Question about 1971 Laverda 750 S
The most common complaints are the poor gas mileage, weak electric starter, not as fast off the line as the Japanese bikes, slower top end speed, top heavy and not a good commuter bike. Additionally, dealers are few and far between. Install new spark plugs, clean the air filter, clean or at least drain the carbs to remove any water in the float bowls. Do a compression check to see if the valves need to be re-seated.

Not sure what tombones49 is referring to, but it isn't a 1971 Laverda 750 ;-) The electric starter is very strong and gas mileage is good! A properly set up machine will start and run very reliably. Check valve clearances (and compression if you have a tester). Check ignition timing, contact breaker points & condensors (if not converted to electronic ignition). Check choke operation; clean carburettors and replace any worn seals. Go to laverdaforum.com/forum for more detailed help.
