this hog is a pos today. 


i do not understand why the fuel filter will not fill up with fuel.  i dissasembled the whole carb and didnt find anything but shinny new parts.  everything was clear and in working order.  pumps fuel like mad while cranking and fuel line unhooked, dribbles through filter to carb when connected to carb.

sorta kinda runs with the choke 75% closed. 


hummmph

Good thing the clamps weren't as tight as they really should be then?
