Hey, I picked up a 2000 Derbi Variant Revolution the other day and I'm having some problems getting it going.
Most of the wiring was disconnected, took my time and a diagram and got that all back together. Big frame ground wire is good, tight and clean.
It will occasionally start and run a few seconds on starting fluid. So I pulled the plug and it's a little wet, but it doesn't seem like it's getting enough fuel. If I kick start it with the throttle closed it'll try to fire. If I try and kick it at WOT, it occasionally burps through the carb.
I got bad reeds, don't I? I know it's gonna be a pain to change, my big problem is finding the right ones. Anyone help?
Another thing, when I pull the fuel line off the fuel petcock diaphragm, it just pours out fuel. I thought that was supposed to be vacuum operated, and should only flow fuel when there's a vacuum on it.
This is a sweet bike and I'd love to get it back on the road, I just need a little guidance to do so here.
