Howdy All,

Looking for a little help. In a nutshell, my 08 would not start, compression issue, had valves adjusted and starting issue went away. Now when it is idling it hesitates. The rear carburator "pops" every 30 sec or so at idling, also when reved. I have checked to make sure plenum is sealed, carbs look very clean, slides are operating correctly. Could it be a jetting issue? It has 102hrs/1700 miles. I am not mechanically inclined at all, although learning quickly in the month I have had it. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated. Did I mention I also have an oil consumption issue. Thanks in advance to your responses

So it started this right after the valves were adjusted?

Yes, I believe it started after the valves were adjusted. Obviously it was more noticable when everything was torn off. Thanks

If the carbs were taken off for any reason I would check to see if they are in their boots good and make sure the plenum is sitting down on the carbs good too.

Also I guess if the valves were too tight it could cause this.

Usually a timing or lean condition causes this though

The carbs were not completely taken off and the plenum is seated good. How can you tell if the valves are too tight? How can I correct a timing issue or a lean condition? And thanks again for your responses.

Thanks,

Kurt

Recheck the valves. Unless it jumped time and I am sure it did not it should be fine

The best method is the use of a air/fuel ratio gague
