I'm sick of my p.o.s!!!!!!!
I'm so sick of my p.o.s. bike. Maybe someone can help me, but I think a live grenade is the only solution.
My bike is a $600 1986 Yamaha Radian 600. I ride it only to commute on (easy on gas). EVERY time I fill up, the bike runs like crap for a few minutes. It will run when opened up, but won't idle for crap, and feels like its flooding. Here is what I have done to fix the problem, but no dice:
Removed the tank and completely flushed it (less than one month ago).
Removed the petcock and cleaned and tested it (its vacuum operated off the first carb).
Checked the fuel filter (self installed filter).
Removed and completely disassembled the carbs, including removing all the jets, cleaning them; removing the float bowls and cleaning them; cleaning the needles; in other words the whole enchilada.
Synched the carbs.
My first guess would be that I'm stirring up some crap in the tank when I fill up, but flushing the tank should have remedied that issue.
I guess I'm venting more than looking for a solution. Does Goodwill take bikes?
