    I got this bike off a guy a couple days ago. It runs but wont idle. I was wondering if anyone knows the proper carb adjustments, and where I can get a carb rebuild kit? I pulled the carb off and it looks really clean, however right in front of the main jet it appears if someone has tried to drill something out. It appears that there was a pressed in copper plate or something. I looked up the schematics and it doesn't show another jet. Anyone know what this is and if the carburetor is repairable? Or perhaps if there is a compatible carburetor that will work. Ive searched ebay and the internet for both carbs and carb/rebuild kits and haven't had any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The bike is in fantastic shape.
