choke

....there is alot of residue both black-ish and some corrosive white stuff...I''m wondering if the bike had saltwater in the carbs, the bottom area of the choke valve has some pitting at the bottom of the chamber...

if you would do me a favor, please take a pic of this same left side choke body housing, but with the choke body properly oriented in it. I am not sure if I put mine in upside down or not, but I am learning, almost the hard way, that I need to start taking notes, either written or photographic, and quit relying on my faulty memory... the dumbass in me strikes again (coincidentally, I am at the part in The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance when he is discussing ways to prevent some of the "gumption" busters)

This is "general knowledge" NOT APPLICABLE to engines with constant velocity carbs with have AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTABLE jetting via a tapered needle.

The part about using OE filter is right on, of course.

as usual, my requests are not as specific as they should be. What I was really requesting was the inside view, not that you would know what question was in my head and not specifically stated.

I thought, maybe, I was the only guy here with a day job, and that the rest of you were members of the "lucky sperm club"

Interesting point, I do know a few who would disagree and need to think about this for a bit but I do not think this is correct, anyone else?

The carb must be upside down to measure the float height.

IIRC, the needle adjusts the mixture in a ratio determined by slide height. That barely makes sense to me.

Leave the needle setting alone for now. I think new needles are about $7 each. While you're in there (TM)....

If it keeps stumbling, you're probably going to have to go to 145, 2.68 idle and I forget main jet size. Bing will happily fix it for $76. Trust me.

Factory Manual

Height is not listed in factory manual that I can find. I turned mine over and measured both carbs. If they are not the same you have a problem. The last bike I had a problem with had one side that was flooding because the floats were heavy and sinking. Weigh both of them and make sure they are the same. If you find a varience I would replace both of them. Here is the assembly pages.
