OK well some of it I asked before and gotten some responses, but here goes...
1. Oil light comes on every now and then stays on for a few seconds - to a minute or so. It has to be circulating oil otherwise it'd be locked by now... I've ridden a couple hundred miles since rebuilding it and it sees the redline quite often.
2. Gas is leaking out of the tank into the carbs. This tank sat for 2 yrs in my garage w/o a problem I took the old gas out put new gas in and it started leaking.
3. Idle and choke stuff all out of whack could be gunk in the carbs but I figured it'd be cleaned out by now. Everytime I start it, it has to have the choke on even if I've just turned it off from a long hot ride, can't drop idle down otherwise it dies.
4. This morning it started making a noise when I started it up almost like a clicking when it first starts. Thought it could be the battery but it was after it was started as soon as it started. Can't tell you more about the noise as I was pissed off already and that was just on top of everything else.
And to top it all off I know I need chain, sprockets, and tires...
I'm just to the point of I'm tired of putting money into it... I bought the bike used 6-7 yrs ago for 4k, the first winter I put 1500 into it, I just put another 1200 into it to rebuild it. And I'm going to have to put 4-500 hundred for just the stuff I know chain, sprocket, tires.
If it's the fuel pump that is bad and why it's leaking gas into the carbs that's 500.... Sad thing is the more I talk about the the more pissed off I feel about it.... I think it's about to go.... I told someone at work if I didn't have so much money in it I'd have already pushed it in a river.
