Ok, So I got the carbs off and cleaned the heck out of them.. Shimmed the needles(One washer) Cut two loops off the spring(Seemed like I could of took off a few more), Changed the oil(correct amount), Polished the slides, and put it all back together. After I finally got it started it ran well.. Smoked of course, because of all the oil it had to clear out.
Im kinda of back to square one though... It is having a difficult time starting. It will not start on the battery alone. I have to jump it off of my car to start it. The battery alone turns it fine, but doesnt seem to turn it as quickly as a jump does. Even with the jump it is not wanting to start and does so very gradually at 1/4 throttle without choke in about 10 senconds or more. I used to get it started alot easier with choke and 1/4 throttle... Maybe 3 to 5 seconds of turning
This starting issue was the initial problem that night before I over filled it with oil.
The battery is reading 12.4 on the meter pre start and drops to 11.4 with the starter turning. that seems like enough juice to me.
So what is the deal?
Why doesnt it start like most bikes on the first or second revolution?
As I said earlier... I recently added the dynatek.. Isnt that supposed to give more spark to the start? Did it burn out my coils or something?
