hey guys im making progress on my new xs650 after cleaning the gas tank and gleaning the carbs new fuel lines and getting her back togther i fired her up for the last night and the bike ran real rough. im going to work on syncing the carbs later but in the meantime i want to go ahead and get everything timed. let me start by saying i have slim to no mechanical experience but the info i have been getting on here makes things very easy to follow. heres what i have going on, when i cranked it up it fired up immediately then just died. it will not idle with choke on or off. it will run extremely rough while giving it gas but ever rough. i have had 3 other xs650 and all 3 had the same style pipes on them but this one was hella loud. it would shoot flames out of the exhaust when revved up. i could keep it alive by finessing the throttle so i took it down the road. while driving it ti wasnt getting power when you give it throttle. it would build up speed extremely slow. when the clutch was in tho it would rev up just like my other bikes, really fast. but in gear and driving it there would be a massive lag. i didnt feel anything slipping tho. im going to work on timing today and any insight would be much appreciated. i will include a few pics. i have no idea if these parts are stock or after market and not sure if that that affects how i need to time things.
