Thanks for the info Trek. The main problem I have right now is that I can't get it to stay running. Once I figure that out, I'll go over the steps you posted. One question, how do you check the rpm without a tachometer?

The screw on the side is the idle set screw. The screw pointing downward is for adjusting the fuel mixture. Therefore, out is rich and in is lean.

You can do it by ear but since you're new....I unno. Some timing lights have rev counters built in and there are digital tachs online for about $15.

Turn the fuel screw all the way in and turn it out two full turns. That should be decent enough to start it.

Turn the idle screw out and then turn it in until you just feel it touch the slide. Turn it in one turn.

While starting it, play with the throttle to find the right spot to keep it running. Hold the throttle grip in that position and turn the idle screw in until you hear the idle raise. Now you can release the grip and use the idle speed screw to adjust idle.

Try to keep it idling pretty low and know that no adjustment that you make will actually be worth a crap unless the bike is at full operating temp.
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

Thanks Redliner, I'll get on that this afternoon. I appreciate the help guys. My daily rider is a fuel injected inline 4 that I only do basic stuff, oil changes, air filter, wheel removal, etc. I haven't had carbs on a bike to play with in 9 years. I didn't need to play with the ones on my last bike except cleaning once in a while.
