    Feels like its starving for fuel

    2001
    Previously rebuilt carbs
    Ran awesome yesterday
    Didn't really wanna start, usually hits right off
    Then bogs and dies at various throttle openings
    Resever setting might be slightly better than "on".
    All the plugs look lean.

    Fuel pick issue? Isnt there something with a flapper ?

    Take the flapper off the fuel pick up in the gas tank.

    Thank you. Self explanatory? As in can I figure it out pretty easily?

    Removed the flapper. The door was warped and the whole bottom piece wasn't flush with the bottom.

    Think that's it? Ran fine on the hose.

    Check your fuel filter.
