new guy from oklahoma

just traded my '01 Yamaha roadstar 1600 for chopper. Guy I got it from says it has less than ten thousand miles and it had been sitting in his storage for the last couple years without being ridden, he was the second owner and got it when it was about two years old. Chopper specs: Year =2006 Builder=highly dangerous customs out of Tennessee. Frame=unknown (no marking that I can find anywhere on the frame). 107" S&S V-series with superstock jugs and supersidewinder crankcase 4"bore and 4 1/8" stroke, S&S Super G carb, S&S teardrop intake, Baker 5 speed, 3" BDL open primary, Left side chain drive, Paucho springer front end. 200-60-16 rear tire, 90-21 front tire, straight drag pipes. My understanding is that this engine is equivalent of the 94-99 evo. I have a lot to learn regarding this bike, i'm a welder by trade but do the majority of my own wrenching. I'm pretty proficient on my diesel trucks and learned my way around the roadstar without any issues. I plan to add apes, forward control extensions, oil pressure gauge, tach and speedo to the chopper. Also want to change the seat, existing seat is a spring seat that I cant seem to keep my ass from sliding back onto the rear fender even under medium throttle. Thinking about putting a jockey shifter with a hand clutch. But first things first, pretty certain I have an intake manifold leak. Idle is all over the place. Low to medium throttle starts out like a dog and then takes of like a stripped assed ape. I'm pretty sure the needle in the carb is sticking bc if I forget to shut the petcock immediately upon shutting down engine , within minutes fuel will be dripping out of the bottom of the air intake. Tried pulling bowl on carb and giving it a light cleaning but only slightly helped the issue, there was a fair amount of varnish from stale gas in the bowl with a light smell of stale gas (already drained the tank and got all of the old gas out of the system.) Last thing is, the oil lines don't appear as if they are connected to the correct ports or at least the setup doesn't match the way the S&S diagram indicates that it should . Any help, thoughts, insight or advice is more than welcome. If theres anybody on here in my area , id love to meet some people who share a common interest.

Try not to mount your oil gauge close to the engine, like on the top of the motor , especially around the exhaust...I went through three of them, and am still riding with the last one bad...
The glycerin in the gauge cooks easily and they will freeze up.....Also , any fuel injector cleaner should clear up that needle valve problem...Happens to me all the time, till I started using it on a regular basis..

Thanks for the heads up on the oil gauge. I pulled the carb again and the needle was stuck so i'm ordering a new one tomorrow.
