So I should have just taken everything apart when the problem started. I found two things wrong and am pretty sure the problem is fixed.

1st The top of the carb was put on 180 out. This caused both the spring and the cable to be off angle inside the carb.
2nd I checked the airfilter to get and idea if the intake was clean but did not pull the filter to check. If I would have I would have found a fair amount of grit inside the airbox. There was enough grit on the slide to cause it to hang up. So after cleaning out the airbox the carb and greasing the inside of the airbox so it cant happen again the bike seems to be doing fine.

I know better to buy a used bike and start riding it without checking everything over. This was a great reminder to me to take the time to check everything over before riding.

Lesson learned.

Mike
