Hi FB, welcome to the forum. The info you provided is rather vague. As OVSM said, what bike you riding? I'd start where he recommended. There's a ton of informed members here, and the more info you can provide, will help get quicker answers for you. Ride safe and keep us updated.
2007 1100 5k miles runs rich at low speeds. Dies a lot. Smokes black occasionally. Runs good at higher speed. Previous owner didn't ride it much. Motor starts lousy. Added gas treatment. Looking forward to riding it but I'll have figure this out. Thanks guys for responding. Hope this helps.
Almost forgot to mention that it is stock except someone removed the baffles. Local shop told me to change low speed jets to 180's. Sound reasonable to you guys? I tried to get it in their shop but 40 bikes in front of me. I'll try fixing it myself. I'm trying to figure out how get a pic of it on here.
Sounds like the float in the carb is sticking in an 1100 you have two carbs so follow the pipe thats shooting flames to the carb and give it a cleaning.
I was able to get a hold of an un molested roadstar for 1500 bucks as the guy thought the motor was toast because it wouldn't idle right... The carb was dirty as heck and required a rebuild as well for a whopping 150 on top of that she runs like a champ now...
I'm not as lucky B84. I payed $3300 and it runs like $1500. Your right N57 the jets are like you say. This is all new to me. I know I sound like a fool but I'm learning. Cleaned and checked the carbs. Found the little wire missing on one float needle. Could that make it flood? The jets are stock. Ran a tiny wire through them. Thanks.
