So some of you might remember this thread. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=736448&highlight=bike+running+poor After I cleaned it the first time, it ran great until I hit reserve and then it crapped out again. It sat since Superbowl weekend because of bad weather and today I ripped it apart again. Are there any tips to cleaning an FCR? I pulled out the needle and jets. Cleaned both carb and needles with carb cleaner. Now I will flush the tank again. Any other tips? I'm also gonna install an in-line fuel filter between the petcock and carb. One thing I noticed was none of the jets seemed clogged. That I could tell. I did notice something with the Pilot Jet. Looking through the end, it seems that it's not a perfect bore through it. Down by the end where there are the tiny holes on the side if it, it appears to be something. Can't explain. I have a tiny needle that just fits the end. It will slide into the jet until it gets to that area then stops. Is this normal or do I need a new Pilot Jet? It's almost like some burrs left over from machining the side holes into the jet. FYI, this was what came with my TT FCR Kit. It must have always been like this and has run great so I don't think it's a problem. What else should I clean in the carb? Where would it normally clog up? Maybe it's a petcock problem?
