    Hard starting...

    Bike was fine until I messed with it

    It is not wanting to start but when it did last weekend it ran fine. I detailed the bike last weekend which included taking off the tank. I am wondering if doing so dislodged gunk to the carb. I also cleaned the rather dry air filter and oiled it up and last time I did this I remember that it was harder to start. Maybe its an A/F problem that jets would improve. The bike has started on the first or second try up until now.

    Thoughts?

    Too much oil on the filter?

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    It turned out to be the choke acting a little funny. I pulled it out just like every other time over the last couple of years but it took some fiddling. I may have to take the carb apart to see why.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
