Hey thanks for all the posts...feels great to work on my own bike..

coming together great...OK I pulled the carbs (88 hesitation) rebuilt

them float 7.5, pilot 60, primary 90...got them back on... fired right up.

How do I dial them in? Pilots first then sync?. Thanks

Learned a good lesson...tagged all vac lines took pics...could not get it to match the

manual...PO had vac lines incorrect...also the little elbow under the mat was only half there....Go figure Thanks all



Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!

Having the vacuum going to the right places can help the way a bike runs, huh?

So, is the hesitation gone?
