So, after I signed up for the Msf course, all was good until yesterday, get into the garage and attempt to crank my bike and realize she is having trouble starting/idling...AGAIN. The man I bought her from said she had cold start issues but they are nothing like the pain in the butt this has become. I'm wanting to practice and take the course and start riding and my bike is just like NO. Took out the carbs, cleaned them, replaced the oil filter and changed the oil and quite a few other things and she ran fine, started right up and everything was dandy, next morning she is at again. Not wanting to start or when she does, idle is a no no, unless you baby the throttle. I was so excited to get her but it's becoming a downer that every time I go to do ANYTHING with her, I can't. : right now my carb is taking a pine sol bath in hopes that it cleans out whatever I possibly missed. Lots of little black stuff down in it, so I'm hoping that was the issue? As someone who knows pretty much nothing of motorcycle mechanics, I'm not too trusting of anything I THINK is going to work. I'm between bring sad and getting REALLY frustrated. ghead:

I'm open to suggestions.
