Re: Running on 1 cylinder

When I was experimenting with needle height with my factory jet kit needles, I had one pop (fly) off during one of the installations so I can see that happening.

I'm not advising to do this but I'd personally probably try to make one with a dremel and a very, very small washer until I could get a real one somewhere.

Re: Running on 1 cylinder

Check your petcock hoses. Sounds like one of the tubes is kinked/plugged.

I have seen this happen to other motorcycles and its normaly related to the petcock.

In the superhawk the petcock is fead by vacuum lines. A plugged vent line will produce this same symptom.

Also you may want to check your plug and see that 1 the coil is working and 2 the plug is firing.
