I rejetted my bike and i was messing about for a bit to get the needle out. I used a screwdriver to hold the gate open from the top of the carb and pulled it a little hard. After that it would stay at wide open without any other input, and i could pull the curved armatures back far enough to take out the entire sliding gate assy, but i was blocked by the bike frame, so i left it. To get the gate back down, i had to lightly hammer it, till it reached a certain point, then it seemed to pop into place and work normally. Put the bike back together and it had a high idle. Sure enough the gate did not seem to be fully closing onto the throttle stop. It seemed the ap screw was interferring with the throttle wheel, so after looking for other things, i took the screw off, same problem. Since it was getting dark i removed the entire carb. Upon further inspection the AP arms are not in the correct position. Its too far to the rear of the carb with the screw pointing into the throttle wheel. Seeing this i tried to move the ap and it wont budge. The Ap linkage will not move at all. Its supposed to right, so that it actuates the diaphragm in the bowl? Any help is appreciated.
