contact head2wind on this board. He will set you up with a way better jetting solution.

It sounds like some small orifice or orifices (jets) in the carburetors have varnish deposits from sitting for 18 months. I'd try disassembling them and using carburetor cleaner on all the jets.

18 months? Oh yeah...carb rebuild time. This is the problem with bikes that sit.

I order all my parts from Munns in Texas, but there are other good choices.

I just thought of something.He bought the bike in ca 4/28/2007.he used it for commuting back and forth to work.When he moved to tampa he worked at home.it was used very little there,That means it is jetted for ca. and also has all of that smog junk still on it.
What do i take off?I will clean carb as I rejett.

Do I gotta?

So on my new to me SMR, it has LV peipes and has been rejetted, though I do not know the detail. It has @ 1300 miles on it now.

I am fairly certain it has not been decannistered, etc. I was planning on doing that. BUT, This thing runs SO WELL. Carburates so well. Starts perfectly, idles perfectly, no flat spots. I am concerned about messing with it. I have heard these can be a bit finnicky on jetting etc. So am I missing something. Sure, it will get rid of a bunch of hosing and a few pounds, but I thought the primary reason for the work was to improve running, stalling, etc. I no gots these problems. What to do?

13,116 (S)miles

Did a club ride Sunday. Combo of slow 'n tight, and fast 'n twisty and curving. And a bit of slab to get to the start and then to get home. Good time had by all.

No pics from the day; so one from the archives

If it feels like it surges when you hold the throttle and speed steady at that point raising the needle one clip should smooth it out.

Decannister will not effect fueling during running at all. Helps startup, and removes hoses. Otherwise, your choice.

canister really has to go. once fuel gets backed up into the canister,and it will with a full tank and a hot day or a tipover, the carbs cant vent. The starter gets abused the battery dies and you get stranded.

Just Bob +1 on that. When I got my bike I noticed that at low RPMS and around a steady 35 mph or so the bike had a slight surge. When I took it in for the first service that is exactly what they did and it solved the problem. Still running stock cans and jetting (hoping to get some Wings this summer) and the bike has been a champ. I did de-sas it but was too lazy to remove the rear cannister in the tail.

OK so decan it is.

For those that have decaned, has there been any need to adjust jetting or air/fuel screws, etc.

If the the no start condition occurs due to the canister, what is the immediate solution. Waiting, bump starting, turn off the fuel supply for a while,??

Removing cannister and the carb jetting are unrelated. So if you're happy with jetting as is, the answer to your question is NO.

10-30 seconds of starter cranking worked for me. But eveyone's bike seems to be a little different in this respect.

Keep going! My "problem" with accumulating miles on the SM is that I always have other bikes I like to ride for different reasons/circumstances- so no one bike gets really significant mileage. I like the SM the best; but like the others as well.
