Lack of Compression after Valve Adjustment
I have a 72 Daytona T100R and adjusted my valves per the workshop manual specs (first time doing this, last time I had a friend do it). I went to start the bike and the kicker lever has little to no force on it. When I press down on the lever I can hear air being sucked into the carb filters. Is this because I accidentally set the intake settings too wide and need to recheck them? Or do I need to back out the slider screw on the carbs, start the bike and reset the carbs? Thanks for the assist!
