Carb cleaning question
Hi all. I am making my first attempt at removing and cleaning a carb. I let the bike sit too long. Anyway, here is my question:
When I was taking everything apart I got to the air intake. In short, it wasn't attached to the carb. It was lined up over the holes, but came right off as soon as I touched it. This isn't right, is it? Could this have been the cause of my problems (started, but died when given gas or didn't start at all)?
