    TAKE A BREATH!!!



    1) It does sound like a sticking float valve. Or a bad valve tip. (it's rubber, it dries out & cracks)



    2) Different filter is available. Better? That's a personal opinion. (four holes good, no holes bad, engine can die with wrong filter)



    3) Jimbo sells the Jimbo windshields. There is a "sticky" thread in the Classifieds forum.



    4) There are links to PDF versions of the Service Manuals in Technical Help forum.

    Hi sorry about all the questions, new to computers and now found the search feature[very handy] .

    as to my carb issue everything seems okay except the valve needs a lot of pressure to seal completely. still leaks when not running, I will try a new valve. Thanks for replies, Great site and information, wish this was around when i was younger. 2nd day riding and alost as good as i was 3o years ago
