Bike idles crazy rough after carb cleaning

Postby cyrusyn » Wed Jul 05, 2017 4:22 pm

1995
32,000 miles.
All stock.

Hi everyone,
Someone knocked my bike down and since it has been running very rich. Wide open throttle kept sputtering the bike and there was no power to go beyond 60 mph. So I took the carb off and took it apart. I dipped it in a basket full of carb cleaning solution and blew with compressed air.
Now it idles crazy as in this youtube vid. Very unstable idling, no response to choke...

What am I doing wrong?

What Rellrazor said.
I would also take the opportunity to flush out the fuel tank, check the fuel cock and replace the inline filter
