Question about Motorcycles
Ski starts runs for short time then breaks down and back fires and stops. Cleaned carbs and set high 1 1/2 low 1 1/4 checked for blocks in fuel lines all good. The ski was sunk and stared after riding but still hasn't run properly after that. Any help would be great thanks.
Check filters ,check fuel for contamination(water),check air breather system for blockage lube all control cables check choke operation!

im not certain as i dont have a maintanance manual for that bike, but intake valve clearance should be approx .004 and exhaust valves should be appxox .008 also you may consider taking the coils to a shop and have them tested. coils after warming up will begin to fail once they start to go bad. spark will be great when the bike is cold, but once it warms up, spark begins to fade and hit and miss.. this may be the problem. hope this helps.

Pay special attention to the parts in red. DO NOT mix parts from the front carb with parts from the back carb. When removing adjuster screws and jets, count the number of turns to remove them, write it down, and replace with the same number of turns.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx
Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual.
www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Most all of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.
A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!
