Hi - I commented on a couple of posts with similar issues - figured I would start a new one
I purchased this 1988 recently - $1800 - 11k miles on OD. When I went to get it I knew it had some issues. I had to refurbish the gas tank - rusty - which I did using a kit - cleaning process - then sealing with tank sealer. I think I did a good job. The product Por15 Por15 seems really good.
I installed a new petcock.
I cleaned the carb - I'm not a skilled mechanic - just did the basics
Got er running and adjusted idle.
As soon as I get up to higher RPMs- it shuts down
When I filled it up at station - the carb started overflowing - float bowl
I now have it at a mechanic - he "jetted" it - now tells me he thinks it's the "kickstand switch" - I didn't know there was one - might be defective and causing the shut off
I told him about float bowl etc
Don't think he is paying too mush attention as he is really busy and understaffed (Covid etc)
BTW - I didn't add any additive
I'll continue to post as I resolve the issue
Thanks for all the help. I hope to enjoy this cruiser soon !
