Is the idle enrichment screw the little golden one next to the idle screw? And I just ordered some new idle jets today as well. I bumped the main jet back to 82. Once started it seems to run well. But it still won't idle. I will take a look at the needle as well and see if maybe I need to back it out some. I'll start with the enrichment screw. And I went lower because on the last two bikes I've done I've had to go lower than expected. I'll keep tinkering. Thank you very much for your input.
