I've got an 2002 CA Edition, 15k miles, and I cannot get her to start after a carb rebuild
2 weeks ago I rebuilt the carb, 100%. Complete strip down, soak and rebuild with all brand new parts. (Only things not replaced, floats and brass tube the jet is screwed into.) I also triple checked the needle jet is installed.
Set the new mixture screw to 1 3/4 turns, and reinstalled. She fired right up, idled perfect (with a slight adjustment on the idle knob, she was idling around 2k, backed her down to 1500)
Went for a 20 min ride and no issues, in fact she pulled better than she ever had.
Came home, parked her. Went to start her up an hour later, and just looking at the starting switch she would fire up.
Now here is the issue:
Two weeks later went to hop on her for a ride and she wouldn't start. She turns over, cranks, and while playing with the choke, (I'm in southern Cali and it's hot out here) I can get her to sputter with a little whispy puff-pop. But that's it.
Mods: none, she's stock
I'm up for any suggestions (that's why I'm posting)
History: saved her from the salvage yard, buddy had her in storage for the past 4 years. He was doing 70 on the freeway when the chain broke. He didn't go down, but the chain wrapped around the rear and whipped through the entire rear end, splitting the air box and battery in half, literally. Not to mention chewing the chain guard and beating the living crap out of the swing arm, and eating the rear fender.
Stripped her down and rebuilt her from the ground up.
