thank you thank you THANK YOU! I fully understand the tensioner now.
My fuel pump does shut off, which leads me to believe I have an inlet problem or a float problem as you have stated. I say possible inlet because the fitting where fuel is coming out is actually between 1&2 carb. It seems to be performing its duties if someone was to run into a float/inlet clogged problem as I have.
Heavy work schedule for the next week in a half. Hope to get some quality time with bike. Will keep you posted! Thanks again.
Get some carb cleaner and clean the outsides of the carbs real good before you open anything. Should be a pretty easy operation to get in there and clean them up. Then check the float levels. The carbs on these things are pretty straight forward and only look intimidating.
Definitely keep us posted.
