O.K. for those of you who have been so nicely helping out my ignant self with my troubles thank you. So as of now I have put new spark plugs in, new air filter, taken the bowel off the carb and cleaned out the pilot jet and the main jet and cleaned out the bowl. (The original problem was the bike would start but once you closed the choke it would die) There was some filiment in the pilot jet that is cleaned out now. So the next problem is now the bike won't start at all. I think I've kicked the kickstarter 30 times and it won't start. I've given it a bit of throttle on the first 2 kicks to try to get some gas in the carb. So now I'm sitting here going &%$#@!??? Any clues?
