  • Finally running! But...

    After screwing around for forever, I've pieced the beast together. Trial run: putted around neighborhood, (I'm a bit rusty...), then pulled out onto main road. went into the throttle gently, and just into second - that bike kicked and roared, screaming revs, damn near pulled me out of the saddle. That would be cool, but that was not what I was asking for. Any idea why this could have happened? BTW - fresh oil and filter change. There are still two loose wires (not from the oil change), I think they're supposed to go to the carb, but I don't know. 2000 R*

    Your description does not explain very well what happened! Did the engine idle well? Did it accelerate well? Did the clutch slip or grab? Did the wheels or drive belt operate smoothly?

      Everything was smooth until I got on the main road. It was like the throttle just opened up . There is a slight "tick tick" sound (think bicycle gears) from the rear wheel when the bike is off, in neutral. Going to try to get around it today, after other obligations.

      I do realize there are a lot of things to straighten out on a 20+ year old bike, hopefully I'll at least get to safe/reliable status by the end of today.

        Tick tick from rear wheel. Isn't that the front drive pulley? Tick tick from the top of the motor is normal. There are a "push" and a "pull" cable for the throttle. maybe check that for the sudden acceleration.
        It's not that life is so short, it's just that you're dead for so long.---unknown.
