yes well now I read some of the pinned notes..
actually I'm relieved to see that I did remember some stuff. like marking the throttle cable and return... so not everything went wrong that could have - all tho surely something has gone wrong!!
I did wonder if it could be due to not replacing the jubilee clips on the manifold/ entrance to cyclinder head???. was quite tough mounting the carb!!
if that was leaking under pressure could give some weirdness ???
to be honest kicking my self for not trying the sidestand bypass operation sooner!
basically I just opened the carb and had a look inside.. didnt mean to open the top and wasnt expecting the jack in a box!
the float wouldnt have an immediate effect- as it would take time to burn off the fuel already in there?
the butterfly seems to work ok, since the bike runs ok ish - apart from jabs of gas = ie consistent seems ok,.
then would it be something to do with the needle that moves up and down? cant see what makes it move - so its easily blocked somehow? the diaphragm looked in reasonable shape, no holes or anything..
the interior looked a bit dirty - few stains here and there stuck to the metal...
doh! feeling like a dummy - but also feel that I did learn something today!
