  5. had the same problem . PO had left the choke on and backed off the idle speed screw . as soon as I set idle I turned the choke on full and bang pop, then it started now its runs great . Idle speed should be 1200 rpms warmed up. yes clean the carbs

  7. Remember Murphys law. Don't rush to finish , do it right take your time. attack it at all angles. I have found in the many projects I have going that nothing is ever an easy fix.waiting for the weather to break so I can get started on my1982 xs400j. during the winter I have bought manuals repair and owners. cleaned and sanded the fenders and tank now they are ready to paint. now the task of wiring and trouble shooting the electrical system ( no spark issues.). I have learned more from reading the manuals and paying attention to message board forums . I need 1 more piece to complete the body work make that 2 going to dump the insect looking fairing and find a 7" headlamp and bucket and the upper battery cover . if all else fails i will just find a stock headlamp and include fogs.
