    So about four months ago I ordered a bike from Kings. The cdi, magneto and the motor turned out to be faulty it took a lot of trouble shooting and help from the good folks here at MB to figure this out. However the guy at Kings was very helpful and sent a new one out right away no charge. I finally got her on the road yesterday and I was so excited. I just wanted to thank all of you an let you know how much you really helped. She's up and running, she idles high and even when I'm not throttleing she still speeds up but I'm working on that now and at least I got her to run! Thanks again, you guy's are the best.

    congrats on finally being able to ride ! :cool:
    the fast idle sounds like intake leak,
    check carb to intake and intake to engine connections

    Sounds like it to me too!

    I had to go to my local Auto parts store and search in the drawer of gaskets and found one for a EGR valve that fit, stuck those on the intake and the exhaust sides and I've had no more problems. Need a part number? I think I still have it.

    Part number?

    I'm at work at the Fire Station today but I think the plastic bag the gasket came in is hanging on a nail on the wall of my shop. I'll post it tomorrow if its still there.

    Yes a part number would be great. I have bad news though. I was riding it around the block got it to start and was running great. I decided to ride it to work (about 7 miles). It made it there fine no trouble. When I got out it would not start. Today I'm going to attempt to start it again, I'm hoping I flooded it or something small, I really don't want to have to go through all that CDI/Magneto **** again. Wish me luck...

    check that the idle screw hasn't vibrated out too far.

    It was actually idleing really high and so I had the idle screw about as far in as it could be. I know thats not good and I'm sure I need to do something about the air intake however that was just temporary until I could get a new gasket. My question now is; is it possible that not fixing the air intake could have caused the bike to not start? Maybe the screws came loose and the gasket ripped big enough to let too much air in to start? I don't know if that's possible I just hope my neglect has not caused a more serious problem than I originally had.
