Question about 2001 Laverda Lynx 650
But somehow never managed to. So now I am trying to sell the thing and I can't get it to run. It ran like a champ before it sat. If it sits for a while it will run for 30 seconds or so and then sputter and die. Then it won't start for a while but turns over strong. I figure it has to be a fuel issue. I put some fuel stabilizer and cleaner into the tank; no dice. I pulled the tank, drained it, put new fuel in it, pulled the carb, sprayed it out good, put it all back together and...still the same. Not sure I have the tools/skill to completely disassemble the carb and soak it. Confused Any ideas of where to go from here? This thing isn't worth much to begin with and probably not worth anything if not running! I can't spend the money on a mechanic to fix it because that would pretty much defeat the purpose of selling it! ,Sounds like it's taking a while to refill the carb bowls. I'm guessing before the carbs. Try pulling the gas line and aiming it into a gas-can or bucket to see how fast it comes out. If it's slow it could be in the petcock, clogged fuel filter or tank vent. If the petcock has a prime position try that, open the gas cap, replace or try quick without the filter. If the fuel flows freely from the line the it's probably something in the carbs. Could be air, spark or compression too. Does it smell like gas(running very rich)? I'm just guessing from what I've tried to fix my bike, it's finally running great after fixing half of the above.,,,
