Most of us on here believe that you are a delusional idiot, as evidenced by that travesty which you have had created for you with all of the cliche "cafe racer" parts, from the oversized tires, crappy shocks, over done Mojave tank and USD forks and modern brakes that will tie that crappy stock frame in knots, if you ever tried to ride it hard. You continue to prove your idiocy by attacking well established members on here for no apparent reason. That equates to either childish or stupid in my book.
Your total lack of experience shows and your qualification to offer advice is pretty low.
Have a sparkly day and try not to kill yourself on that disaster you "created".
In case I was a little too unclear, you suck and so does your abortion of a Yamaha XS850.

Alright so to bring things back on topic. I heard you guys out, learned my lesson and got myself another bike to work on. I found a 1982 Honda V45 Sabre with only 16,800 km on it, in a well maintained working condition.
Bike is in a great condition, and seems to have only one problem. When idling as the engine heats up the RPM seems to climb up and stick right around 3500RPM. In other words I have whats usually described as a "hanging idle". I did some reading on it and turns out its usually caused by a vacuum leak. My main suspect so far are the rubber boots between the carburetors and the engine. When the bike warmed up i sprayed the boots with a little bit of carburetor cleaner and instantly heard the engine REV Up. So those would likely need replacing. Any suggestions on what else could be causing it?
If anyone is interested here is a video of what the bike actually looks like and the idling issue.
man, that fairing is some funky shit.
you need to spend some time stylin' it up on the interstate.
that's a nice v45, ride the heck out of it.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
