I finally got it!!!! Matty you were right, I was way to rich. When I put in the red needle on clip five things got alot better, there was still some hesitation so I put it on #4. Same thing as on five so I ended up going to #3 and it runs like a champ. Starts and idles nice and pulls hard all the way to the top end. Anyone have any ideas on why it is so far off from what works for everyone else, even the instructions that come with the JD kit don't indicate that it would be red needle on #3 riding at sea level in 60 degree weather.Oh well, all I know is that I am happy to have a bike that hauls like this one does now. Thank you guys for all the help, it is truly appreciated.
