I moved the cables to the left (out of the opening) and covered them with clear vinyl tubing to protect them from the Scott's. That helped a lot, then I bought a G2 throttle tube and it is much smoother. There is still a pull, but I can't help but think part of that is vacuum on the venturi / slide.

I have an aftermarket tank, although I don't know the brand. I'll do a pic this weekend.

I'll poke around with it this weekend and see what i can come up with.
