  • Running lean and popping

    Took the bike out this last week after sitting for a while. Lots of popping during decel and slight stumble off idle. Tore carb down and found air cutoff valve cover with little crack in middle and not sealing along edge. Also the intake manifold has lots of cracks in the rubber

      That's a goner. Mine gave up the ghost at about 15 years. Easy to replace.

    Yeah that has sure seen better days. Time for a new one and a port job while you are there.

        Porting them has nothing to do with deterioration, age & heat ruins both.

      I replaced mine with a stock one that I ported after I saw the looks of mine on the outside when I had carburetor trouble. After taking the old old off it was actually perfect inside with no obvious problems. May have lasted a long time. Also that old one was ported like you wouldn't believe. Super huge openings and smooth as a baby's butt. I almost put it back on.
