Hey all, just bought a 93' FB.

Having some issues with it, starting sometimes when left alone for a while and stops by itself every time. And then not starting..

examples:
day1: starts up, gets warmed up properly, runs fine, I drive it around a little before it dies. cant start it again, no ignition
day2: cant get it to start
day3: starts, runs somewhat okay while I'm warming it up but dies, cant start it again
day4: cant start it, no ignition
day5: ignites, runs barely along with the starter, dies after few seconds, cant get ignition again
and soooo on, really frustrating.

just found out that the airvent tubes was plugged, unplugged these.

fuel pump is okay and have changed the fuel itself

Today the exhaust now makes weird noises like its gulping, and gives some loud bangs as well. This is right after unplugging the air vent tube

any ideas? :)

okaay, so i just had the carbs up for a quick go over..

Tried to start it again, and I'm pretty sure it gets WAAAY to much gas as the exhaust caught fire for a few seconds after i stopped trying..

Never adjusted 4 stroke carbs, so gonna google around abit.. if I cant figure it out, I will have to get my money back :/ bought it ready to ride, and was way to expensive for me to go on an try to fix it

bah, ofc ONE of the adjustment screws is banged up-.- 3 out of the 4 taps broke off.. that's just a minor setback though

New question, how many turns out? it was at 3.3/4

plugs where soaking :p but after I took off carburetors and exhaust (which smell fuel from miles away) and let it sit over night it started up like it was new. WOW, what an relief.
I guess the system was flooded from getting too much gas. It still a little rich though, spitting some minor flames when throttling hard, but I now know the bike is OK so I can store it for the winter (norway-.-)

Thanks for your help Bluevitz
