I do have the Manual and I should reference it more. I replaced all 4 Seats, o-rings, floats and float needles. I luckily have a LOT of extra parts categorized in the garage. Here is what I was able to accomplish tonight with a bit of starter fluid. Thoughts and ideas?Make sure when you reinstall the seats you also replace the o-rings on them.
Float height can be done with a small ruler or the depth gauge end of a vernier caliper. Gently lift the float and lower it down until the tang JUST touches the pin on the float valve. Do not set it with the floats bottomed out. Do you have a service manual?
I will post another video before bed. Again, I can't thank you enough for your insights. I know your profile says you are in Tech, may I ask how you know so much about the Kawis?No leave them all capped.
If it won't drop below 9k I suspect the throttle linkage is holding open for some reason, Maybe a cable is not adjusted right or something caught up.
It was a stuck linkages. Getting hung up on the lower carb boot screw. Duh moment. No video today. I could not get her started again. I can see the gas, she has compression and spark, maybe I need to check the spark again. I used some starter fluid but that seems to lessen her will to start. That makes me think its not a, not getting enough fuel, issue. I know compression is good.... damn. Maybe I just need to recheck the sparks.... any other ideas world?Not sure what is going on with those vacuum hoses. Number two should be blocked, not number three?? This is assuming the emissions crap has not been deleted.
If your idle is at 9000 with the adjuster backed out you have a stuck linkage (or maladjusted) or a huge vacuum leak.
The hoses are just connected to each other, the 3rd carb did not have a plug and was simply open. I placed the blue plug on because, well why have 3 plugged up and not the 4th...If the emissions are deleted, why the vacuum hoses? Where do they go at the other end? Removal of this junk will not affect starting and bikes run better without it.
