i try :)
actually i tried to tailor my response to my estimate of your skill level. Since you seem to have no fear of diving into that engine, i think it's pretty high. And the odd nature of some things in your questions can be attributed to just plain old difficulty with the typed word..
but if you're new to all this engine/mechanicals stuff and i came on too strong, im sorry about that.
Anyway, the bike ran ok before you messed with it and thats a very positive sign. It means that whatever is wrong will have a simple fix if you can just back-track and find it.
continue to post about any progress or setbacks. i, for one, would like to know what's up with that bike.
