OHVFORCE these are the 36mm carbs I bought off you he's talking about. Did you notice this problem with them when you had them? I tuned and rode my 700 with these carbs for a few days before deciding to sale them, they never missed a lick.

Dunno Bobby they were 100% perfect when they left here. Is it on the throttle side? If not I have the other carb bodies I can send you... Is the springs the same length? I will help if I can..

i dont have them with me but im goin to take a btter look at them are they anything in the slides that holds the needles in that can viberate up and possiable be hung and not falling back down? it still does it with the springs out of the slides just the slide and cap on it. i thought the same thing about the spring. its just like that there is something in there thats holdin it off but there isnt anything there

i got it it was the needle retainer wasnt seated all the way i was just afraid to press it hard enough to seat it down. but now its fine got it seated. ohvforce if you have a extra set of springs and slided that you would like to sell i would like to get anouther set to work on goin to try to solving the mid range lean condition i have ran into in tha past by cuttin the springs down and opening up the vacume ports in the slides to get them to open up faster and give it some more fuel faster
