marbling question??

OK...I know this has been covered quite abit here, but I can't seem to have any luck doing the marble job. I've looked back at other posts and can't figure what I'm doing wrong. I used two marbles (one in the front and one in the rear) and I plugged off the small line on the right side of the bike.

when i tried to run the bike, it would run on full or half choke, but with any throttle it would die. It wouldn't run at all without the choke

any ideas or pics would be appreciated

Adjust your idle screw in a bit and see if it helps. I had to also adjust the fuel/air mix a bit leaner.

The line on the right side isn't so much the concern, but the nipple on the carbs where it came off is. If you did what I think, that nipple has to be plugged/capped. Leaving it open would throw the mixture way lean causing you to have to choke severely to get it to run.

Kinda thinking along the same line, Dragon.

Took the seat off on mine and plugged the line from that end. So it still looks factory from the outside.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.
