after a month and a half hiatus from riding i finally got my suspension back and went to the track. I rode around about 2 laps and went back to adjust the suspension. I went back to the entrance and was about to take off when the bike died. I spent over an hour witht a couple of friends helping me push start it all over the track. it would run for a couple of seconds then die, it would also backfire sometimes. Well that screwed another week. I went home and took out the carb and see it had something clogging the jets. I put my hand in the airboot and I pulled out chunks of my v-force reeds. I know this is the cause of the hard starting, but can that also cause it to backfire?
