carb issues on my warrior
I have an 87 warrior, sent the motor out for UPGRADES a while ago. Had it bored, stroked, ported, polished, cammed, and resprung. when I got it back, it ran awesome. then I got married, had a couple kids, and never rode it. For about 7 years. (I know, and I am ashamed of the minus man points too). Anyhoo, I have been working on it and it is back up and running, but not so good. It starts immediately, idles well, and has good low rpm power. Then there is a very rough section of rpm's, the engine spits and coughs, but if you feather it just right, you can get through it. Then from about 3/4 to wide open throttle, it runs perfect again. The carb has been cleaned and recleaned, but I cant get it to quit that. Where do I go next? (I'm quite sure I must be missing something, but cant seem to find it on my own). Thanks,
PS any idea what performance issues would be from running too low a grade of fuel? (other than pinging, which I dont hear)
