Question about Motorcycles
It appears the you have a clutch pressure plate problem in that it is slipping and overheating to fade condition. Check for oil level as most bike clutches run in oil. Check clutch cable adjustment. Check cable for kinks and split wires.

Yes! You will open those things up, and they will probably look pretty clean, but the problem with your carbs is in the Idle circuit - too small for you to see into. If you do a search of carb cleaning or related topics, you'll see that alot of folks with cab problems try to clean their carbs ... only to have to open them up again due to improper cleaning (They are difficult to clean properly, require alot of patience) So, I would suggest that you have them cleaned professionally, or at least buy good carb dip to get them really clean. Spray cans of carb cleaner are worthless. Might as well wash em with dish soap.

sounds like you need a clutch. Yes the friction plates should move a bit when you pull your clutch lever in that is how the clutch works what oil are you running in you tranny and have you tried adjusting the clutch cable? When you had your clutch apart what did the friction plates look like was there much meat left on them?

If you just replaced the petcock, you may want to go back and check for a good fuel flow. Pull the fuel line loose from the carb. Hole a catch container under the fuel line and press the start button. The bike should start up and run for a short while or spin over a few times. Either way, watch the fuel flow and see how is coming out of the hose. Does it look like it is enough? If not, check the vacuum line going to the backside of the petcock if you installed an OEM petcock. If you installed a manual aftermarket petcock, did you plug the vacuum hose that went to the backside of the original?
If you have a good fuel flow, you may have gotten some water in your last fuel stop. There may be a screw right on the bottom of the float bowl of the carb. Back this screw out and it will allow the float bowl to drain thorough the hose. Catch it in a catch container and look to see if it's got water in it. If so, buy a can of Sea Foam fuel conditioner and pour some in the fuel tank. This will help get the water out.
If all that fails, you may have trash in the accelerator pump or the slow speed jet. Take the air cleaner cover off the air filter. With the engine OFF, twist the throttle wide open while looking into the carb. You should see a squirt of fuel come out of the brass nozzle in the mouth of the carb. If not, your float bowl is either empty or the accelerator is not working.

Sounds like you have a float sticking in your carburetor, is this a single carb or a duel carb? , also gas can go stale and your bike will run like **** if it also has been subjected to tank condensation and water in your gas, that also maybe your problem, I would drain the tank and drain the carb or carbs, and start off with fresh gas and would use 89 octane or better, also pickup some StarTron Enzyme gas treatment, it will stabilize your gas for up to 2 years, and remove the ethanol from your gas, that is a bad for your motor, try it you will never go without it. Good luck, Rick.
