Is this your carb right here? 



If so, it's the same as the XL.  You have adjustments at the needle, the jets and the air mixture screw.  The thumbscrew is your idle adjustment and basically just pushes the slide up or down.   It's hard to see in the shadow, but on the engine side to the left of the thumbscrew, there is the air screw.  Normal adjustment should be 1 1/4 turns counterclockwise.

Just got up from my big ole nap.

Yep same carb.  and THANKS.  I saw how the idle speed adjuster worked on the slide. 

Im gonna re-attack the points.  The pic in manual is kinda showing what you described about the plate mark.  Its close to 0 also.  Gonna move it and see what happens. 

Maybe I am finding the reason Uncle parked it in the shed.

OK just to catch back up.  w pic

Heres the carb after soaking in pool for about an hour or so.



Also, while I had the carbs soaking I pulled the air filter.  It didnt make the "journey through time" very well.



Like Eric suggested I re-adjusted timing. Closer to factory marks.  and after the third kick she fired up and ran good for about 30 seconds.  Of course no camera handy enough. 

But, now she wont start again.  So, gonna double check timing and make sure things are good an snug. 

And now I got to go bake the old lady a cake and make her a bowl of guacamole.

Maybe more tomorrow....

Rachels, 72 CL100, Help hunting tires?
« Reply #19 on: May 12, 2015, 08:27:55 »
These Michelin gazelle M62 tires are about the only thing I can find.  That would even be close to a more aggressive dual sport tread.  That comes close to stock sizes.  They are rated for 92mph.

3.00-17 rear
2.5-18 front

any suggestions?
