    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??

    Wow, that's some interesting assembly failure. Easy fix though!

    that sounds to me like one of those OH...! MY...! moments when you look and put your right hand against your right cheek and in a low tone voice say OH......! MY.......!
    Good story, Trash
