Having a LOT of trouble to get my NSR50 to idle. Killing me!! I completely took the carb apart and soaked everything (that wasn't rubber or plastic) in gunk commercial heavy duty carb cleaner (comes in a gallon pail with a strainer for the parts to sit in). Put everything together, put in a new plug, bike started hard, and I had to keep blipping it to keep it running. I thought I was out of the woods when I found a couple of vacuum leaks - spraying carb cleaner around the area (intake and around reed valve gaskets) would cause the engine to rev up - all good. I made a couple of new gaskets and added some gasket sealant. NOT so fast . . . it ran better, but still won't idle!! wtf! I've had the air screw turned all the way in (as rich as I can get it) and I still have to blip the throttle to keep it running. NO IDEA what the Throttle Stop Screw is suppose to do yet. SOMEBODY help me! Guessing someone here along the way has been there and done that.
