ok, so when im riding, and i let off all the way(to stop or slow down or whatever), the idle stays up a little high. if i blip the throttle, it usually goes up a little, then after about 2-4 blips of the throttle, the idle will come down to normal. and if im at a stop, in neutral, if i give it a little gas, the idle come up just as i explained and i have to do the same to get it to come down. also, it will come down, but after quite a while, definately nothing normal. is this a jetting problem? im not sure where to start if it is. i am probably going to clean my carb right now and maybe that will help but if it may be a jetting issue what do you think it could be? thank you.

have you fixed it yet?
bigger pilot/adjust your fuel screw out is the answer........
I bet you have had a change in temperature, havent you?

so i finally checked my valves the other night. exhaust were right on but the intake were way too tight. i couldnt even get my smallest feeler in. so as soon as the shim kit comes in ill be fixing that problem.

ok, so since ive found that my valves are tight, they've definately got some hours on them, should i think about replacing my valves soon to prevent any possible future problems? i was kind of thinking about kibblewhite black diamonds and their spring kit as well. anyone with any experience please let me know what you think. thanks again for all your help.

engines seem to last longer if the valves are set to the tighter side of manufacturer's reccomendation. :applause: Not just me, most good workshops do this too.
