firing on only one cylinder
Posted 15 April 2016 - 07:45 AM
I just recently (less than 500 km on rebuilt engine) got my bike back from the shop and last Saturday it all of a sudden started running very rich to the point of dumping raw fuel down the exhaust. Now it is running on only one cylinder. I have plenty of spark and the gap is correct. I have also tried running some Seafoam through the tank with no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.

The valve may be staying open too long allowing combustion back through the carb.
Check those valves again. They are the most dynamic part of the engine that are likely to change with operation.

Now, can someone tell me how that could have happened? Can someone possibly tell me how those little screws could tighten themselves that tight? My first thought is that somebody deliberately got down on their pathetic back, pulled out a screwdriver, and then torqued those screws down very tightly.
