    Shouldn't be if the cable connects to linkage to work correctly. '76 used the round top Keihin and the '77 went to the later (PD42?) carbs with an accelerator pump on them, probably a sign of the...

    Great. Carb sync can easily do that if one is too high compared to the others, it then flows enough that when the engine drops back to idle the high one hangs the idle high. Why? Because the high one...

    That main fuse is a joke. I replaced mine exactly like you only some 30 years ago when I touched the main and it simply crumbled into dust to have nothing there. One second it was there, then it...

    If they use ethanol in your local fuel then likely a lot of the flooding, rust in tank messing up the carb needles. Ethanol + older bikes = fits.

    Depends on your viewpoint. Not many were made but nothing outstanding about them. The '79 model was the best one as it used direct lift rather than CV type carbs, it had more get up and go. May not...
