Thank you shipping would be to Ontario

What year is it if you don't mind me asking?  Anything newer than 2000 will not work.  Thanks again much appreciated please if possible attach pic.

HEY! HEY! 25 in Brooklyn transplant by way of Atlanta. Wanted a bike since high school and finally made the decision to take a class and buy one ('08) in May so still new. I try to do my own work on it but have a lot to learn. If there are any other female-riders in the area; HMU :)

Thank you so much for all the help! I plan to revisit the issue today/tonight and can definitely get the battery charged up @sledge. It very well could have been a rewiring issue (there were so many I wasn't familiar with) so when I walk back through it I'll check each one more thoroughly.

I know I left the diaphragms on when I sprayed the carbs (lack of knowledge on my part) so that could be it @mr72. It was set to "on" not "pri" though. The needle valve and seat was the only part I replaced in the carb as they were worn and the rest was clean.

As I haven't been back to it yet I haven't checked to see if it's getting fuel. Will keep you updated :) thanks again!

Sledge hit the nail on the head, if there's a clicking sound coming from the rear of the bike then the battery is flat. Charge it up or use a jumper pack to try and start the bike and see what happens.
 Carby's aren't something any old joe can pull down a put back together, it takes experience and knowledge or you will f%$k them up, either that or you will put them back together with the same problems.
 Keep us posted
I'm sorry moto if i'm derailing your thread because i'm really interested in what you are up to, but i'm going to go total loss on my street bike.
 I don;t use it to commute ,only for street racing so i think it will be ok. I'll use two batteries, one for ignition and one for lights.
 Back to what Mr smith has on his bike, if he is running total loss then there is no stator behind that rotor. I guess its only there to give the engine some run on, and being smaller than the original GS rotor the engine will spin a bit up quicker.
 I'm going to strip my rotor on the week end just a an experiment, and see how the engine behaves and what battery life i can expect. If all goes well i will strip the rest of the crap.
 I'm chasing max horsepower and performance from this engine, not fuel economy. Im' going to do a port job soon too. I'm not sure that the head has room for oversize valves but if it does, i'm going to do that too, we'll see.
 I'll probably remove the crankshaft balancer as well.
 I will start a new thread on my experiences.
 Regards Johno
 P.S Excuse my lack of grammar and punctuation LOL

I didn't look at your video, but it's probably a valve clearance issue. Mine bike does it all the time, well not all the time because im constantly re shimming the valves. Check you clearances.
I've got a couple.  One of them is mostly covered in duct tape but the pan is fine.  I was going to recover it and put it on ebay but you can have it as is for the cost of shipping from Virginia 23693 if you want it.
