its fixed and all is well. went out today and it runs perfect. that little trick about plugging the drain tube on the carb is a great thing to do. after i installed the snorkel yesterday and was able to go into 4'-5' deep hole today, water wheelie across a creek and the bike didnt even flinch at it. all day long i kept checking the little tube at the bottom of the air box and i never got water in it all day long. once i found out she knows how to swim... i was in the deep end all day.
thanks to all that helped me figure all my little problems out, i'm able to realy enjoy my bike now. rincon 650
