'89 K75C running rich....
Afternoon All, Recently rescued a '89 k75C from a neighbor after it has been sitting for years in his garage. After fixing some electrical issues, got it running this weekend. starts, idles and runs like a champ, but seems to be running rich. Occasionally when letting off throttle i get backfires at the exhaust. pulled and replaced the plugs, which were black with soot. Again, the bike has been stored for years, so vacuum leaks, fuel injectors gummed up, etc are certainly real possibilities.
So, where to start? Anything sound familiar?
Thanks in advance for your help.
