Poor Engine perf. after two year storage
|Poor Engine perf. after two year storage|
|John Camp said 2008-07-16 20:02|
Cycle was stored in Tucson for two years. Difficult to start without heavy choking and once started it would not run unless choke was left partial on. Engine power is very low with very poor acceleration. Cycle was stored with fresh gas but drained and replaced with fresh gas after the two years. Are the carb. jets plugged or coated??? Did the prolonged cranking with heavy choking (fuel) cause cylinder bore or valve problems. Each cylinder seems to be running the same but without power.
Thanks for any suggestions.
