Well, duh, thats pretty easy..... after finding another thread on here about a CL175 that didn't run I learned that there is ANOTHER ramp on the slide, on the bottom and it faces toward the throat. Somehow either I or the PO had flipped the slides from side to side. So, while they fit that little ramp on the bottom was facing backwards. Explains why I had to put the idle screws all the way in to raise the idle, and why is was so eractic after setting it. Fucks sake.. I never would have found it if it wasn't for that other thread. Flipped the slides, lowered the float... idles like a champ now. And rides a whole lot better. Seems to have a small miss still, but I think another set of plugs will cure that. I have to take the seat off to look at some wiring so I will post pics of the rectifier, etc when I do. Thanks for the input Marco, it got my bike rideable.... Hell Yeah!!!

Nice! Now get out there and ride the snot out of it! (bring a screwdriver with you though, you're gonna have to adjust those air screws...).
