Hey All,



I just bought a 1996 Interstate that has been sitting for over a yr. Only has 7800 miles on it. It is getting less the half the mpg it should be getting, idles high, and I smell a strong exhaust smell like its is running rich. I think the carbs need to be yanked and cleaned. I have run some sea foam but no changes. Any ideas?





Thanks, Capt Matt

i think you answered your own question. carbs need yanked and cleaned. also change filters and get old gas out. new plugs and ride.

I agree, pull them off and give them a good cleaning, shouldn't need any new parts.



Sea Foam will only go so far.



Oh, and WELCOME to the forum.

So what can you afford? We are thinking of buying a new house. I have a pair of bikes and have toyed with the idea of selling the wing. 1996 Interstate with 9500 miles. Asking 6k but willing to talk about that. Matt
