    Hey guys just pulled apart and cleaned my HT Carby and now i have Acceleration problems. Suggestions please??

    The bikes acceleration from the take off is very boggy and takes off slowly, once you have some speed up it buzzes like h*ll and flysssss.

    Are we talking bogging down? no acceleration at all? sudden, unpredictable bat-out-of-h*ll acceleration? flying monkeys poppin' out the tailpipe? We want to help but we need lots of details. Give us whatever you got. (Even if it's flying monkeys, but get pics)

    ditto kiddo! -specialy wanna see azzmonkeys!
    and as far as anything else....tinker, ride, tinker, ride......as example, this being my fourth bike built, my most recent problem/solution was too much air- as apposed to lack of fuel I thought...stuffed a copper pot-scrubber in my air-intake AND AWAY SHE FLEW!!!
    -GO FIGURE? point is, these things take a lot of patience, and even more guidance frm the kind folks as members of this site!!
    GOOD LUCK, AND HAVE FUN!!!!!

    I bet the float tang got misadjusted during the cleaning, or even put in upside down.

    I'm assuming of course, that when you fire it up you have too much fuel in the bowl.

    if the only thing you took apart was the carb then the only thing you need to fix is the carb. I would take it apart again and see if you can spot the problem, you can probably see it. Next time you do something like this a series of digital photos will really help in re-assemble
