I did like you said and just got back from a 50 mile test run. And after about 2 months of being grounded, it looks like I am back in business.
I also want to thank all the carb/fuel experts that have helped me get my bike back up and running by reading the previous posts on here. This is my first bike and I have already tore apart, reassembled, and cleaned my entire fuel system. During that process I learned the pain and joy of a vacuum leak. I replaced the spring in my front ACCT as well.
One last question:
Does anyone know where I can pick up a couple of the in-tank fuel filter/screens that sit inside the tank before the petcock ?
