Hi
When driving my MB (stock carb, needle clip in second notch from top), I accelerate to 1/3 and it responds quickly
Nice cruise speed
But if I 'floor' it, bike keeps the same speed...
I have two ideas
1. Intake/exhaust is so restrictive that more carb area is useless
2. Needs more gas (jet size or needle clip position)
I would like to know your opinions
Thanks in advance

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND MY FIX WAS, THE METAL SLEVE THAT COMES OUT OF THE THROTTLE HANDLE UNSCREW THE SLEVE ALMOST TO THE END AND TIGHTEN THE LOCK NUT. AND MINE WAS ALL BETTER.

I THINK THE HIGH IDLE/WOT ADJUSTMENT IS MADE AT THAT SLEVE ON THE THROTTLE AND THE LOW IDLE IS MADE WITH THE IDLE SCREW ON THE CARBURATOR. THATS HOW I LOOK AT ANYWAYS. I COULD BE WRONG. BUT MINE WORKED AFTERWORDS.
