Hey I've got a non running bike and at a loss. Had problems for a while and now no start. *Symptoms
*Dies at idle.
*Runs slow/crappy bogs down ( -8mph Or so)
*Hard to electric start. (Have to kick the sh#$ out of it)
*Had to prime carb with gas if hadn't driven that day
So all signs pointed to valve clearances. I was a little intimidated and broke so I used a piece of pop can as a .35 or whatever feeler, did some research, and dove in. Sure enough, no gap. On either side (I believe)
However, I drove it a while before I adjusted them. It wouldn't start prior , still won't. Did I likely damage the engine?
I changed the oil cause there was gas in the air filter. Got New battery. New 19mm carb. New iridium spark. Checked hoses and connections. There is spark. Seems to be compression (finger test) I put a little gas in where the plug goes didn't have starting fluid. No love. Any ideas? would a 72 BBK solve my problems you think? Thanks for any advice.
