Won't idle and no power.
I had the tank off yesterday. Didn't touch the petcock or anything else. Only thing I did was replace the hose running from the carb t-junction to the right air filter box / ear.
Today I took it for a ride. Ran great at first. Better actually, than it did before. Then after about 5 miles it had trouble idling. Tried adjusting the knob a bit, but no luck. It would idle really high when moving and then just die when stationary.
Pulled into a parking lot after a couple miles. It died and would start again. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and then tried it again. Got it started but not easily.
On the way home it had the same idle problem and it wouldn't really move. I at about 1/3 - 1/2 throttle it seemed to just stop. It would continue revving but nothing would happen. I had to have it in third gear just to barely hit 30mph (didn't try going faster than that).
Any idea what is going on? Last night there was no problems and now it is basically un-rideable.
EDIT: Not sure if related, but when I got it started, there was a bit of smoke from the exhaust (black'ish). Not much, but I can't recall it ever doing that before.
