Hey ya'all! I just got my first bike 4 days ago - an '81 Suzuki GN400, single piston, kickstart. On day 1 she started right up, but by day 4 she's getting rough.
She's backfiring when I let off the throttle, nearly every time, and kicks pretty continuously while in gear, most noticably in 1st and 2nd gear. It's getting progressively more difficult to get her running (starts but then dies - tricky mixture of choke, throttle and clutch to keep her running). From what I gather, this is a fuel mixture issue(too strong or too lean) or my carb needs a good cleaning.
How do I tell if my fuel mixture is too strong or too lean? And how do I adjust it? Any other tips/things I should look into? Thanks ya'all, this is exciting new business
