  1. I had Sta-Bil in all my stuff too. A healthy amount. Like much more than it calls for, b/c hey, why not? More=better, and I really don't want to be going thru the carbs on 4 bikes. And here I am, going thru the carbs on 4 bikes. All of this could have easily been solved by me...riding. Not 400 mile trips. Just a ride to the store now and then. But, add in a rainy CA winter and next thing you know, I'm going thru carbs. I got the 500 carb bank out earlier though already. Just need to get the bowl covers off tomorrow maybe sometime.
  2. I dunno. My 6th gen start/runs/idles/rides a-ok after sitting for months. None of my carb bikes do. So far, every one has needed a tear down cleaning.
  3. Bike buttoned up and idles and rides like a champ. Up next: my first gen. Same issue. Yay. My kingdom for FI on all my shite.
  4. Boom! That's it! Found out where it went, thanks to your foto, Cos. I knew it had to be held in by tension somewhere, and that's exactly how it's held. It does have a slight "bump" on the inside ends of those metal tabs in order to hold it in, but once I saw one side the spring and one did not, that was my clue. Thanks again. Now I can sleep at night!
  5. If that IS where it is, it's super odd that its just held in by....tension maybe?
  6. 1) WHERE did you find that foto? Amazing. 2) I'll look and report back.
  7. Just pulled them off again and flipped them over and still did not see where it might go. Didn't see where #10 and #12 went either. It HAS to be 10 or 12 but I'll be damned if I know WHERE they go. Doesn't seem like anything goes THRU the spring, esp. since I didn't unscrew anything and take it off. 10 and 12 just seem to float in that diagram. Thoughts?
  8. yeah that one is smaller and stays locked on the cable unless you unscrew it I guess. I'll guess I'll have to pull them off again and see how #10 and #12 stay on. It's the only thing I see.
  9. fiche doesn't show one there either
  10. yes it does but I didn't unscrew it or mess with it.
  11. That was my immediate thought, but it doesn't look like there's anyway for it to go on that cable. Too small to fit over the knurled blk knob.
  12. If only there HAD been a previous owner...I'm pretty tight on keeping this thing clean. It was just sitting between the heads near the idle screw. I would have seen it earlier...
  13. Odder still, nothing was disconnected other than the float bowls, so if it IS #10 or #12, it slid off something without being taken apart etc
  14. Ok...just for fun, let's say it was #10 or #12. Where exactly do they go? In the diagram, it doesn't show really. The longer I look at it, the longer I think the two coiled springs I saw on the bike are the ones shown attached to carb bodies #22 and #23 in the foto.
  15. Nahhhh. Those two are really tightly coiled springs that run between 1 and 3 and 2 and 4. Also those are really heavy duty springs, looks like. The one I found is a light little one.
