Hey John... the slow jets are brand new...
It's doing better since i followed the advice of a winger who told me to set up tbe pilot at 3 turns instead of the 1.3/4 per the book...
It's now idling without the choke... i still have problems going up in the rpm after 25% on the handle... just when the mainjet is taking over the slow jet from what I underdtood ...
So my 102 seems really too small...
I dug out the jets i Initially replaced and they are 105...
Im currently trying to unscrew them from the rest of their body... corrosion has sealed 3 of them...
I feel like I'm gonna be better off with buying some new 105 from jetsrus...

New source of stress... engine off I engaged the 1st gear and was able to move the rear wheel with my bare hands without efforts... whille engaging the 2nd gear I couldn't move the wheel as it should be ...
Does it mean my 1st gear is shot or did I forget something?
