I just purchased a 79 Moby and it just won't idle. It starts very easy, and gets up to 20 mph pretty consistently, but feels like it could give a little more at the 20 mph top speed. It is a type A so it should go 30mph. It will run without the throttle for about 5 seconds and the stalls when the bike is about to stop moving.
The bike is in tip top shape with only 300 miles on it - Like new condition (odometer works). Carb is like new, airbox is super clean, throttle works great. I adjusted the throttle screw and nothing happened- Does it ever? not in my experience.
I've read Fred's guide many times and this thing is in such good shape, I don't want to start dismantling it. I was afraid to even touch the carb.
Anyone have a similar problem they can advise on to get this thing idling- topping out? Thanks for the help.
