    HEY GUYS, just want to say hi, and maybe some one can help me with a problem? I was out riding today, bike was running fine. Stopped to get gas, and when I started the bike up it gave a large pop sound and now it will not start. It turns over fine, all switches are on, has any one had this problem before? Thinking it might be the timing chain, getting my hands dirty tomorrow....:D

    Welcome to the forum!

    Was the pop sound like a backfire or more metallic?

    Let us know what you find!

    Basics first. Fuel and fire. Check to see if in the the throat of the carb that you get a spray of fuel when twisting the throttle. Next, pull the plugs and check for fire.

    Is the Vacuum line to the tank off-on Valve and into the Carb in place?
    (blown off by back-fire)

    IF not? Problem found,,,,,No fuel is getting to the carb. :s
