Question about Motorcycles
My bike isnt running after sitting for roughly a year in a garage because of a deployment to afghanistan. it wont stay running while idiling and runs like crap when trying to ride. No power and bucking when you try to get on the throttle and usually hard to start. right before i deployed i had had the carburateor rebuilt.. im lost what is the problem??
It's probably because the gasoline that was in the tank and the fuel system had ethanol in it. I have found that if you let that fuel sit for more than a few months it seems to dry up and crystallize - plugging the jets and ports in your carburetor. (assuming your bike had carburetors). The solution isn't pretty - if you have carburetor(s), you have to tear them down and clean everything thoroughly. Cleaner is available at your auto parts store. If you are not handy, you probably don't want to tackle it. Lots of very small parts.....

clean the carbs and sync them and make sure the idle is set at the right rpm. with older bikes pulling the front end up with just stock jets and gearing takes alot of effort unless you dump the clutch at about 6000 rpm while rolling.
