What does "jerking it around" mean? Are you physically shaking the bike around? If so my first guess would be junk in the gas tank and/or in the carb float bowl. More info needed....

Sounds like either a loose wire or bad ground, or some problem with clogged fuel lines/filters, or a float level that is not right...

We will need more info with better technical terms to properly diagnose it... :cry:

Is the fuel tank rusty inside that will give you problems for ever it will keep clogging everything :smashpc:There is some stuff you can get at your local auto parts I don't remember what it's called but it was white like milk you roll it around in the tank to coat the inside like a rubber skin Then clean the carb for the last time :cry: :cry:
