I have just did a carb cleaning on my 06' vstar 1100.. After reassembly, the bike idles just fine, but when you go to take off in 1st is will be sluggish or smother down. Also does this when switched to 2nd gear. I haven't went past that gear. On the carb cean, I did take out one of the mixture screws on carb 1 but forgot abt it on carb two. I have tried to re-adjust the mixture screw on carb 1 and haven't been able to get the sluggish or smothering down figured out yet. I haven't checked the carb syn. yet, going to make a yard stick nanometer today and check that. Any thoughts on what I might be missig? Also might mention that it seems to back fire a little more than normal. I have hard chrome pipes on and a hypercharger installed also. Bike has been rejeted-not be me- bought bike with all of things already on it.
Also the bike still has the AIS system on still, so that probably accounts for he backfiring most of the time.
