how is the gas cap vent? I see a magnetic tank bag in the pic ... they are known to cause a vacuum lock and starve carbs.
I never heard that one before.


The early model gravity fuel feed fj,s have this problem..It can be corrected by removing the flapper valve inside the gas cap..then you can still use magnetic tank bag without further problems. If you suspect this happening ,try riding with gas cap open and see if problem goes away..

Pulled the carbs checked the float level all at 22mm, all ports clear. reassembled and now I wait for a new vacuum petcock. It's got to be the petcock!
