1979 XT 500 Carburetor

Recommended Posts

I recently cleaned out my xt 500F carb and got my bike running again. The bike runs well, however the engine sputters severely at about half to three quarter throttle. I'm running the same size jet the bike has always had,and I haven't had a problem likt this before. any suggestions?

The problem wasn't the carb at all. I replaced and regapped the points and codenser, and put in a new plug and the thing is running like a beast. The plug wasn't firing hot enough,and was severely fouling.
