i put the needle back in, same thing happens that happened before (which was dying before i get to half). Put the tape on and it will go back to dying at half throttle like it does now.
i'm not sure if this is true, i'm still going to try it and find out. what i'm wondering is, how can i get my engine to accept the amount of gas i'm giving it to bring my speed up. or, maybe i should just get a longer throttle cable and call it good. it's all a mystery and i'm about to enjoy a nice hot dog from cyber dog, so i need to go.
