Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 S Sportster Sport
I have a 1998 1200 custom i took apart the carb and cleaned it out, before i cleaned it it ran fine. now it ildes fine but there is no mid or high range. i checked the float and accelerator pump and that seems to be fine. cleaned the ilde and main jet and they are clean there is one more jet in the carb that seems to be clogged but im not sure. when you start it up and run it without the air cleaner and put you finger over the two little jets in the lower part of the carb and hit the throttle at the same time it runs great but will not idle. when you rev it up it will die please help erick
Did u install new gaskets, the engine might be sucking air from outside the carbs. u can use a propane torch (not light) spray a little around outside of the carbs, see if engine sounds different, if it does... leaky gasket.. u might check there is no unplugged vaccum hose.
