Good call, Chris. man, you're good. I didn't even mention that bushing and it IS loose....you pegged that problem. I'll be in touch soon for that.
As for running a kit and pipe with stock carb? is that bad? running rich like I said.
Ballpark on a new carb? suggestions on jetting?
Also, is there a term for the "thumb control panels"? I assume it's a puch thing that just breaks..... because the bike is in such generally good shape but the instrument controls are bound on with electrical tape-- it works but I don't know what those things are called---!
thaniks again, I rode all day, what a nice bike.
