well we tried to unplug the TPS today (friday) and the bike is still doing the same thing. we never took out the slide in the carb so i don't think it is that.what are the chances of the slide getting off track by itself w/ out being removed?? me and the guy who is working on my bike are both stumped at this point. my mechanic is a younger guy. my age about 23. he graduated from MMI (moyorcycle mechanics institute-phoenix) last November. so i know he is still new. but i am pretty confident he knows his stuff. like i said we are both stumped and do not know where to turn. so any help would be sweet!!!!!!
