I thought it was vapor lock or bad gas cap. I took it off and it seemed to clear up the problem.
Then it came back.
I then found that my spark plug cables were loose on the plugs. I tightened them up real good and the problem went away and returned.
I changed the plugs.
The M*88 carb is tuned exactly the way it says to in the manual. The bike starts every time on first kick ,if warm, and 3 kicks cold. Two to prime and one to start.
I took all precautions regarding manifold leaks.
I replaced the plugs.
I have been listening to other 45s idle on YouTube and mine sounds a bit different.
The hesitation is keeping me from straying to far.
I am starting to wonder if I screwed something else up while rebuilding.
Take a listen at idle.
recheck manifold leak?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
