Default Starting a 1973-Yamaha 360 Enduro RT3

     

It runs great after starting. In order to start I must either squirt a little starter fluid or remove the spark plug and pour a cap full (less than an ounce) of gas into the cylinder. At this point I am suspecting the reed valve. I removed the valve assembly and all looked fine, except one of the four reeds was very slightly (less than the thickness of a fingernail) off seat.

Is there any way to twist, bend or otherwise adjust the reed to seat all the way?

I welcome any other ideas, suggestions or comments.

Thanks,
Mark

Default More Info.

Yesterday I moved the bike out of the garage and noticed a drip. I remembered that prior to working on the bike (new petcock, carb adjustment, etc.) there was an occasional drip and the bike at that time started fine. So I gave it a try and sure enough it popped first kick and started second kick. The only thing i had done was to move (possibly bounce and tilt) the bike. This caused it to drip and then start.

Any ideas?
