Mine did same thing

I have an 06 I bought used and it would sometimes die while idling at a red light. Always started right back up and, oddly, wouldn't die again at same light. I turned the air idle mixture screws in...

Few more thoughts

Depends what you want to do

XRL's are pretty crude if you are used to a 990. They vibrate a lot and I didn't like the spacing of the gears in the transmission. Sold mine. It was reliable, just not enough fun.

Yes, Factory Connection figured out the spring. KennyD said you can get an 11.5 from Alternate Cycle, but I haven't contacted them yet.

How do you like that FC 8.5/11 spring?

Use a wood chisel

Wood chisels work well because they come to a very sharp edge which can get started in the smallest gap - unlike a screwdriver. They are also wider so less likely to gouge up your aluminum.
