Everything lol, but the current issue is the exhaust is overheating. The bike has never ran great, but it did run with a miss at relatively low throttle. Now however its gotten worse. I had it running, warming up for about a minute, maybe a minute and a half, running at 1500 rpms, its spittin an sputterin and i look down and the exhaust pipe coming out of the front cylinder is cherry red! So i kill the engine. I wait for a while, come to the conclusion its runnin really lean. So me n a buddy pull the carbs, clean em out as best we can and now the problem has moved to the rear cylinder. This is a real problem, this is my only transportation and a cab to and from work every day is costing me $50 : ( so i took it to a shop, i thought hey ive got a lil $$$ saved up, so after 4 days they charged me $60 and jus jumpstarted it. The second shop didnt charge me ne thing but also didnt do anything, meanwhile the cab fees are really racking up. When i try to ride the bike now it seems that its running extremely lean still, i usually have the choke bout halfway on. After ive ridden for a bit, say 4 miles at about 50 mph the condition worsens, at this point the bike will not accelerate above 60 mph, even at wide open throttle. I now have the tank up, airbox removed, and am about to dive in again. When cranking the engine with the airbox removed i notice what i blieve to be excessive blowby as well, im not sure how much there should be but it seems like quite alot. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated
