Troy, I live in north Alabama now, but when I lived in Hopkinsville a couple of years ago, I rode Turkey Bay just about every weekend with my son. Non street legal bikes. Great place to ride...

That's what I installed on my DR-Z400. Mounts directly to the...

If it is the fuel shutoff valve in the carb as it sounds like, then the only fix I know of is to simply replace that small viton-tipped needle. It is not very expensive (at least not in the States)...

When you had the carb off, did you check or replace the fuel shutoff valve (viton tipped needle valve controlled by the float)? Also, did you check the float level?

Doug, my hat's off to you! I wish you the very best, & will be looking forward to the ride report!

I can only speak for Bankhead, to which my experience is limited.
