Ok guys, I need some ideas here. First off, new rectifier works flawless, so we all know we can pull off that cheap upgrade. I need some input as to why the hell my bike keeps flooding and dying out. Still won't really idle right, lower the needles and it won't hardly run at all, raise them to the center clip and it runs than floods out and quits. I have sealed all the vacuum leaks, the float height I think is correct, ignition is new, have set the valves, etc. It seems to be happening on the right cylinder. Oh yeah, it starts on the first kick with no choke so I know it is rich at idle, but dropping the needles doesn't change that. How does the airscrew deal work? Can I try lowering the needle on just one carb? Any ideas? I am stumped.
