engine swap saga...continued

In other threads I posted I had a swap done by a shop and the bike was running poorly, they had chopped up the airbox, and pretty sure didn't connect up all the evap stuff correctly, etc...

ok so today I went through all the vacuum lines, removed both evap valves and removed the pair system, and I capped everything off except for the carb vent hoses.

I wonder is it possible that the bike was jetted to run with the vacuum leak I may have had and so now it is too rich?

I had a hard time getting it to start, and once it was started and running (sounded better than before at idle) when I tried to rev it over 3000 or engage the clutch and roll on enough throttle to move it would just die...

Progress...not really, since I went from a shitty running bike with a massive flat spot to a bike that I can't ride anywhere

(for the pair thing I followed the forum guide and flipped the reeds, then removed the hoses and the pair valve itself)

I wish...but I have the hoses marked so I never mix them up (after learning about PVLIR the hard way one time).

So you're back to carbuerators then. Pull the carbs, disassemble, clean, inspect, document and reassemble.

yes I need to find a good place to order some jets and I can use the carb setup thread as a baseline

If you have a carb problem let me know, I'm pretty sure I can help you get them sorted.

You can either ask here or shoot me a PM and I'll send you my # if that would be easier for you
