My Motobecane isnt idleing(at least after it warms up) so I took apart the carb and cleaned it, after I did that (twice) it still didnt idle and I lost about 5-8 mph off my top end, later I was riding it and my air filter box fell off, and the top end was alot better, but the confusing thing is that before I rebuilt the carb the air box fell off and it would die after a short while but now it only runs well without it?(still doesnt idle) I'm confused to say the least? any sug.?

Thanks Didgya
