I got my bike running last weekend synced the carbs, I just can't get her to idle right, If I have the Idle down She Idles at about 500 rpm just barley keeping going, Hit the gas theres a little hesetation the first time, but after that you can rev it up no problems, flyes down the road great, and the Idle returns to 500 rmp at stop signs, But It barely keeps running,

If I turn the Idle up a little bit so it idles at about 900 rpm, It idles good, great take off no problems until I come up to a stop then she Idles at 2000 - 2500 rpm for quite awhile before returning to normal idle.

I've cleaned the carbs, synced them, I've sprayed carb clean around thecarbs looking for leaks but haven't found any, None of the linkage is binding,



So If you guys have any Ideas please let me know, The bikes sat for about 5 years before I got her, I've only put about 50 miles on it, Is it something I should worry about or should I just put more miles on her and see what happens

I cleaned the carbs out good pulled them all apart and used carb dip, Really cleans them up good, I cleaned out all the passages with compressed air, carb clean, and a small guitar string, I did put some sea foam it the tank yester day, so I'll ride it and see what happens,

No I didn't replace the orings on the air cut off valve, but I sprayed around with carb cleaner and it didn't change the idle

I did warm it up before I synced it and set idle,

I took her for a 50 mile ride today, Rides great down the road, but at about every stop sign it would idle around 2000 rpm, or It would die down to almost nothing,

If I push down on the carb linkages ( any of them) the idle dies way down, let go and it rather stays there or comes back up to 2000rpm.

All the linkages move free, and I have the free play in the throttle that I'm suppose to,

I'm confused:?, Any Ideas or should I take the old girl out back and shoot her:gunhead:. Just kidding, I just got her going and want to fix her up.

no I haven't, I'm in the process of rebuilding the carbs again, this time I bought the carb kits, just waiting for the air cut off kit to arrive.

I have a push and pull cable, cranking it closed doesn't help, I have to touch the throttle linkage and push it down to slow the idle, but it returns to about 2000 rpm when I let off.
