Bought a 83 shadow 500 been setting up a while cleaned carbs getting fuel to carb spark has good compression seems gas not making it to cylinder any suggestions
Can’t find a petcock for the bike cleaned carbs again tried using two petcock to make one that’s my problem starving for gas any suggestions where to get new one everybody saying Honda quit making them.Does it run with a little gas put directly into the cylinders? You may have to clean the carbs out… again.
I’ve looked everywhere on internet only petcock I can find is 18mm my fitting on my gas tank is smaller than that taking a pair of calipers home today to measure to see exactly what size I need would like to find new one but may have to rebuild old one any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Well, no, but a regular (or no) petcock would allow full flow at all times, rather than being restricted by vacuum pressure. Unless that doubles for a vacuum operated pump as well…
