okay it always annoyed me trouble shooting my bike by studying these threads, and the solution is never posted. so i solves my problem and i’m just gonna post the solution in the case that anyone else has this problem.

fred’s guide of “gas, spark, compression” rolls through my head every time i work on my bike. being that the bike idled pretty soundly, i disregarded air leaks, as spraying the connective points didn’t change much. however, it seemed that it was just enough in the collective areas to effect the performance. i put new gaskets on everything, torqued everything down, started with the 92 plug chop, and as you would guess; crazy rich. dropped down to an 80, and the bike runs perfectly now. as for the no hot-starting, i think that may have been a result of being way too rich. if it still is acting up, i am going to replace the condenser. i’m not sure what makes these go bad, but i had this problem recently and changed it to solve it last time. thanks for your help dudes.
