I've been riding it for over 2 years so far. It has an occasional part throttle miss. I did all the usual things when I got it, belts, thermostat, radiator cap, hoses, idler bearings, brakes, tires, then chasing the miss I did 1500 coils, dyna ign, made new wires, new plugs and caps, fuel pump, hoses filters multiple times, carb clean by me 3 times, one by a pro, tonight it was as bad as I've seen it around town, fine on the highway. Back into town the miss comes back. I top off the tank and it's fine. AHA! I think the formerly plugged (I did the speedo cable trick) fuel feed line has a hole inside the tank and below a certain level it sucks air. On the highway the rpm's are high enough to feed it sufficient fuel.
Then again I could be wrong but the tank was pretty rusty and I only flushed/filtered it. Time for a better tank, is there clean one left out there?
I'm thinking it's not practical to repair the feed tube in the tank, I'm looking for a clean gas tank.

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
