With 50 degree weather I decided to take my bike out of winter storage, but it's running like crap. Upon putting it away last fall I filled it with gas and also sta-bil, took the battery out and left it on a tender, emptied float bowls, yadda yadda..

Now throttle response is terrible with or without choke pulled. I have to rev it like crazy in first at stops to keep it from stalling. I just today gave it some seafoam (about 15 miles ago) and changed the stock jets (110 I believe) to 115s. I don't have any airbox mods besides snorkel pulled but my stock exhaust are de-baffled.

Neither of those things seem to have helped. I took it on the highway and at WOT in 6th gear I was barely over 5k rpm and didn't go any faster than 60mph.

What the hell should I do?!

I don't know where to find it! Too dark to look now. I have both the Haynes and Triumph manual so I'll see if I can find it in a diagram.

Forgot to mention POPPING in the carbs once in a while while revving.

Checked the rubbers and they're in great shape. Actually had to pull the carbs off as this was my first rejet experience and the damn stock screws are a pain as we all know.

Those SS replacement screws were the best $5 ever spent.


EDIT: I Tried the gas cap vent but to no avail and removing the cap while running did not make any difference. I'll check the overflow tube tomorrow.

I think I will drain the tank completely through the float bowls and use the gas for the lawn mower or something.
