possibly, others who have done mods on the air intake have reported back that they get better top-end with the OEM airbox & filter than a pod filter.

Well. No go fellas. I appreciate your help. Going to have to take carb off and get rebuild kid . Same symptoms. I’m guessing super dirty as that has probably been disconnected for some time . Ran worse with hooked up to air box. Good thing is I have 2 so my son will ride the other . They oldest just told me he bought a new bike . So... going to see . I hate carbs lol

I thought the CA bikes vented the tank through a tank vent hose rather that the gas cap. But, I may be confusing it with some other bike post I read. Since it fires right back up, it certainly sounds like fuel starvation which could be a vent problem, but could also be a float and/or needle problem.

NO GO. Cleaned carb, bout a rebuild kit and only used about 2 -3 things from it. Will get up to 60 with choke on, 45-50 with it off. What rebuild kits you all using . Local bike shop said he clean / soak and rebuild for $100 . I’m about there buying **** now lol any advice . Venting is fine. I did not soak it only sprayed an entire can of carb cleaner . Backed screw out to 2 1/2 turns like original .

The general concensus here is that carb spray isn't always sufficient to get the carb clean. The price the shop is quoting is high if you are pulling the carb and reinstalling it. Do you know anyone with an ultrasonic cleaner? They do a very good job of cleaning carbs.

I use K&L brand kits. Unless a PO ruined the jets, all they should need is cleaning. In my experience, replacing the O-rings, float valve, and bowl gasket are usually all that's needed.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Looking online all I can find is the dual carb set up. Then I have to buy the dual intake boots . I’ll be almost up to $100 by then

I would avoid the dual carb setup. While the carb is cheaper, it does require the dual boots and balancing the carbs. Plus the Chinese carbs may not be as good quality as Honda's.
