    So I have a 92 883 sporster with the cv carb.......took it off cleaned everything....put it back on idles great. but when u rev it up the vaccuum piston hesitates and wont slide up fast enough causing the bike to die out. When you hold the piston up its runs fine but not on its own. My question is whats causing this problem, why was it working fine before?

    Either a tear, or you pinched it when you put the top back on.

    no it was bigger like it expanded then the seal seat but i did get it to fit, so pretty much that is the problem or there anything else i could try before i go and get a new one

    I would take the top off and inspect the rubber diaphram again and if there are not any tears put it back together carefully making sure it is seated in the grove all the way around and then you should be able to move the piston up with your finger and feel pressue if it's seated properly. If it's not torn you do not need to replace it.

    JUST READING THE OTHERS POSTING HERE.......

    WE ALL MUST HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM ONE TIME OR ANOTHER..

    For me the PINCH was the USUAL problem and what a BUGGER to get it right..

    Then get the pinch out and a section wasn't in the correct position to seal...

    The LUCKY and PATIENT few who get it RIGHT the first time....
    Pheeeeeeeew! ..... Glad it is together and working!
