  3. flat spot

    My 600 (1987) developed a flat spot this afterrnoon, around 4,500 revs she bogs down momentarily before picking up again. It feels like fuel starvation, except that she'll then shoot round to the red line with no problem. So, given that 90% of carburetor problems turn out to be electrical...

    Hi I have got most things working following my rebuild. The only niggling thing I seem to be left with is that the engine will turn over and start when the start button switch is in the off position as well as the on position. I must have a wire crossed over somewhere, but I have checked...
