Had the '05 dialed in with JD blue #4, 170M, 1.75 zip and decided to go red needle for the warmer weather (80 degrees or so). Now it won't idle without the choke on :)

I'm at around 500 asl, if anyone has come across this problem let me know ... I'll be in the garage changing it back to blue.

Needle should NOT affect idle.....check the pilot for debris. Make sure you turned the gas back on....

Confession: after switching back to the blue needle it APPEARED to be running a-ok until, I went riding that weekend and it ran horrible, at least at low speeds. Wouldn't idle, spit and sputtered at low speeds, backfired on decel. Ran fine WOT but other that that - no good. After researching on TT I came across a thread about an imfamous "upside-down throttle plate" and thought hmmmm ... maybe I should double check it out. And sure enough, somebody snuck in my garage while I was asleep and flipped my throttle plate upside down!!! So I got it running good again with the red needle and everything is fine ....... except......can somebody tell me where I can get a lock for my carb so somebody doesn't sneak in and screw it up again?????
