Question about 1986 Honda GB 500 Clubmann TT
I am aware of whats available from Thumper stuff but am looking for rearsets, high compression piston, megaphones and complete exaust besides the white bros.unit. Also interested in finding the original white brothers hop up kit as shown in 89' cycle world. Cam, springs, piston, sleeve, carb..etc. Or any other after market parts for 89-90 GB500.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
presence of spark at the sparkplug tip/electrode;
fuel entering the combustion chamber. You can check this by removing the air filter assembly and covering the mouth of the carb with the palm of your hand;
it may also just be that the combustion chamber has too much 2T oil, try replacing you sparkplug.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

SOURCE: Air filter smell like gas
It's perfectly normal for an engine with a carb to have an air filter that smells like gasoline. The reason being is because of a concept called "fuel stand off" - in a nutshell, the air that is going through your carbs towards the cylinders gets bounced back towards the air filter when the intake valves close. Since carbs aren't that smart, the air coming back towards the filter picks up even more fuel from the float bowl, and then heads in to your air filter box to say hello.
