    My 87 now runs like new, if not better. Always started and idled very well, but there seem to be a mis at half throttle under acceleration.

    to make a long story short I got a keyster carb kit, took off the carb, rebuilt it and bingo. Runs strong and no miss, yehaw.

    Cool. Sounds like you've got it dialed in.

    What did you set the clip on the new needle to demarko69? I just installed the Keyster kit and I'm having some real problems. The bike ran fine before the kit but the float needle was shot. I bought the kit and have since also purchased a #40 pilot since the kit comes w/ a #38. It runs on choke but not well and when the choke is removeed there is a backfire through the carb. It also slowly returns to idle when rev'd rather than a quick drop. I thought it may be an air leak so I replaced the intake manifold, didn't help. I am wondering now if it's running rich and needs the needle lowered.

    Hey demarko69 I just picked up an 87 and I can't even get it to run... did you have any issues with the starter button not working? Whoever owned it before me thought it would be a good idea to weld the hole kickstarter shut :/

    I started a post here if you have any advice or could check out my thread
