Here are the factory carb settings. main jet 105r, needle 0-2, jet needle 4ej3-3, pilot 30, cut way 2.5, air screw 1 1/2, float hight 1.04" + - .04"

If you need any other info let me know, I have a factory 1971 manual for all the F series bikes.

I've got a 75 f7 with two problems. The first is it bogs at WOT so I think I need to go up a needle position, that means moving the clip physically up, right?

The second is it won't idle for long, which would be to adjust the idle screw, is that the one that has the rubber passage out of the case to the front of the bike?
