sumbitsh...i just noticed i put the fuel petcock on wrong and need pliers to shut fuel off instead of the usual screwdriver. poo.
i think the carb float is sticking, probably has a family of spiders living in there. i think i need to take the intake off and open the top caps to clean the bowls and make sure the float is floating correctly.
i sincerely hope i don't have to do a complete rejet, as it is a PITA.
i also have no idea why the headlight stopped working. hi beams are OK, but low beams do nothing. all other lights work. my only suggestion is that the contols need to be tightened down more to make contact. had to take it apart to put the choke cable in. horn don't work either, probably the same issue.
