you may want to check that the carb sliders work (if you have the air snorkels off you should be able to hold the throttle wide open and check that the sliders move up and fall back down smoothly if they are stuck or go up and don't want to fall all the way back down on their own be careful if you still try to start it may rev really quickly, make sure the throttle cables don't stick.

Sorry jokes on me I wasn't thinking right just woke up and realized that the sliders are behind the butterflies don't know how I made that mistake ah well hopefully my day at work will go better. Sorry for the brain fart.
Thanks, this fixed my problem, Started to get worried that there where some electric issues with my Z1300-79. Has been sitting in a garage för about 35 years. Always good to here the engine go round so next step will be to try and start it.
