VN800 bobber build finally done. Need help
I bought this old 2000 Vulcan 800 a year and a half ago for $1100. Tore it down to the frame basically. Repainted, powder coated, new front wheel, handle bars, custom leather seat, bags, grips, new headlight. Fenders. Debaffle, air filter mod Blah blah blah.
FINALLY this past weekend I got fluids in her and got her running. But one small problem. I can’t get it to start on its own. I have to spray starter fluid in the carb a couple times. Then it starts and runs fine after that. But once I let it sit and cool down, I’d have to do starter fluid again to start it.
Took it for first test ride around my neighborhood. Probably a total for about 3-4 miles. Never above 40mph. And everything seems to run smoothly except one thing.
When in gear it seems to idle and run great. But as soon as I put it in neutral OR I hold in the clutch. It seems to idle or rev up a little higher.
So my questions are that.
1. Starting issue
2. Higher reving when in neutral or clutch in
