Hello Simon!

Thank you for replying!

I was thinking about this, that’s the reason I got the second carburetor ..

I think the engine should start/run if I spray starting fluid in the carbs/intake ..but it doesn’t.

I will clean the carbs again – I don’t have access to an ultrasonic- but I’ll do my best.

Something tells me that there is something else..last time I rode the bike I heard a ‘clonk’ noise in the gearbox / lower part of the engine just before I returned from my 1 hour glorious riding. The engine was still running after that, but became increasingly harder to start in part because I was playing with the carbs, especially the float height .

Thank you
