One of the guys at a local lawn mower repair shop in town. He said he specialized in small motors so I believed him. My bike is currently using the universal oil now.

Yes it is an NT carb. I have no idea what the jet size. How can I find out? It's whatever came with the carb.

He had his hand pushing up between my balls, and told me to " you're giving birth". I did it right apparently.
I think I am 4 stroking then because it is the opposite of smooth sounding atm. I'll do the plug chop first though to make sure that it is really rich. Problem is I need to find 0.5 miles of road that won't force me to stop and idle the bike. I'll post pictures when I accomplish this.

Also do I need to put in a brand new plug for the plug chop?
