Looked at the YouTube and the engine does sound good. Noticed you have the dash on the oil temp/pressure settings as well. I'd bring the idle closer to 1000.

Way up in the middle there’s a large flathead adjustment screw. It is the typical location for idle speed adjustment on carb’d models as well. I will bring it up to 1000 +-50 today. It’s gotta have some gas since it’s nearly empty and I’ll adjust it while it’s warm. Thanks for the help everyone! I learned way more about this system now. I’ll be riding it down to meet someone today and I’ll probably post one more time the results of that ride.


I got rid of my alluminum wings and picked up a Goldwing. Here to be a Light.
