I have played with the idle adjustment and the pilot screw, also put in a larger pilot jet but I am not having much luck. Anyone have any ideas on where to look next?
Thanks
Try putting a bigger pilot jet in I run a 27.5 pilot and a 140 main jet. Your bike sounds like it is leak on the pilot. Check the throttle cables for slack.

Hey guys , this has probably been asked before but i just installed bar risers, i tried to re route the cables but it only worked for the clutch, the decomp cable is getting caught when i turn my bars to the right. Does anyone know if theres an oem decomp cable.from another bike thats an inch or two longer. I dont want to buy custom cables . Thanks in advance

I don't, an ignition key's not mandatory - only a kill button which I presume you have.

I used a Honda switch and a relay so it would be a little harder to steal. But just a switch that is open in the on position parallel to the kill button will work

Dried blood on the tank and handle bars will keep people from stealing it too, maybe scatter some spent shell casing around the scene, a little yellow crime scene tape, the bike isn't going anywhere.

Since I'm a simpleton, do I understand to add the switch before the kill button?
Thanks.
