Since I got the bike back in March I have been having problems with the carb. It has been running super rich, so much so that I had the A/F mixture screw completely closed. I learned something about carbs from a friend of mine. He stated that if something is clogged the carb will draw fuel from where ever it can. So I tore it apart one more time and found a partially clogged idle jet. So this carb was pulling from the fast jet at idle and causing all kinds of havoc. I kept thinking I had a leaking inrichener or accelerator pump. Never would of thought too much fuel would be caused by a clog. But things are running like they are supposed to now.
