Hi, trying to get a '78 400 hondamatic on the road and cannot get the thing to run off choke and under load. It will start up fully choked no problem but will only run fully choked. and engine dies as when you try to accelerate in gear. The bike does have about 30k miles on it. I just rebuilt the carbs on it as well. so I know there is tuning needed but I need to get it in the ball park first.

I am hoping its not poor compression. I have not been able to test it yet as I need the ridiculously small adapter for the tester.

any other thoughts?

That sounds like a fuel supply (probably carb) problem.......... :eek:
Are you sure you cleaned ALL the jets?
