With the choke on on a cold day I start the wing and there is a lot more exhaust smoke out of the left exhaust pipe,is this a sign of unbalanced carbs which were balanced a few month ago but still has a hesitation even with the advanced timing trigger wheel?

Thanks for any info.

Ps wing was 28,000 mile but sat up for many years without running.

When do you notice the hesitation, off idle or mid RPM range. The early Wings were prone to a hesitation and is most likely fuel related. What color is the smoke or is it steam from water vapor. Next time you start it cold check the temperature of the cylinder heads with your hand and see if one side gets hotter than the other as it warms up.

Do you let it sit on the side stand? That could be at least part of your issue, and easy to test.



The aftermarket trigger wheel is not worth the metal its made from. I chucked mine, never looked back.
