Exclamation Starting Problem

I placet this thread on SBN and maybe I can get some help here as well.

"I had the carbs totally cleaned had them re jetted to a stage 3 cause of the new pipe and K&N pods and I got them synced. It ran like at the low idle and it was shutting down before they were synced but it runs just fine now at just above 1000 rpms.

My problems is starting after the motor cools off. If I squirt some starting fluid on the two outside air pods (4 carbs engine) it starts right up and it runs just fine. Why is the not getting the fuel even with the choke engaged? With the starting fluid I have to give it a full trottle to get the fuel going and to start. btw.. .the fuel/air mixture screws were set to 3 turns out according to Dynojet, and the choke is working. I got the gas tank off and I'm getting the fuel from a gravity fed bottle above the bike. The battery is good and I did replace the rubber caps over the vacuum ports where the sync gauges connect. It just seems to me that it's sucking some air somewhere.

When the engine is hot, there is no problems, it starts right up. The only thing I did not replace are the o-rings on the intake manifolds and I will put some sealer on the metal cover that go on top of the carbs - over the diaphrams. Does anyone know a good carb mechanic in SW Houston. Most of the dealer people know just as much as my dog about problems like this.

We king, how 'bout the pods not being oiled. Would this create a situation of too much air?

Possibly...
What kind of bike do you have?
It could just be too lean on the idle circuit, or the carbs could be in a "false synch".
When the carbs were synched, how much vacuum was it pulling?
In other words, the butterflies are all open the same amount vacuum-wise, but are too far open, allowing the bike to feed off the pilot jet circuit instead of the idle circuit.

It's a Suzuki 600.

All four carbs were synced to just below -5 on the gauges.

Are there any real mechanics instead of the ones that wanna make the cash and put their on the line.

Yes, scum bag broads that try to sell some . No need for those prostitutes, had one, do not want to face another.

Is there a serious mechanic in Southwest Houston? All of these children from 1960 ( plastic side of wanna bees with no cash ) are too far, and they behave as they got something.

Back to the basics; is there a mechanic in Houston that is smarter then my Geman Shepherd and that is fair.

None of this, post the place and when I call the mother ****er has no to call back.

So suck a dog Patrick.

I wasn't at the shop today, doing taxes, but with that kind of attitude you're not going to get any help from me. Figure it out on your own.

And, before you run your mouth, the lady you spoke to on the phone was my wife, and she has probably forgot more about bikes than you'll ever know.
The more I read your post the more off I'm getting, probably not a good idea to come around the shop, but if you do please introduce yourself to me directly.

That was waaay over the line of him, but we both know he'll never be back. and if that _kid_ does some how accidentally get his bike going, with that maturity level he's sure to end up decorating a telephone pole soon.

Rest easy knowing his life sucks and yours doesn't, and if he does become a problem, we'll take care of him for ya Patrick. It's just not worth staying mad over someone as insignificant as that.

It's all good, I'm the same way.. people can make fun of me all day long and I could care less, but when they start talking about my family I lose it.

He won't be back though, I think Chris will ban him after he see's that.

Yeah,

NONE you lost thaing you. Eat your children next, or sell them. Stupid as the parents come the offsprings will not be much. So kill the mofos or sell them. Americans are going cheap these days.

Before Jesus came me; Serbian justice that tells you blow jobs are here to stay. Bushes girls just signed up for it. So join the fortunate.


Stupid Americans. No wonder they are killing your children.
