Bike Trouble

Hi. I’m having some issues with my bike. I recently bought it from a guy who told me the bike sat up for a period of time. I’ve changed the spark plugs, the battery, gotten a oil change. changed the fuel filters,the starter clutch, had the carburetor rebuilt and the bike runs for a good 2 mins then shuts off. Also the front cylinder gets extremely hot to the point of smoking. The bottom pipe is severely hot and the top is fairly cold. Please help dying to get back on the road thanks!!!



Check for a intake air leak and check your timing. Let us know what you find.

sounds like a vacuum leak at the front cyl. You need to rebuild the front carb or at least fatten it up a bit. The front is way too lean. If the float level is low it will run lean also.
