    when i put the choke on at idle the engine still idles. i put a gasket in the carb and also grey permitex on fitting because thought maybe one thier. however no change. i sprayed starter flued around head gasget, intake, out everything and no change. i took the air flilter off and put hand over carb and stalled imidiatly. hopefully it is not fully chocking and thats why choke dosnt stall it but my mechanical knowlede is really small so would like some input please. thanks in advance

    did some changes with the needle today. not much difference no matter where i put it however now when i choke at idle it stalls. is it just me or do we all tinker with these everyday lol. i guess thats part of the fun. change something and gives us an excuse to ride
