hi, i bought my 1st carburetor bike so am not exactly sure what to look for when it comes to carb problems.
If anyone can briefly read my post and point me to the problem.
Symptoms are simple:
Smell of gasoline even when i ride.
Smell of gasoline when bike is parked in the garage.
Rear cylinder too rich.
Quickly opening throttle over 50% causes black smoke coming from exhaust of rear cylinder when NOT riding.
When riding, cant get passed 65mph. If i try to go faster, bike starts to almost like choke or flood.
What i have:
2001 V star 650 with only 7k miles
Cobra pipes (not sure if slip-ons or not)
AIS remove (i was only able to get to 60mph so removing it was a benefit)
What i already did: (so you wont have to tell me to go do it again)
Swap every interchangeable part from left carb to right carb with absolutely no effect.
Both ignition coils are at 20k ohms (good)
Needles are at same adjustment mark
Brand new pilot and main jets.
Opening choke during high speed hesitation makes it even worse.
Swapping spark plugs made no difference.
Valve adjustment did not help.
I dont think i have a timing issue. (no timing light to check)

I hope you guys can help me solve this problem.
