Cables could be the problem. I had a bear of a time getting them reattached and tensioned.
Pretty sure I got the needle cap back in the same way it came out. The spring was pretty well stuck to the cap screw.
Original problem that started everything was a clogged idle jet. I put a new 42 in. When I went to do the JD kit it looked like the idle was clogged again. So, I put the JD 42 in and fresh gas.
Working Saturday and still trying to recover from a cold I picked up last week in West Palm. Wish I could ride. Try StmbtDave, he's in town and looking for some action.
If you can help on Sunday I can have it apart and ready. Is there any time or day that's good for you?
