After reading about shimming the needle for quite a while decided to do it. Got shims (washers) from radio shack for a little over $2 (thanks Twbrian for suggestion). Watched u tube video which explained it but left a few key points out. Didn't say that have to remove both jesus clips so can pull slide/needle out. Also didn't mention that little yellow plastic piece has a spring in it which can be bent when putting slide back in..... After robbing spring from rainbow warrior carb I still have I used small seal pic to hold spring down. Nice that carb doesn't have to be removed to do this job. I used 2 shims which were .020" each. Saturday at about 11:30 went on my short road test. Ran great on pavement to my low water bridge dirt trails. That annoying lean surge when going about 50 mph...Gone!. On the dirt it just ran great, nice smooth power climbing hills......It ran so good that I'm leaving my 114 main jet in and not using the 116 I got awhile back. Looking forward to seeing how it runs on next "easy fred" ride in the Sierra's...... One final note is that fuel mileage of course went down. I used to be able to go about 90-100 miles before running out of gas and switching to reserve. Had to switch over at 73 miles. I wanted to see how long I could go on reserve but after 25 miles was in an area that running out would not be safe. Pulled over and looked in tank, Still a lot of fuel!! I think I could have gone 40 miles on reserve.
