Took the bike out last weekend after droping the main jet 2 sizes and it absolutley ran the best it ever has since I bought the bike. So, last week I was reading posts and there was a post about the throttle plate cracking due to slide hitting the top of the carb because the throttle stop was removed or cut to short. (I think it was a post by Brandon) So with nothing to do this weekend I cut the throttle stop (per Bryan Hulse's recommendation in the tech section) to 9mm and that was no problem. Then the next thing to do was take out the slide and check the throttle plate. So I took the top off the carb took the locking nut off and the adjustment screw out (what ever that does) and noted that it took 11 turns to get the adjustment screw out. Slid the throttle slide out and checked the plate. It looked great, no cracks, no chips, nothing. Put the plate and slide back in carefully noting how I took it out. Put the adjustment screw back in (11 turns - although it might have been 1 more or less) and the lock screw. (heres where it gets weird) Put everything back together and it fired right up with the choke on. As soon as I turned the choke off it died. Kicked it, kicked it, kicked it (with my hand off the throttle) and it was acting like it was wanting to fire but it wouldnt light. So I pulled the plug and it was wet. Dried it off put it back in and it started first kick with the choke on. Turned the choke off and it died again. Kicked it, Kicked it, kicked it but no start. The plug was wet yet again. So, I did the same thing yet a third time only this time after it started I held the throttle on and then turned the choke off. It kept running so I turned the idle up 2 complete turns and now it runs like a raped ape and purs like a kitten on idle just like it did before I checked the slide. So what happend? I never touched the idle at all when checking the slide! And why would the bike run great before but after pulling the slide out and putting it back in needed the idle turned up 2 turns? This one has me baffled!
