92 Electra Glide Classic

This bike has sat for about 2 years. Ran fine when it was parked. The enricher has to be on before it will run without backfiring through the carb. Carb has been cleaned. Any ideas?

Harley Davidson Community (CV Carburetor Jet Adjustment/Trouble Shooting) Replace intake seals and rebuild the carb, now would be a good time to change plugs wires and clean the tappet screen

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

All of that has already been done. Intake isn't leaking.

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

Try some fresh gas with a bit of Seafoam?

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

Float level OK and not hanging up? This would explain the choke problem, look from the left side of bike between the cylinders, you will see a screw on the float bowl, this will drain the float bowl see how much and how dirty the gas is Check the vacum petcock and remove the gas cap and see how it runs

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

Already did all that. Carb has been cleaned, twice, float adjusted, new gas, replaced the upper diaphram and cleaned all the jets. At a total loss as to what is wrong.

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

How is the compression? Is the VOE switch working? Sounds like a carb problem be it a hole in the diaphragm or not getting enough fuel

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

Compression in 127 lbs per cylinder. Diaphram is new and the VOE switch is by-passed.

Re: 92 Electra Glide Classic

So , you are saying the carb has been cleaned, new gas, but has the carb been completely gone through with new parts, the reason for this question is even with a good gleaning bad gas will cause a lot of problems internally in small bleed holes and all rubber sealing parts
