JD was referring to the slide plate I believe. I’ve never noticed, but Boit on the YZ side discovered that it was possible to put it back in upside down. I imagine this could cause some weird carburetion problems.

Hope this helps.

Thats right, the throttle slide has a plate facing the engine. A few guys have taken the slide and plate apart for cleaning (or curiosity) and put the plate back in upside down causing problems that couldn't be cured.

Yes, after turning it right side up the problem was corrected. It will never run correctly upside down.
