My winter project 7R is coming along nicely. It was purchased after being abandonded in some guys back-yard for a year, & wasn't running when I bought it. Now it's running pretty good, rode it alittle today, did some burn-outs, etc. doesn't seem to want to idle tho.
Any thoughts on why it might not want to hold an idle? On throttle response from idle is good nice and crisp, goes well, but when you release the throttle to idle, it just sort of trails off and stalls.
I've removed and cleaned carbs twice for the heck of it, I removed and cleaned everything, and would say it's pretty damn clean.
Added new plugs, sync'd the carbs and adjusted the air mix screws (w/o airbox.), adj. idle.. At this point everything seemed beautiful. I installed airbox, etc. and next thing it won't quite hold an idle. Removed air box to see if it would improve, but the problem remainded...
thanks & cheers!
