Hello. @davefrombc The carb was fine once it was replaced, I rode it for about a year and now this issue. Over the past couple days I have been working on cleaning the carb and messing with the mixture screw. The problem with all of this is you have to take the carb and airbox off in order to even look at the mixture screw. When I took the carb apart and cleaned it, I made note of the mixture screw position, it was 2 1/4 rotations to be screwed in all the way. Once I set the screw back to its original position I re-assembled the carb, threw it in and still got the same issue. When I had the carb replaced the first time I had it tuned by a shop. Now that I have cleaned the carb, I have been doing test runs with only turning the mixture screw clockwise 1/2 a turn at a time. I ended up getting that screw half a turn away from being screwed in all the way and the problem has not been fixed. Is the next step to put that screw back where I found it and adjust the main fuel metering rod? I am new to carb issues, but am trying my best to solve this issue.
@randy02136 I am not too happy with this issue and I feel your pain about having to take the airbox and the carb off in order to make any type of adjustments to the carb.
