cuz of this!!! HELPPPPPP!!!
