did you use a touch of silicon gasket gel in the grooves to reseat the four diaphragms to that they didn't get pinched when you refitted them.
Alright, let me clear something up. I haven't replaced anything in the carbs. I just took them apart so that I could see if anything was wrong. I need to replace the stuff I know but I don't have the cash right now to order the parts and won't for another week or so.
Now, I have taken the bike back apart, made sure there wasn't anything messed up when I put it back together, like nothing clogging the fuel lines or air lines. I also made sure I didn't knock anything loose from the ignition units.
Also, what 4 diaphragms are you talking about? This bike is only dual carb so I only have 2 vacuum pistons. Is that what you were referring to? and yeah it seems like they were fine and not pinched.
I took the carbs back off, and it seems like it was flooding itself. I think the floats are sticking open, but I don't know what I can do with them to keep the needle from sticking.
