Default little riding story.

well after some time 70maverick and i finally got together to do some riding.

we did 20+ he was having some power loss issues at high revs.
would start to cut out then he would have to cycle the throttle to gain power again.
wasn't till last little leg of the trip before i figured out what it was.

i wanted to see what notch the clip for the needle was on/check the carb and found the needle upside down
asked how was it even working!?!?!? power loss was when needle vibrated and fell back down
choking out fuel flow and as he cycled the throttle it picked up the needle and gained power till
it happened again..

after flipping it right side up it smoothed out idle and ran strong!! go figure!?!? lol

anyone else ever find this issue??
