Well took the carb off and saw that the idle mixture screw was gone. Just drove two hours to the harley stealer for their $20 screw to find out its a kawasaki part. Would have been nice if he had told me that on the phone since there is a kawi dealer about 20 mins from my house, probably would have been cheaper there too. About to put it in now. What do y'all suggest i set it at initially? basically stage 1 set up. if i remember right after it was rejetted last year it was at roughly 3 to 3.5 turns out but cant say for certain.

Shes Alive! Damn harleys and their screws falling out! Wouldnt trade it for anything though! Also changed the trans fluid while i was messin with it. She seems happier than ever. Although i'm too wore out now to ride. Its 104 degrees inside my garage probably at least 110 outside, think i'll wait till the sun goes down. Thanks all for the help and ideas. First time posting and using a forum glad i found it.
