Sometimes it just takes a little bit for the fuel to get into the carbs. How long did you wait? Here is a fiche of how it should go....

Vacuum leak? Pop the vacuum line from the cyl 1, then pull the fuel line from the petcock, attach a tube to it so you won't spill gas all over the engine and suck on the vacuum line, you should be getting a stream of fuel out.

But yea sometimes the answer is the simplest, my killswitch can be a little...fiddly, I can get it so that it LOOKS like it's on but it actually is off, which is why I never use it. Make sure you're getting spark.

+1 on Mattson. I too have desperately searched for a mechanical error when in reality it is a glitchy killswitch. Because of that, never use it unless I have to.

got everything to work!!!!! thanks alot! i just had to wait a little bit apparently. my idle is crazy though now. it idles at 1500 for about 10 seconds, then it skyrockets to 3500 to 4000. it was after i put the idle screw in(which was a b... to put in) most definitley will need to rethread it, or unfortunatley get a new carb... i had to force screw it in with plyers. The weirdest part is when it gets to 3500 rpms and i put the choke on it the bike just dies...so im thinking that the choke may be on the whole time..any ideas?? just got the bike in, no time to check it out at the moment. just looking for any ideas ppl have..


thanks!!!

On my 94 if the bike is warm at all and I choke it,it instantly dies.Also with choke on as the bike warms
up the rpms will also increase.That's when you turn choke goes all the way off.
