97' LC4 400 needs love

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I just picked up this bike for dirt cheap and it runs but it has a couple problems with it,

and I was wondering if anyone here could help me out and point me in the right direction on

how to start working on this thing. So far I've only been able to get the bike to turn over with

spraying break clean or starter fluid into it, and once it gets going it dies about 10-15 seconds

later. I don't know much about carbs but maybe it needs to be re-jetted? or rebuilt? I don't know.

I'm going to buy a new fuel filter for it and spark plugs, and while I'm at it change the oil, maybe 

that will help. Another issue is that as it sits, it's stuck in 3rd gear, it can shift up into 4th and

back down but it wont go into 2nd. Lastly it pretty bad exhaust leak coming from the header.


So in short the list is,

-exhaust leak

-wont downshift out of third

-dies after 10-15 seconds of running


Advice on where to start? Thanks all!
