Thanks Trek, I plan to rip the carb apart this weekend, and clean the jets again.

Took the carb apart and found the main jet sitting at the bottom of the bowl. Must have shook loose. I cleaned it, and screwed it back in. Going to see what happens after nap.

My kids are napping. I work on bike during nap, but can't make a lot of racket, light sleepers.

No go today. Checked the spark plug, it was black. So I cleaned it checked the gap and tried again. It turned over and tried to start once, got a couple putters and a puff of smoke, then nothing. Giving up today. Going to dinner with the wife.

Well that just blows,  I hate that.  This bike was running before correct?  Was it hard starting then?
Install a new plug. 
Check timing. 
Set idle speed (slide height to just a little crack open), then set A/F mix to 1.5-2 turns out from bottom.

It was running a couple weeks ago. It took a while to start, and had to keep throttle open to keep it running. Now nothing. I'll try that tomorrow.

In the pics you posted.  I dont see an Air/Fuel mix adjuster.  Is it on the frame (left) side of the carb?

Nope, motor side. From what I read, it says treat it the opposite of the air adjuster on frame side.

I bought a new plug and installed before I had it running from the interweb. I read any ngk plug from a hardware store will work. Is this true? I don't have a spare right now, the new plug is the one that I cleaned today.
