Just shy of two turns. Bike started and seemed to run well, but I just didn't trust it, so I didn't ride it.

BTW since we've been having this conversation, I remembered that I had wondered the same thing you did (did I get everything installed). I took it apart and inspected the assembly and lo and behold everything was there (spring, washer, grommet).

I reinstalled the original adjustment screw, backed it out just shy of two turns and the bike runs well and rides well but still has the cough if I let it run around 2000 rpm then open the throttle. If I stay away from 2000rpm, it doesn't cough.

Slightly less than two. Same place it is now with the original screw. Looking back at this thread I see that I did try without spring/washer/grommet, but I ordered replacements from John. The replacements didn't improve anything.

I don't understand that. I've had no problems with my EZ-Just needle being loose. Been using it for nearly 5 years now.

What's wrong with the stock screw? It weighs less, and it's easy to get a small screwdriver on. Plus once it's adjusted, it's done until the next modification. I'm always trying to get weight off the bike, heck, I haven't had anyting to eat in weeks. In another week, if I live, this thing will fly...

The EZ-Just is easy to adjust without a screwdriver, and with my mod I can tell by feel exactly where the adjustment is at. I find this really useful. YMMV

No, you may be onto something with the weight issue. That, or eat one less French fry. Ever.

I added a short cable and knob and made it very easy to adjust. With the 60 degree temp swings around here I adjust it alot.

Probably help with the cholesterol too, and that would in turn eliminate a few pounds of fat buildup in the arteries. Dude, you are on to something, I think I'll skip two fries.

Oh, now ya done it, you just opened up "that" can of worms again... LOL

For the record, I tend to agree with you, however; there are a lot of guys in here that will tell you that the CV is self adjusting for temp, altitude, and probably humidity.
