So my ‘88 1100 (with flat slide carbs) runs great from an aux tank with the #2 vacuum hose capped.
But when I connect the vacuum hose (see pic) to the petcock it idles WAY too high, like it has a vacuum leak and is sucking too much air.
What am I doing wrong?
It has to be an air leak somewhere in the vacuum hose. If you zoom in on the pic you posted it almost looks like there is a small crack towards the top of the hose in the pic. I’m having some vacuum problems on mine at the moment. I just ordered a petcock to switch to gravity operated. My problem is that from a aux tank using gravity feed it’s fine, but when I connect the vacuum hose and shut the bike off I get a slight gas leak from one of the carb overflows when the bike isn’t running. I rebuild the stock carb but used one of those cheap kits, at this point I just feel it’s easier to use a on / off petcock so I don’t have to mess with it
