Default S&S Experts?

Does anyone know of an S&S expert lurking amongst us ? I went for a quick new years eve ride yesterday and she stumbled and sounded like she was only firing on one. I pulled over and she still managed to tick over. I decided to nurse her back home but she died about 1/4 of a mile short of home.... she still turned over and I had 2 sparks with the plugs out, any ideas ?

Sounds like a fuel problem. Have you got fuel at the carbs? Could be some crap in the system or even water.

I'd take a look at the fuel pipes, they could well be blocked. As I'm not familiar with the set up I can only give out the basics but certainly sounds like fuel starvation.

Also check the breather on the filler if it has one.

Logic would suggest that if you have sparks and fuel in the float bowl that the next check would be the jets to see if they are blocked.
