Default Re: Engine stalls when Idling

Ok I hope this is the end of my vapor leak!

My carb was sent to me damaged but i did not realize till now after looking closely at other photos of the same carb

I realized that the metal tab that helps make a seal around the intake tube was broken of from the very start

I do not know how it was not leaking before I did almost 300 miles like that, and it only stated acting up recently.

I think that we should make a section for future newbies that has detailed photos of what the parts should look like when they are received in good condition!

Just a thought.

I am not sure when I will have my repair all done thanks to some copper pipe and jb weld I hope it works. otherwise I will be without my bike till I order and receive a new carb. Such is life! I am just going to roll with and enjoy life.

I wil post pic of my fix when I am done. but here is the damaged part
