Hey there all. I finally got around to swapping carbs, man is it a HUGE improvement, looks better, sounds better, runs way way way better. I just wanted to post photos of my setup to get approval and or advice on anything I may have done right or wrong. Everything seems to be doing just fine, the only problem I have been experiencing is some dieseling issues. When I turn off the ignition (this is only on occasion) the engine seems to try and start back up with a quick two second rev that gets no higher than 3k rpm then it dies - Is this a big issue that needs to be fixed asap or is it okay aside from being annoying? Also what is the correct idle speed/ what should my timing be at???
I do not have a fuel pressure regulator hooked so I just hooked up the fuel return line in a manner that wouldn't allow incoming gas to siphon back to the tank. I also made a slight fabrication to the air filter and added an extra 1/8" bulk head with a barbed side so that I could have what used to be the the hose that ran from the intake manifold to the idle compensator and thermo sensor lead to the new air filter. The EGR is NOT plugged, the vaccum advance is hooked up and everything seems to be running just fine.
My throttle bracket is jimmy rigged and made from the old bracket and various hardware my brother who is bike mechanic had lying around, it's ugly but very functional and solid.
I also plugged up the holes where the the air injection rail used to be with spark plugs, I accidentally cross threaded the penultimate hole, bummer, it is sealed fine though. I am eventually going to have my brother just MIG the holes from the old fittings up and Ill use those later.
OHHH, and funny. Despite the manual warning in bold font remove rags from the intake before installation, I still accidentally did it. I was reall lucky because I managed to fish them out without removal by using some high tensile fencing wire with a hook... sometimes shortcuts do pay off, PHEW hahahaha.
