anyways i think i found the problem. somebody on another post had mentioned an internal leak in the fuel tank, as this would suck in air at times and lean the mixture, but mostly it would explain the inconsistent performance. i was pretty sure the tank was okay as its almost new, so i started checking other things - low and behold i found the carburetor was loose, almost came out in my habd when i wiggled the air cleaner tube off. the o-ring looked good and everything so i made sure it was pushed all the way in and tightened in up. tried again the next day and fired up immediety - and now it responds to tuning as it should. i was way rich from where i had it, so with some high-speed passes i got the HSM set right, then found the LSM was rich as it would run-on for like 5 seconds when i did the pinch test. leaned that down a little so i would launch nice without hesitating, that raised the idle slightly so lastly i lowered the idle a bit - perfect. that was yesterday. this morning i went to the local track - put in the starter and fired right up. ran perfect, idles beautifully. before it would 'run-on' after you let off the throttle to coast from the air leak leaning it but now it runs so perfect. i went to the local track to practise and wow - its so smooth, the throttle and brakes are so sensitive and responsive, and the suspension! its like art in motion........thanks to everybody who posted something for me - every post helps because you have to go through one step to get to the next. with all the experience and know-how of everybody that reads these forums, anything is possible and nothing can't be solved. salutations to everybody who trys to help somebody else out - i hope i'll be able to help out somebody else, when you feel such appreciation for something the most instinctive way to make yourself feel you've properly thanked is to pass on the good nature to somebody else and help spread goodness. cheers
