So I cleaned my carbs and put them back on the bike. As the bike is running I hear a loud intermittent clicking sound from the carbs, and the bike almost stalling at each one. I’m sitting there pulling my hair out, trying to figure out what was wrong. It was obviously the carb valves, but why?
Then I realized, when I took the carb off, I had to remove the crankcase breather hose, and I plugged the hole in the crankcase to keep dirt from getting in the engine.
So I unplugged the hole and problem solved!! Hopefully this post will keep someone else from making the same mistake!
Hahah – Nice! Let that engine breathe!
I couldn’t even tell you how many similar stupid mistakes I’ve made over the years.
