    • Well it's been a few weeks... It's been flooding on and off here since I last posted, so didn't get much time for side projects. Weekend before last I took a trailer out to where the bike was sitting, loaded it up, and brought it to town to work on in my garage. Much nicer than under a tree at someone else's house with only the tools I thought to grab and take with me. Since getting it home, I've spent some time trying to check the wiring... Discovered what looks like some DIY wiring repairs. Lots of crimp on generic single wire connectors.... Including a batch that are jammed into one of the factory connectors. Also found theres a busted wire on the key switch - the switch is fine, but one wire doesn't conduct. It's on the kill side not the run side, so I'm not that worried just yet. And tonight I removed the stuck screws on the rope starter cover and got that off. Lots of dirt inside, which I've scraped out. But the spring seems to have completely let go. Not sure how or even if that piece comes apart. Leaving it off for now, but definitely want to try and repair it for the inevitable flat battery while stopped at the far side of the farm. Planning to hook up a random 12v battery next and check through the wiring around the neutral and reverse switches and indicators. I feel like having those known working is going to be a big help in testing the starter circuit.
    • Popping through the carb is usually a lean condition. Could be a vacuum leak, when you put the air filter on it is sucking too much air from someplace else and not getting enough fuel.  Make sure you float is set high enough. A float set too low can allow air to be sucked into through the bowl creating a lean condition.  Chinses carbs are always a crap shoot. But sounds like you are close enough to make this one work. I had one that pilot jet port was not milled out. You just never know. 
    • Every chinese carb I have put on had the wrong jets in it. Too Small. Always had to either takes the jets out of the old carb or drill them out to the proper size.  Beyond that I usually have to shim the needle because the mid range was lacking.  Hope you got it. 
    • Have you read the service manual ? Is the dash flashing ? Have you tried getting the trouble codes out of the dash ? Are you sure the new battery is good, and fully charged ? Have you checked the charging is charging, and regulating ? Are you sure you didn't momentarily connect the battery up backwards, or try to jump start it but connect the jumpers backwards momentarily ? When you say it won't shift gears in forwards, do you mean it moves but only in one gear, or that it won't go into any forwards gears ? Just to clarify before I start looking in the books. And in reverse, it moves ? but the engine runs badly or just has no power ? If the motor is running ok, but has no power in reverse it might be a gearbox/control problem, or it might be an engine problem..  
    • Oh yeah we always need to remove the jets to clean them, especially that emulsion tube, which is the brass tube the main jet screws into and that runs up to where the slide needle drops down into it. That emulsion tube has small holes in the sides of it that need cleaning out, and the cavity it fits into in the carb body needs cleaning out too. The float needle's seat needs taking out and checking for dirt and that it doesn't have a bad sealing O ring or washer. If it still plays up after a real careful clean then you should check the fuel pump is working correctly, and that the charging system is working and regulating.. While you have the carby off you need to check the rubber manifold it pushes into for splits too.
