Is this why my newly aquired VF1000F won't run correctly ( it does Idle ) ; P
Almost certainly. The clogged bit covered in black stuff is the main jet that operates at mid to high rpm.
The carbs on these are notoriously fickle so a decent ultrasonic clean of the parts you can remove is a good start. OR send them away to one of the specialist carbs guys.
Ya I knew that.I guess you didn’t catch the ; P at the end. Only one carb was that bad but all othe others were pluged as well.
The bike has sat for 10 years.
Didn’t expect much for $500
I did miss that.
Apologies for insulting your intelligence.
Good luck getting it going. Seen a lot worse looking 1000s than that.
