    On the carb, there is the main jet holder, is it tight, does it have a sealing washer?

    Yes. I just did about 30 miles on it and now it ran almost fine, only issue it will not pull red line, stays about a thousand under. I have been riding my 78 Honda XL125 and getting on the old F7 is like riding a super bike the odd thing is they both top out around 60.

    Heading up to 5000' with nearly 100F weather.
    Currently running a 107.5 main, should I drop to 105 or 102.5? or even down to a 100?
    Then it says online, raise the needle clip 1
    and one turn out on air screw.

    Or do I run it and see how she does
    Making the changes are pretty easy, so not to worried
    ordered 100, 102.5, 105, 107.5 and 110 jet kit so easy.
