1978 Suzuki TS185 deceleration problem
Hello,I am new to the forum and need your help.Purchased a 1200 mile TS185 fresh from a barn in almost like new condition except the engine had been severely corroded from water damage.Purchased another engine from Ebay and totally rebuilt it using new gaskets,bearings,Wiesco piston and connecting rod.Carb was in like new condition and was cleaned and new gaskets and orings installed.All throttle and oil injection cables were adjusted to factory specs.Factory timing marks were used.Petcock was cleaned. The bike runs flawlessly except when you let off the throttle it surges and lightly pops back through the exhaust.The engine has about 3000 miles on it since it was rebuilt and has done this since it was first overhauled.The reed valve and reed valve block are original as I have not been able to locate one.
