If the secondary isn't working properly this would give you high rpm issues. But the rich enviroment is troubling me too.
I just replaced at the hoses and recleaned the carbs. Put about half a tank worth of riding on it then filled the tank. That's when I had problems. That is the same pump I filled at the last two or three times, without major problems.

The way my Honda guy (Small engines tech at my work) and I thought about the pilot is that it is low RPM. BUT! If it's rich and idle and low RPM (mine is) it can get worse on the top end. SO, I am thinking I need to fix the low end to have a better top end, then fix that.

Does that make sense, or are we tarded?
