Question about 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster
Sounds like your high speed jet is still stopped up. You didn't tell me what type of carb you have on the bike but what you've got to do is the same. You must remove the float bowl, remove the main jet, and clean it out. Also, clean the very bottom of the inside of the float bowl.
Flushing a carb will not clean the jets. The reason is that fuel must be able to flow though the jet in order for any chemical additive to clean it. If no fuel flows through, no cleaning action is taking place. That's why you must disassemble the carb and manually clean the small holes in the jets.
If you need more specific instructions, I need to know exactly what carb you've got on the engine. Good Luck, Steve
