I have an 01 with flatslides and the G2 intake swap. The bike doesn't
start unless I have almost full throttle and then back it off a bit once it
does start. Won't stay running unless I hold the throttle open either. My
trouble shooting so far has been to check the plugs, drain the bowls, new gas >>> adjusted the idle high, and just a general cleaning of the carbs. All
to no avail. Battery is charged also. With the tank up while starting it
seems like there is a lot of fuel kind of "misting" from the carbs. Also a slight smell of oil? Any ideas???
I am assuming that there are not any misassembled parts in the carbs or wrong cam timing and or carb jetting.
Check to make sure the orings are not damaged on the intake boots.
Check to make sure both carbs are fully seated in the intake boots.
Check to make sure the intake spicot on the flat slides is tight.
Make sure the air bleeds on the back of the carbs are clean (they look like little jets)
Visually check the carb sync by rolling on the throttle.
Check for a damaged or dirty inlet needle and seat.
Check the float level, Sudco can tell you what your baseline setting should be.
If you can not find anything wrong with the carbs I would look at your cam timing.
Did you remember to rotated the crank counter clock wise 360 degrees before moving on to the rear cylinder?
Did you move your old intake cams to the exhaust side? That requires adjustable cam sprockets and an exercise in degreeing them in.
