Re: carb slide sticking?
Yes, as Tom stated: the slide is a fairly precise fit to the carb body .002"-.003"
And as Fairracing pointed out...Tightening.
The carb body is a thin die casting...it takes very little to create distortion.
With some kits...the carb is a snug fit to the intake. With others, it's quite loose!
Loose carb to intake connection...tighten clamp to compensate...and yes a distortion of the carb body could happen causing the slide to stick.
Over tightening the top, cable stay, could also distort the carb body.
Edit: Glad your problem has been solved...:-)
