Re: new bike new here help?

I actually think the fairing with the small headlights looks pretty sweet. A shiny new paint job and you will have something different.

Bypass the pump, but my guess is the carbs need stripping and cleaning.
What do you mean it "keeps clicking"? As soon as you turn the key on?
Is the battery charged up?

I think you can buy aftermarket kits but they probably just need cleaning.
Strip out all the jets, chokes, float valves and mixture screws and clean everything with carb cleaner and compressed air, making sure that carb cleaner flows through all of the orifices as it should.
Shouldn't need any adjustments.
Hook up a fuel supply before installing them and make sure they don't leak when held as they would be positioned on the engine. Then tilt them each way until they overflow and confirm that they stop overflowing when you right them again.
No idea about the relay, is the battery charged?
