    OK, got the new 1987 running, but it runs like crap.

    Start and Idle like normal. but under acceleration or wot it coughs, sputters, chugs, pops.

    Did a basic lazy man carb and put in a new needle float valve and seat.

    That stopped the fuel running out the overflow.

    It has a stock 114 jet. Set the idle needle to 2.5 turn.



    Could it be the cdi?

    I have an 87 as well, and had the same problem. I just needed to use a lower octane fuel, and it ran great
