Hi all, thanks for responding!I am not in the US but in the Netherlands, where Florida's are very common. And indeed, I think they are not a real Guzzi at all styling wise. As I am a real lover of mostly the older type Guzzi's (and my 2001 V11 Sport, see intro thread), I am convinced I can make this a thing of beauty, a real Guzzi. Now onto the issue: I am a fairly experienced mechanic, but not with carburettors. They always seemed to work for me, and I have never had to work on the split system.It's clear to me now the choke setting is much more sensitive than I thought. I know the bike should die with full choke on, but with partial choke it only dies on the left, which isn't correct. I'll compare the carburettors side by side (including choke jet size, it should be a 60) and report back in 1-2 days.
In addition to what Patrick says it sounds like the choke cable slack is not even between carbs
I know the bike should die with full choke on, but with partial choke it only dies on the left, which isn't correct.
Recently I've purchased a V65 Florida, with the goal of transforming it into a cafe racer.
I'll have to have a look at the plugs currently installed, will come back to that.
Love the amount of responses I'll have to have a look at the plugs currently installed, will come back to that.On going a pilot jet size up, what step are you suggesting?
After checking float levels, choke cables and plungers check if both choke jets are the same. If so and its still cold blooded increase pilot jet size by two steps. Say it has a 50, go to a 55. If its too rich go down to a 52 or whatever the next size is. If too lean go up another two.
Its worked on my bikes and it how we've tuned many a race car.
On straight ethanol its a whole nother animal. The above goes out the window.
But do as all have said first to ensure its not just jetting.
On both my Guzzis (1000 30 mm) if I set the chokes it fires up but before too long it starts to run rough unless I clear it but by that time I can just turn off the chokes.
Finally I started pulling one cable and firing it. Then the cables rusted so I installed individual plungers and alternate sides.
In summer I don't use them.
Its not out of the question to find different jets from the factory. A friend knew a guy who bought a small block new many moons ago and could never get it to run right. After much work it was found to have a head different from the other.
Keep us posted and good luck!
What is the valve lash set at?
