Yes you probably need carb cleaning also its a good measure to drain the oil because if gas over time it does happen that gas will seep past the carb or carbs and into the cylinders and into the crankcase mixing with the oil.

Sounds like you may have a air leaking before your carburetor, check your rubber boot that mouths your carburetor to your intake, look for a crack or a pin hole or maybe your clamp needs tightened, at least that is one thing I can think of that may cause the problem you are describing, hope that help you! Good luck Rick.

Rode home new 883;, next morning bike wouldnt start, battery weak. would not turn engine over. bike is 2009 with 40 miles, bought from dealer


how old is your battery? if it is 2 to 3 years old it may need to be
replaced . charge it up and see if it keeps charge, crank your bike
run it for a short time 4 or 5 min. shut it , and try to start it. if it
drags when cranking go buy new battery.

2001 volusia 805 lots of oil in airfilter housing it looks like it is coming in from carb area. Tons of smoke out of tail pipes


check your oil level to see if your engine is over filled.
Also smell the oil to see if you have gas in the oil cause buy a bad fuel petcock allowing fuel to seep into the engine if the bike was stored for some time.

Cranks but wont turn over


Did you drain the gas out before you stored it.

If its carb model, then the carbs probablt need taken off and cleaned.

If it fuel injected, the screens are probably plugged up....dump the gas and try fresh gas
